    Pros

    Company is large enough and has enough history that many processes are in place to assist employees. Company has a large knowledge base and experienced personnel to assist each other.

    Cons

    While the established processes can often be helpful, they are sometimes overly regimented and could be more flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain relationships with established clients, as that is the best type of business development.

    I have been working at Morrison Hershfield (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard working, intelligent engineers who take pride in their work and excel in mentoring engineers and managers at all stages of their career. The management staff which I have worked with have taken pride in helping young engineers grow while maintaining a high standard of excellence for deliverables and client relationships. For the 5 years I have been at MH, I have enjoied coming to work.

    Cons

    With any large company there are some inefficiencies that can be burdensome. But these are not unique to MH.

    Advice to Management

    In general, keep up the good work. I'm thankful to have leaders I can rally behind.

    Pros

    Brilliant engineers, great company who is focused on sustainability.

    Cons

    Upper Management tends to be micro-managers. You have zero voice, and zero appreciation. Some VPs have no clue what they are doing and use their "status" as leverage to make you work by threatening your job.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, don't micromanage, and less bullying would make your employees happier and more efficient.

    I worked at Morrison Hershfield full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some very good people at technical staff level. Great potential if senior management was replaced, almost in its entirety.

    Cons

    Top heavy organization. Short sighted management focused on profits, but don't understand that profit is a result of having the right people doing the right things. Nepotism at the top, poor business vision and poor communication with the staff. Leadership is very uninspiring.

    Advice to Management

    Major restructuring required at management level, starting with CEO.

    Pros

    Mostly nice people to work with; competitive salary and benefits; beautiful office environment near terrific mall with great places for lunch! Perks include terrific "bring a dish" employee gatherings during office hours! Job training paid for if you pass the requirements.

    Cons

    Immediate upper management too aggressive; ability to think things through seems to be difficult; no training program.

    Advice to Management

    Consider selection of upper management personnel with an eye towards testing for aggressiveness, truthfulness, and ability to get along with other employees.
