This place has good team spirit. Staffs are knowledge and are willing to provide help to each other.
Engineer III (Current Employee) – Milpitas, CA – November 29, 2012
I started with HNTB as a project control engineer where I have learned the cost control and budget forecast skill. I, later, moved onto an engineering design position to obtain further design knowledge and aspect. I was able to worked on different roles of the project and allows me to interact with different design teams. The management is willing to listen to the staff and would help the staff as much as possible to move onto the positions they are trying pursue. Work time is normally stable but would occasionally require reasonable overtime. However, there is not a absolute distinguish on the discipline teams. Sometimes, it may be help for staff to concentration on on focus with some clear distinction among different fields.
Architect (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 21, 2016
1. Local architecture office leader lacks vision beyond his office door. Good guy, just not prepared to lead an office of this stature. Not clear what special skills, traits or other things he brings to the table. 2. Architecture office's director of design is not an architect. Lacks any qualifications beyond an undergrad degree. Technically suspect designs cause problems for clients later down the road. 3. Massive staff departures in 2016 due to poor leadership and dim outlook for winning work.
Sports practice leader is valued throughout the industry, Some good architects still there
Project Engineer/Squad Leader (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – May 8, 2016
HNTB is a top 10 civil engineering firm in the nation with exposure to many projects in the transportation industry. The company has a culture of developing junior engineers, but it's not consistent amongst all offices. The sky is the limit if you can connect with a successful mentor in the office.
Architectural Designer/BIM (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 15, 2016
HNTB is a nice architectural company.. One of the best that I have ever been, although they do not easily absorb employees from a recruiter or agencies but it's understandable because I think they just want to secure their own staffs once you have proven your self worth. But once you get on board, i think they will guide you with your career advancement.
High School Intern (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – March 9, 2016
My work at HNTB usually consisted of labeling highways and editing charts in Microsoft Excel. I loved it because I would also get to use AutoCAD to create my own drawings when I was not using it to annotate intersections and streets of Columbus.My co-workers usually gave me the work I got to do every day and they were wonderful for managing my time. The hardest part of the job was keeping up when I had large work loads some days. The most enjoyable part of the internship was meeting and working with new people. I had a great experience with HNTB and I am looking forward to do my internship there again in June.
Productive and fun place to work with a foosball table.
Engineer/Track Designer (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 28, 2016
Great co-workers, and excellent middle-managers and project managers who care about their team members and work being done. I have been exposed to a lot of interesting projects, and have had opportunities to work in client-facing roles beyond my experience level.
The executive leadership team feels isolated from the project delivery staff, and the company overall is very risk adverse. Career advancement is very rigid from a corporate perspective, but direct supervisors make good effort to put you in positions to excel and advance your career in the desired trajectory.
Good work-life balance, Opportunity to work on multiple projects
Project Administrator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 10, 2016
HNTB is one of the best places to work. I really enjoyed going to work everyday, I hate that I left this company to pursue other opportunity that didn't work out for me. My manager was the best person to work with.
Systems Integrator (Former Employee) – Kansas City – October 22, 2015
The more enjoyable part of working at this organization was working alongside people who were smart and innovative. The overall pace of this environment allowed for good work/life balance and opportunities for professional growth were available for those who were willing to take on new challenges.
Civil Engineer Technician II (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 18, 2015
If I could choose a company that was set up correctly, this would be it. I wish the job market didn't dump so quickly after I started working here, as I was laid off. This was some excellent experience and I'll always appreciate and lift this company up.
pay, managment, coworkers, work
at the time, job market laid off 6.7% of the company, including myself
Operator (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – September 5, 2015
Client only cares about appearance not performance. FDOT ITS manager and 2 HNTB employees are the main clique and always scheme to get rid of people. ITS manager used to work for HNTB and now for FDOT. The guy is trouble and is not liked by anyone except his clique. HNTB management has no backbone and will not care if you leave or get dropped from the contract.
great learning experience
salary, no advancement opportunities, continuous micromanagement by FDOT ITS manager
