Daily Work Life
Construction Technician (Current Employee), Round Rock, TXJuly 9, 2014
HNTB provides a very friendly and flexible work environment that makes going to work every day a pleasure. A typical day at work includes a lot of interacting with other team members, assisting with a variety of duties all for the purpose of delivering quality work that is on time, on budget, that is to the client's satisfaction. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is delivering quality work to our clients. It's very rewarding! The most difficult part of the job would probably be making the decision to leave. – less

Get experience here, then go somewhere else
Project Manager (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJune 10, 2014
Pros: great projects
Cons: disconnected and indifferent management, hostile and unfriendly culture
Yes, their project list is impressive. That said, the utter indifference management shows its employees and the atmosphere it creates will suck the air out of your lungs, particularly if you're not a PE or in a support service. These joyless people kill spirit and initiative. Without these, what do you have? If you must work here, get the experience – more... you need, get out and get on with the rest of your life. – less

Professional work environment
Project Controls Analyst (Current Employee), Santa Ana, CAMay 16, 2014
Pros: professional work-life and latest technology
Cons: engineering career focused
This has been a great company to work for. They are client based and dependent upon work to keep workers employed. The corporate office is less dependent upon project billing and provides more security. In the field or local office where work is generated, job security is less.

A good place to start you career...Management not so great...
Transportation/Traffic Engineer (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIApril 22, 2014
Worked there for 5 years and didn't enjoy it. I kept asking my supervisors for different, more rewarding work and they just kept telling me to stick it out and something will come. Company seems to care more about the money they bring in than the employees themselves. Management always seems too busy for the little guy...

They don't care about their consultants
Office Technician (Former Employee), Oakland, CANovember 15, 2013
HNTB wasn't a totally terrible company to work at, but they do not support their consultants at all in the field. I had 4 different managers in the span of 6 months.

Enjoyed my time. I would like to have continued here. HNTB found me temporary work after the initial project I was hired for was completed but I was unable to relocate at this time. Good company.

Upper Management is Clueless
Communications Manager (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOOctober 12, 2013
Pros: people...but they aren't there anymore
Cons: too many to mentiom
I work here for 14 years and it was once a great place to work but not anymore. Greed and Egos have taken over. Those who have not left are looking.

Enjoyed the work
Billing Associate II (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOOctober 2, 2013
Cons: no breaks, no communication with managment, no one to go to express concerns or problems
Very fast paced, high productivity, which I enjoyed. Management did not communicate with employees, did not care of the overload work responsibilities, did not want to listen to concerns or issues, if you did go to them with a concern they ignored you and if you were having a specific issue they just thought you were being "negative". there was no support – more... at all, So the hardest part of the job was dealing with management. – less

You only have a job as long as someone pays HNTB to pay you.
Technology (Former Employee), DallasAugust 8, 2013
Pros: can't think of any
Cons: see review
pretty testosterone-driven mercenary culture. If they can find some company to rent you out to, you will have a job with them. When this cash flow stops, you need to leave.

Good company for the new engineering graduate
Staff Engineer II (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIJune 12, 2013
The company can do a better job of making employees feel like part of a coherent team. Limited advancement for other engineering disciplines since project management geared towards traffic and transportation engineers. Yearly review process is also based on GE's forced ranking system , or differentiation curve which was designed by GE to obtain turn – more... over by getting rid of the bottom 10% theoretically, keeping the company innovative. This system seems skewed towards senior engineers having large pay increases and pits employees against one another in a pay for performance atmosphere. – less

If you like being unvalued and ignored, here's your dream job
Corporate Business Services (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOMay 10, 2013
Pros: good projects.
Cons: "culture of respect". yeah, right.
Revolving door supervisors, no annual reviews, contempt for my discipline from management. Sullen, hostile coworkers. Cold, lonely. Not an engineer? Then you're not $#**.

Web Engineer II (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOFebruary 18, 2013
The work environment is a great place to work. All of the fellow co-workers were always supportive and in a good mood. Management did their best to keep projects coming in. They also realized that everyone had a life outside of work.

Good pay yes, valued employee no
Na (Former Employee), KcmoFebruary 9, 2013
Pros: salary and benefits
Cons: management
Only work for this company for the good pay and benefits because they will not care about you, your future or what you have accomplished. You are completely disposable. The goal of this company is to make money for the men running the company.

Don't do it!! Apply for another position @HNTB
Project Accountant (Former Employee), ArlingtonDecember 13, 2012
Pros: great environment
Cons: mismanaged department
I recently worked as a contractor in this specific position in Arlington. What I will say is that upper mgmt meaning the VP's are very professional & good people to work for. HNTB seems like a good company, but you can forget about having an opportunity in this position if they keep the current manager in this area. In general the VP clearly obtains – more... good work ethics but it is not practiced down the pipeline. He among a few others outside this dept have created a great environment to work in.

In this position specifically there is a lot of turnover in the department. In 5 month period there have been at least 4 to 5 ppl. The manager over the department is horrible and creates a difficult atmosphere. She is extremely impatient, rude, & speaks to you as if you are a trash can. – less
