Construction Inspector II (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – November 19, 2018
Enjoy working with different people on job sites. Must be willing to travel in state and out of state for work on highways and bridge construction. Not always able to get home more than every 2 months. Pay and benefits are good and it is an employee owned company that you are able to buy stack in.
Archaeologist (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – November 2, 2018
I worked briefly in the field as an archaeologist. Found work too physically demanding and was injured on the job. Was provided with first rate workman's comp and proved not to need treatment. Was switched to editing and writing by my supervisor but was laid off when higher level personnel took over all such duties. HDR seems to be a good company, but I couldn't work there due to physical limitations.
I was assigned for a very short time to complete an on-going project. The job ended and I expected to move on to other projects.
Field Inspector (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 6, 2018
I really enjoyed working with the company for the time I was employed. They had the right organizational structure & size for a construction management company. At the end of the project I worked on (closeout) no one from management or HR asked me to come in for re-assignment or to state there was no more work available. I had to go into the office and tell them the job had completed and had not heard from any one about re-assignment -so after a few days I received a call that I would be laid off permanently.
Marketing and Communications Manager (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – August 29, 2018
HDR was a great place for me to work, but then there are many HDR offices around the country, and even in the headquarters in Virginia, where I worked, there were so many individual divisions, each with its own unique mix fo management/personality styles, that it's impossible to give an overall rating. Having said that, the corporate culture, in general, was a productive one conducive to great work.
Very organized, great staff of knowledgeable individuals. The Benefits were great, the pay competitive. Great working environment. The Upper management treated everyone with respect and one felt at home.

Every day was a challenge.There was a lot of driving to many different sites in North Carolina. Worked with people from all over the country. There was a lot of seasoned experience and we always had plenty of help.
Enjoyable work environment and culture, interesting project work
Water Section Manager & Client Development Lead (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 6, 2018
HDR is an excellent company that I enjoy working for. It has grown significantly since I started and the bureaucracy is starting to catch up, but it's a good company with a good culture and good people to work with.
flexible schedule, interesting projects
heightened focus on utilization, variable compensation among peers
Receptionist/ Administrative Support (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – August 2, 2018
The best part of this job was the people and clients who became my family. The hardest part was leaving the way they did it. 'Sorry your job is eliminated, pack up and we will escort you out' 10 minutes later you are gone! Corporate Culture......
