Project Accountant (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – September 24, 2017
HITT is a large company that continues to grow with outstanding owners/leadership. As far company culture goes, they are very competitive, cut-throat and very fast-paced; you really have to prove yourself & work long hours to make it. Accounting management is poor, has disconnect with their project accountants & there's no trust.

Would have not resigned, but due to a personal injury at home, I made the choice to resign. I started as a lower position, but Hitt madenit easy to learn and gain the knowledge necessary to advance. I was able to secure a better position and increase my salary

Avoid at all cost. lies, untrusting and totally self serving, Employees doesn't matter. VP are totally clueless and bullies.Lie to Clients, claim they have experiences in various field but can't do any of it. Say away at all cost.
None i can think of.
Think of your worst experience and times it by 100.

HITT Contracting, is a great company to work for projects can be small service type projects or large 300,000 sf buildouts for the same client. HITT has amazing support systems in place for its Project Managers.

A typical days work is assisting the sub contractors in cleaning internal building.The work place is not diverse enough. The hardest part of job is driving to different sites most of the sites are long driving.
Data Integrity Specialist (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – May 27, 2016
Working for HITT Contracting as a temp for two years, I had a unique overview how the company ran from an upper management view.
For starters, once you officially start, you start without much hand-holding and are expected to do YOUR JOB without much issue. Sure you can ask tons of questions, but if you can not preform your duties you will be heading out the door very fast.
The company is split on whether it wants to stay family orientated or go more Corporate America. They are a growing company and your manager will value you if your a hard worker.
Lastly, the company does have a bit of an image and felt it not right to hire a temp who has been with the company for so long, instead, it would be better to have someone from college. What I can gleam from this is the company image wants to look young, and show that they get people straight from college and not that they need help like from a temp agency.
You can be on your own, but your always part of a team.
assistant project manager (Former Employee) – South Florida, FL – December 13, 2015
Work life balance is non existent. Management disconnected. The amount of hours that you put in is not worth the pay. Work load is too much. They squeeze as much out of you as they can. Lots of inter office gossip. As a result high turnover.

They are an alright company.They should look at some of the people that are in upper management. There are some internal problems that the Owners should stop and take a look at. Sometimes it should not be about the almighty dollar, but about the people that make the dollar for them.
High expectations for results and real opportunities
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 6, 2013
HITT provides excellent opportunities for those who are willing to work hard. The compensation can be good, but the job is very demanding.
Management suffers from a lack of forward vision, like much of the industry, preferring to avoid any real innovation when it comes to technology.
Good management practices are intended only as window dressing without any real substance, and the focus is put on professional relationships. For better or for worse this formula, combine with putting the client first in all accounts, leads to success.
Expect the same types of questionable ethics that the vast majority of general contractors utilize.
Excellent benefits and opportunities for promotion
