Contract Specialist (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – March 5, 2018
I worked here for 6 months. Management involvement was minimal, training was subpar and the team I was a part of wasn't open to outsiders joining their group. The Momma hen mentality needs to go, and every voice matters. The organization needs to set up a training program for new employees that is quality and is mission and organization oriented. The training I was given was definitely grade school quality and there were no tools or resources that helped me perform better.
The salary for a contract specialist is well below the industry standard and there are no certifications that are necessary. This is no way to develop a CS specialist cadre with quality and certified credentials.
I would never go back because I felt like an outsider the entire time I worked there. There was no cohesion unless you were one of the old timers or a backside kisser. Management needs to get involved instead of sitting in their office all week and only showing up on a Friday at 3
Free lunches every so often, cool building
Severe lack of training and poor management involvement, inflated job titles
Structural Engineering Intern, Bridge Group (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – January 25, 2018
all the other engineers were super supportive and had a great voice for teaching and mentoring me to be a better engineer. I learned a lot about the process of bridge design and got some good hands-on experience with design and inspection.
not great variety in work, depends on what jobs they get over the summer
The best part of working at HNTB was the trust and autonomy they invested in you. Next was the amount they spent on training you to fulfill your obligations to yourself and to your client. A typical day at work for me would involve either working on design problems for projects at hand or assisting with getting new projects into contracts. Workplace culture was very collaborative and cooperative - it was normal for people to work across office boundaries, whether instate or between states.
