As any large company, it may be hard to stand out and a lot of the job quality depends on the team and management you get.

    Pros

    HDR is a top 10 engineering company. It is well run, profitable corporation, with excellent compensation and benefits packages. Core values of the leadership are ethical and professional. The company is employee-owned resulting in a strong work ethic and shared rewards.

    Cons

    The company weathered the recession, managing to the bottom-line by eliminating approximately ten-percent of its work-force. This wass done in multiple lay-offs and position eliminations, particularly for older, senior employees that were not fully billable, in areas where the recession hit the hardest . The positive spin put on this was that it created opportunities for younger, middle managers to move up and help with succession plan implementation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In most areas, the management should "stay the course", but separation packages and out placement services could be improved.

    Pros

    Lots of talented people. Entrepreneurial culture depending on where you are located. Ability to move around the company.

    Cons

    Lack of technology adoption and/or keeping pace with the changing times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure department managements are in sync with and/or working towards implementing the corporate strategic vision. Often times they are treading two separate paths leaving a lot of people in between left holding the bag not being sure about the direction.
