      I have been working at Hatch full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Engineering part of company works on interesting projects that IT sometimes gets pulled into.

      Cons

      No procedures, no tools. Management doesn't really understand devops or devops tools. Way too much politics all the time.

      Advice to Management

      Learn how to run an IT organization! This was a horrible experience and I couldn't wait to leave.

      I have been working at Hatch full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Great company to work for overall. Flexible work schedule and breaks etc. Great resources and available software/hardware and technology. Good IT support. Great office location.

      Cons

      Pay raises sont reflect work ethic, performance or seniority.

      Advice to Management

      Reward your key, longtime employees with better annual wage increades and bonus based on performance. There are people that work 10 times harder then others and have been there many more years and still make less.

      Pros

      Company gives good exposure to different projects, good engineers and subject matter experts, overall a good place to obtain engineering experience.

      Cons

      Biggest con is the business model, based on private equity that's supposed to go to high performing employees. However most of the time the shareholders are people that either know or have worked with upper level shareholders. No real process outlining how to obtain shares, creates unnecessary office politics and cliques of people within the company. Company culture is also very uptight and is reluctant to embrace...

      Advice to Management

      You pride yourself in having the best engineers, this is one of your mantras. Please ensure that your engineers are getting compensated fairly, for what they are actually worth.

      I worked at Hatch full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Friendly environment, free parking, safety culture

      Cons

      Management leads you on with the promise of interesting work, doesn't deliver. Easy to sit back and do the same old easy stuff year after year never growing or developing into anything better. Shocking to see how much better other companies are once leaving Hatch. People really live in a bubble at Hatch.
