    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 and a great office location.

    Cons

    Pay raises do not reflect work ethic, performance or seniority.

    Advice to Management

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

    I have been working at Hatch full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Hatch offers a great deal of opportunities in different areas and flexibility

    Cons

    Senior management continually falls short on recognizing strong performers within the company and as a result we have lost a lot of very good people.

    Advice to Management

    Hatch seriously needs to implement ACTUAL performance based recognition programs. Share offers, increases, bonuses and promotions are based on who you know rather than what you bring to the table. I’ve been part of far too many meetings and discussions with senior management where they frequently refer to the Yonge and St.claire days of Hatch and how good they were... they really need to move forward before competitors...
