    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay, somewhat flexible, nice people.

    You are punished for being efficient. If you do your task too fast and things are slow, then you get on indirect and risk getting laid off. Pressure to do site work.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    It's a good place to work and learn how and engineering consulting firm works. Overall good salary, lot's of team building activities, great workplace environment. People are always available to help if you need it.

    Cons

    The problem lies with the management, they don't really seem to care that much about their employees. They are not really proactive towards employees' workload issues and it's clear that it's not their priority. They seem to think that when problems arise, they'll solve by themselves. And higher you go in the hierarchy, the less they care.

    I worked at Hatch full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Hatch 10 years ago used to have many pros such as continued learning for employees, proper mentorship and personal growth. This changed in ~2016. Now I cannot think of many pros.

    Cons

    - performance does not matter and is not reflected in monetary incentives - many high performers are overlooked unless they are very vocal about it to management - HR does not deal with unprofessional issues properly - some managers really need to take courses on leadership - poor leadership transparency - compared to its competitors, they have the lowest pay for similar positions - no acknowledgment of company loyalty
