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

    Pros

    Great place to work , great people, great opportunities to get on site and travel the world

    Cons

    Not a good place to advance your career, you will make a decent comfortable living especially if you are a shareholder however if you are looking to advance your career you are pigeon holed

    Advice to Management

    Retire some of the old management and bring in new blood to run the company, the industries dynamics have changed and Hatch is caught operating back in the 90's.

    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.
