    TOJ, Staff Up, Reduction in Force

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Baton Rouge, LA (US)

    I worked at HNTB Companies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great national reputation as a design firm in the transportation market

    Cons

    This company is completely and totally obsessed with profits. For an employee owned company, I have never seen so many layoffs in my decade long career. Work sharing is also horrible. You could have an employee laid off with a rec open for that same position. No infinitive to work share. Every office is its own business unit. Literally, I have seen engineers hired and released within a year due to work load and projects ending. Experienced 5 layoffs in 10 years, including one 3 months after I was hired. Also, all officer level positions filled from outside. Very few officers get there organically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work share, and stop being obsessed with TOJ. Junior level staff should not be beaten down with TOJ every day. Also, not good seeing all office leadership hired from outside. Hire good people and bring them through the ranks. Maybe it is because no one stays around long enough to become an officer. It is a huge slap in the face to spend 10 years with the company and see someone hired from Timbuck Two as an AVP or VP. No company loyalty.

    Pros

    best projects, best clients, great staff

    Cons

    short term outlook - month to month management, the need to only have the biggest and best projects makes us pass on many smaller opportunities that could sustain in between the big ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    play the long game and communicate
