      I have been working at HDR full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Good match on 401K (matches up to 5%) and awesome health insurance. Great coverage at a good price. Everyone starts out with 3 weeks of PTO and it jumps to 4 weeks after 5 years of service. The company is growing rapidly and HDR is always competing for the most exciting projects.

      Cons

      Very big company, feels very corporate sometimes. Salary isn't quite as good as some competitors, but the health insurance and 401K match more than makes up for it and the salary isn't bad overall.

      Advice to Management

      Nothing as of now. Keep up the good work.
