"I found HDR in Folsom to be an excellent company to work for. It was a company large enough to have the resources needed for any project. I have a lot of respect for the managers in Folsom, especially the Manager of the Civil Design section."

Senior Structural Engineer

What do you like about working at HDR?

"The atmosphere at HDR was always charged with energy and excitement. I loved the position I had there and the work I was doing. There were plentiful extracurricular activities planned for employees that allowed us to get to know our coworkers in an out of office background. The company encouraged personal professional growth."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you do accept a position at HDR do not place loyalty to HDR over your own personal growth and benefits. This company will drop anyone at a minutes notice and will give no warning."

What don't you like about working at HDR?

"I was quite disappointed at the way I was let go from the company. The week after I finished a 2 year design of a hospital I was called into the section manager's office and told I was being laid off due to lack of work. No allowance was given for the hundreds of hours of overtime I had donated to the company or the fact that I was uniquely knowledgeable about many design desisions and subsystems of the building that would require further coordination and design."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Have more respect and compassion for your employees during the slow times. At previous companies where I have worked we were informed months in advance of the state of the work flow and people were warned if they were in danger of being laid off so they could begin their job search. HDR lays off employees with no warning and immediately locks them out of all company systems and escorts them from the building like criminals."

"I have worked at HDR for nearly 3 years, the employee ownership culture is infectious and simply awesome. The company is run well and offers plenty of flexibility. There is regional leadership that can drag things down at some times due to insufficient communication but that is certainly not a deterrent to the growth of the company."
