Hill International
Vice President, Business Development Southwest (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ12 September 2017
Hill is currently undergoing great change as an activist investor group has taken a significant ownership of this public company. They won a majority of board seats in a proxy battle which resulted in the resignation of David Richter who's father was the founder of Hill.
The new management put a cost cutting program in place which resulted in the elimination of many non-billable emloyees at the company.
Pros
Great people at the local level
Cons
clients may see the firm in flux and this may make aquiring new clients more difficult

Good office atmosphere and Management
QA Engineer (Former Employee) –  Abu Dhabi25 August 2017
Salary benefits are excellent as well as site work conditions, accommodation, health insurance benefits, food and rotation schedule.Transportation is also excellent as we were given service cars for our travel to and from the site through to the Clinic extension.Hardest part of the job is to make progress for construction as we are tasked to complete the work for 4-5 bldgs. in 1 year but the Contractor`s manpower and materials are less than expected.

Renowned Construction Management
Construction Inspector (Current Employee) –  Broadview Heights, OH24 August 2017
My role as a construction inspector on a smaller project is not indicative of the company as a whole. That being said, the construction inspector is normally just a warm body to the company and this is especially true at Hill. Very little contact with direct supervisor and little room for advancement in the role as a construction inspector, primarily for those with goals of becoming project engineers.

An intesting job
Construction Inspector (Former Employee) –  Marlton, NJ2 April 2017
A good job and a good cause... urban forestry, but driving from NJ everyday $30 in tolls. Then they were kind of unfair about paperwork. Claimed you could do it on the job, but impossible to construction observe and do paperwork at the same time. Had to do it at night. Thus 16 hours a day work... paid for 8 hours. That's why they have gone through 300 employees for a 20 position in just 3 years.
Pros
Planting trees making the world a better place
Cons
16 hour work days but only paid for 8
