Good experience for a short time
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC29 November 2017
For the short time I was there until they ran out of projects for me, it was a good experience and a learned a lot. Typical construction lunches with subs and clients. Direct manager was a good mentor. Higher ups had other things on their minds.

high payment but very poor management
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 July 2017
The salary paid by Bird is pretty nice and has a lot of benefits. However, the management team is doing a terrible job on site. The deadlines for project are always postponed. Even though u are a permenent employee, the job is still not fully secured.
Pros
good benefits and high salary
Cons
lack of management and insecure job title

Great work environment
Journey carpenter (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB29 March 2017
I really liked the supervision and the work environment. I did find the mass size of the site at Fort Hills and the lack of a proper tool crib made it very hard to be productive at times. Many hours are spent walking around looking for tools and materials to complete the task . How ever that was not the case at Kearl lake where every tool didn't was available and in good working condition. Supervision at Kearl lake was very organized.
Pros
good company to work for.
Cons
camp life

It is a Jungle
Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB16 November 2016
No work life balance - Don't make you loyal at all - paying as any other company.
Management don't listen to you ... just hurry and running with no room for any improvement.
