Low stress environment
Civil Designer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 April 2017
It is a very relaxed company. The work load is generally quite low. This allows for good balance between work and family but it also means there is no room for advancement. There are no raises or promotions. There is little or no communication between branches in different cities. The Vancouver office can be drowning in work while the Calgary office is aggressively cutting staff. I am not sure how Hatch compares to other firms but it feels like the turnover rate is high. Few people stay longer than 3 years.
Pros
Good atmosphere and good people
Cons
High turnover due to lack of work and low pay

Excellent overall company culture
Senior Structural Engineer (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC9 February 2017
Excellent company, good organization, good possibilities for advancement,friendly environment, fair salaries.Possibilities to travel to many countries around the World.

A typical day is an eight hour day. But due to the company's concern and care of its employees, many employees would work overtime and on weekends without consideration of extra pay.

Management was careful to attend to its employees needs and concerns.

Work place culture was friendly and cooperative.

The hardest part of any job was to avoid failure.

The most enjoyable part of a job was to have it completed to the entire satisfation of the Management and of the Clients.

What I learned was above all the way human nature acts and reacts to circumstances.The possibility to travel to many countries around the World for the Company's projects enlarged and enriched my experience of Human Society and its varied cultures.
Pros
Stability and fairness
Cons
Promotions difficult in the Montreal office.

Technically capable company

Pros
Good rapport with middle managers
Cons
Career growth is limited/negligible if you are not engineer

Great place to learn and grow
Engineer-in-Training (EIT) (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 January 2017
There is a lot to learn from this company especially when you join as a junior. To help, advise, mentor and guide the young professionals there is also a group named YP group that hosts a lot of events which helps build a connection between the youth groups. It is a great company to work and learn from.
Hatch has a great work place culture and everyone is willing to help you if you are getting to know a project or your job. The management is also great that gives you great pay, vacation and benefits!

Hatch Coach Instructor (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 June 2016
Working at Hatch has been an amazing experience so far. Teaching kids programming is a great experience. I wish I had the opportunity to start learning when I was younger. But being able to give kids the knowledge of how to code is very fun. As the kids develop as programmers I also learn and gain ideas from them as well. It's a win-win.

I've had to familiarize myself with Processing language with the general idea of coding visual art. The management and colleagues are very understanding. Also, they are always determined to find better ways to improve the learning system to the kids.
