Not pleased
EIT (Former Employee), Sudbury, ONJanuary 30, 2016
Pros: Pay came on time
Cons: Horrible for career advancement, learning is at a minimum
I'm not pleased after working at this organization for 4 years. I don't feel like I've grown in my position. My repeated attempts at requesting for technical work were ignored until the time came when I was no longer needed for their petty work and was laid off with not even a second glance.

Over priced and under skilled
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee), MississaugaNovember 20, 2015
Pros: Non come to mind......
Cons: Nepatism, bad engineering, over priced
Work enviroment is very political. CEO and upper managment are to busy planning parties and dinners for clients.
They have let go over half of there skilled engineering staff over the last few years and replaced them with 1st year engineering students who lack the skill sets to perform designs they are being assigned,
Nepatism is a huge problem there but seems to be the norm when hiring any staff.
Loss of work and no new business over the last few years mostly due to over pricing and bad enginering.
They are currently in the process of rebranding the company to try and stay in business.
Most of the clients I work with feel that Hatch is over priced for the products they are engineering and deliver.

Senior Mechanical Layout Designer (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONOctober 2, 2015
Pros: Lot of opportunities to learn
Even when it is a wonderful company with a lot of benefits, it lacks a good communication culture that allow employees to get more involved with the current project. there are a lot of politics as with all big companies, but it might affect sometimes the performance and final quality of the work done.

A company that is changing
Administrator/Project coordinator (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONSeptember 26, 2014
Pros: good benefit pkgs
Cons: long hrs
Daily tasks to accomplish, scheduled projects.
I've learned all project cycle and was able to work for most of my career with great smart people that contributed to my knowledge.
The latest part of my job had lots of different manager, hence very little and poor leadership and direction. The hardest part of my job was to balance the uncertainties of no direction.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the daily interaction with my peers and the challenges. To see result of work done.

They were a good company, but a lot of mgmt changes now.
Electrical Engineer (Former Employee), Greater Sudbury, ONJuly 30, 2014
hatch was a decent company. Fast advancement and lots of technically challenging and good work for many years. Now they are a lot larger, advancement is slower unless you're someone's golden child, and over the last 2 or 3 years there have been a lot of management changes that have departed from the company's 50+ year history and corporate culture.

Not much job security anymore, and the company is becoming more like its competitors. I'm happy to have gotten laid off for lack of work after 17 years with them.
