Senior Engineer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – March 6, 2016
Hatch is a decent company to work if provided you have good connection with upper management. People are promoted and praised based on their personal connection with upper management. Senior management has no regard to committed employees and all they care of is who knows who in the organization. People are promoted for their personal connections irrespective of their performance within the company.
Location and flexibility of work
Senior Management has no regard to hard working, committed and loyal employees, They only care for those who have connections and personal affiliation with upper senior management

Hatch Coach Instructor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – June 8, 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.
Project Support Coordinator (Former Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – March 16, 2016
At this job I managed a lot of documents in a short turnaround time. This job kept me really busy and I learned computer skills. The management was very friendly and open to any questions I had about my work load. The hardest part of the job was my heavy workload, but that was also the most enjoyable as it made the days go by very fast.

Hatch is a very friendly, goal oriented atmosphere to work in. Projects will start on a proper schedule with enough resources and most of the time. Balance of strength in diffrent disciplines would create issues.
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) – Mississauga – November 20, 2015
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, ON – October 2, 2015
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.
EIT (Former Employee) – Sudbury, ON – January 30, 2016
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.
Pay came on time
Horrible for career advancement, learning is at a minimum
The projects I worked on stretched me to my limits. Before, I had worked on P&IDs that were not intelligent, but Hatch had integrated their P&IDs with DataManager. They had thought out the whole process and their project delivery was flawless. They had the best IT support staff that was worth their weight in gold. The whole process was well thought out and the projects were able to advance without any problems.
IT support excellent
Gaining a little weight from all the good restaurants near the office.
