Great work/life balance at this company.

CEO only looks out for engineers.

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.
