Anonymous support role (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 29 August 2018
Toxic environment. Very cliquish. No room to advance unless you become a favorite of senior management. Some staff (peers) are good people but are unhappy. Poor management and unorganized. Senior management talks behind your back to not only other senior management but also your peers. Very unprofessional. Watch your back and learn to “kiss up” to the right people. Becoming friends with anyone senior management doesn’t like will make you a target. Was overall a very negative and disheartening experience.
Christmas break using your vacation time
Took away civic holiday in August. Minimal or no raises, minimal or no bonus
Geotechnical Engineer (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 2 June 2019
Worked there briefly. During 1st week at job, I realized that this is no place to advance career and started to look for other opportunities. Most of the projects were under $5k with pressure not to charge any time to them. Most of the people were not courteous and jealous of my position. Discipline Manager was extremely rude and humiliation of employees was common, resulting in low morale and substandard work on projects. Career growth opportunities are very limited I am glad I didn’t have to work there for long.
