Great people to work with. Nice company to work for. Bad culture.
Data Services (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON3 January 2018
This company is a part of a very niche industry. Interesting to learn about the industry and the technology associated with it. As a result it takes a while for any new employee to truly contribute in a unique way. However, once that knowledge and skill is developed, you begin to feel like a part of the team.

Majority of the work force is full of very hard working people. So if you find yourself working a little extra, it is nice to know that you are not alone.

Currently the management is in disarray from all the changes that are going on in senior management and the other operation companies that are all under the Fugro name.

There is a push for "Lean management" in the company. A push for constant improvement. Essentially to be able to do more with less. However, this has not been going over well with the majority of the employees who are more and more feeling like the company is just trying to get away from hiring the resources it needs in order function with more needs.
Pros
Donut Friday, flexible hours, helpful peers.
Cons
negative atmosphere at times. Management does not change status quo. Very low pay.

Contracted position
Geotechnician (Contracted) (Former Employee) –  Kearl Lake, AB21 March 2015
Worked for the Fugro in a contracted position. Pay was excellent, however it required me working away from home for up to 2 weeks at a time. While at the job site I would ensure that steel pipe piles were installed to engineering specifications (depth). Work on the project was a 24 hour a day operation and shifts were 12 to 13 hours long.
Pros
Excellent wage, transportation paid for
Cons
Long hours and time away from home
