Very low pay, Zero appreciation for jr staff members, no sense of social or team atmosphere
I worked for GHD for a little over 2 years. There is little to no recognition for going above and beyond the very mundane tasks given to jr staff. Because of this, advancement within the company feels unlikely. There is extremely little to no interaction with upper level managment, resulting in employees feeling secluded and under appreciated. The workplace environment would be ideal for someone who enjoys working independently while being around other people. My time at the Missassuaga, Ontario Office was overwhelmingly difficult due to the constant language barriers. My direct superiors didnt know my name and called me the wrong name for the first 3 months. It was very difficult to have pride in your work and show pride of ownership in this atmosphere. The entire lab space was consistently a mess and unsafe; a result of poor management and zero sense of ownership and pride felt among staff. I do not recommend this company to anyone. My experience led me to leave industry.
Many, no sense of teamwork, no ownership, little to no room for advancement
