Very low pay, Zero appreciation for jr staff members, no sense of social or team atmosphere
Jr inspector, geo tech (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 December 2018
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.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Many, no sense of teamwork, no ownership, little to no room for advancement

Good place to work. management is lacking, you will have to work out everything for yourself, total lack of support from supervisors. on a positive note. If you can handle working alone and enjoy driving a lot then its a good place to be

uncertain future
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC3 March 2016
We run full-steam ahead! Always on the go, with work piling up quickly. Learned to prioritize certain projects with time-sensitive issues versus last minute rushes and emergencies. Management .... we were recently purchased by an international company; many staff are uncertain of what the future holds for the company and their employees. Toughest part of the job is stress associated with making sure everything gets out in a timely fashion to suit the clients needs. And the best part is the employees and the camaraderie we share, getting the work done.
