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.

Great place to work with laid back environment
Credit Specialist (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON6 July 2015
A very laid back environment with kind and understanding management would highly recommend to anyone who wants a career in engineering. A little less life work balance for finance staff but still a great place to work and very flexible.

The hardest part of the job is the self traning requirement but eventually everybody figures out what they have to do and how. A great place to work on the whole.
Pros
Flex hours
Cons
Working from home or late

Great team to work with, learned a lot.
Engineering Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 April 2015
GHD is a design and consulting firm specializing in electrical and civil engineering.
Working as an Engineering Assistant has exposed me to the various experiences associated with the design of hydro systems and streetlight distribution.
The employees at GHD are highly motivated and eager to help. Everyone has an idea of what their responsibilities are, and disputes are handled in a civil manner.
Since this is a consulting firm, our team will have to win contracts for design projects. There are times when there is a lack of work to do since there are no pending tasks from the clients, and sometimes the workload will be difficult to handle.
The most enjoyable part of this work experience was interacting and learning from employees, and table tennis
