Ok work place

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great place to start the first consulting job. Can learn solid technical knowledge under management, however will need to focus on your own work-life balance.

If you like working long hours, getting minimal pay and lots of stress. Then Golder is the place for you.

Golder is good place to get your foot in the door of the industry but that's it. I would never suggest anyone to start working there and here's why. Salary was minimal, raises are pretty much obsolete, no work/life balance, no organization, absolutely no employee loyalty, sporadic work hours, barley any training and the list goes on. I can honestly say that I've never worked for such a currupt company in my life. If you like working long hours, getting minimal pay and lots of stress. Then Golder is the place for you.


The odd time such would be provided.


Pretty much everything.

By far the worst place I've ever worked

Micro manged... Would even call my cell if I went to the washroom without asking. They tried to get me to come in after I had surgery (not work related) while I was short term disability. Constant intimidation an treats to fire if you don't do what they say. Kept trying to get me to work out of town ( upto 4 hours away), when that wasn't even mentioned in the interview. Upper management is horrible...constantly making employees cry , making them upset. Watched over my shoulder and made me chose and write answers for the 50 best company survey. What a joke... No wonder they made the cut when managment gets to fill out the survey instead of the employee.


Very safety oriented, decent pay


Micromanaged, intimidation, dishonest
