Geotechnical Engineer (Former Employee) – Ontario – 10 January 2018
Golder used to be a great company to work for. Now it feels like you are a number with a sole purpose of making the company money. The company culture is "make money, make money, make money". It's draining. Training is now non-existent. Benefits were recently cut. Pay is now below standard. Things are still constantly changing.
You can find worse companies, but I had to leave for something more stable and healthy for my psyche.
Golder is going through turbulence - fasten your career seat belt !
Geotechnical Engineer (Former Employee) – Canada – 8 November 2017
Used to be a great company, but things changed in a way that is not in the best interest of an average employee particularly new employees. You have to be 100% chargeable and yet there is no appreciation. If you are down a few months then you are out the door, is it professional? or purely business? Everyone is struggling to meet his/her chargeability.

former geotechnical engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, Alberta – 25 November 2012
It is in a mess. There is one big name and the rest is empty. This is not a place for professional growth. This company is for the principal, by the principal and the rest of the staff has no say, no value, no recognition.
big name, worldwide presence
poor management, does not recognize talent, do not care about employee professional growth, no or little mentorship
