A good learning experience
Good learning experience at Mcintosh Perry. I enjoyed the company of knowledgeable staff and seniors who helped me at each step. The management encourages you to learn more and grow as quickly as you can. They are very supportive.

A good company to start with
It’s hard to get into the company without a strong network for non-native speakers. The company is a bit of white oriented. However, you can find some really friendly people in the company. Their salary rate is low in comparison with the other competitors. You may hardly get a permanent position with benefits. Once you get the permanent position, the only things that might still bother you would be the rate.

Always changing environment with helpful colleagues
Colleagues were always available for any assistance needed. Teamwork is greatly needed to accomplish tasks as projects are team job, not a solo job. Many facets of the workplace does support the ability for individuals to be able to work on their own, but also open to the opportunity to work with others, which helps improve your ability to understand the job and material in a deeper matter.

Good place to work
Managers and co-workers are friendly and professional.

Cons: Temporary positions have little to no benefits, however. Managers promise not to lay off site inspectors during the winter season, but they end up doing it anyway. No job security.


Everything else is good.
Pros
Good hours, company has a lot of potential
Cons
No job security, poor administration especially during the hiring process

Thieves
They make millions on MTO jobs and pay peanuts to their employees.
People who were lazy we're offered full-time rather than people who work hard.

The only thing I liked working for them is I have worked under the contract administrators from whom I learned a lot.
Cons
Minimum wage, no advancement unless you know someone of higher rank working in the head office

Ok Place to work
MP is a good work place to work in a junior position. It is a good place to learn industry basics and provides exposure to a variety of projects and challenges.
The company provides lack of advancement opportunities and poor pay prospects. Advancements in knowledge opportunities are poor.

Company culture is not there.
Pros
Flexible Hours, Variety of Projects
Cons
Lack of knowledge shearing

Friendly environment; lack of timely communication.
Work was executed professionally. There was not much consideration for advancement and so there was no job security or communication of appreciation for work done nor performance evaluation.

Enjoyed my time with this company.
I was hired on a contract for the summer so I knew my position was temporary. I enjoyed my summer in Ottawa and everyone I worked with was very nice. If a full time position became available I would consider an offer from this company again.

Great team oriented work place
Although hours vary depending on the contract, this was a great place to gain experience within the engineering industry. Very team oriented.

I recommend this firm to anyone interested in civil engineering projects.

Great compnay, Greast people
A company that cares about each employee and has many opportunities to explore multiple areas within a specific or all departments.

Great people that take the time to teach co-op students and give a broad range of duties to explore each option.
