Great place to learn because everyone is patient. Technical knowledge and expertise is really high. Very top heavy and because of that you are expected to be at work for longer than you have to just because it looks good and makes a good impression. Not very practical. Also, management does not care if there are enough people or not in the department to deliver the projects. They keep bringing new work but never expand the team.

Morrison Hershfield was a very positive and stable place to work. The employee owned culture helped make all staff committed to the Company's future. Over the time I was there, great improvements were made at a Corporate office level to make it easier for employees in several departments (not just technical staff) to buy in to the company.
Pros
Employee Owned
Cons
Opportunities for advancement in non-technical roles

I worked for Morrison Hershfield during the economic downturn in 2009. I was very impressed when top management from Toronto toured all the Canadian offices to calm the waters and assure that for the next quarter, no layoffs were planned. I had never experienced that before, and it certainly instilled a degree of loyalty to the company when better times eventually returned.
Pros
Good compensation / benefits package
Cons
none that i experienced

I worked there and sure there is a good portion of the people that are pleasant to work with and they do have their donuts and coffee Friday but.... I cannot believe how stressful it was always being watched & micromanaged it was and don’t think about leaving until the very last second of your day. Everything thing you do is noticed and if not by management there are coworkers that love to let your superior know if you have made any mistakes rather than address it with you. So to the last person who wrote their review you must have been in another department on another floor.
Pros
Summer hours, casual attire, a few good apples to work with
Cons
Micromanaged, management not easily approachable, favouritism

Overall MH has a great work/life balance, however, there is little opportunity to advance your career.

PROS:


MH is a comfortable working environment with flex hours and a standard work week of 37.5 hours.


Generally pleasant, respectful people to work with.


Industry standard benefits 80% coverage for medical and prescriptions. $500 allowances for Massage, chiropractic, acupuncture etc.


RRSP matching program.


Profit share program is quite minimal compared to other companies.




CONS:


Employee owned - less stringent standard on operational procedures, biased voting system to add new shareholders as majority of votes come from head office shareholders.


Little room for advancement, especially now since the company has many senior people with little motivation to retire.


Constantly reorganizing or restructuring which creates instability between departments.


Increasing office politics

Morrison Hershfield used to be a great company to work for. Staff are generally very nice and helpful. However since around 2012, the management's focus shifted dramatically, focus purely on profit (without much directions or vision). Many good engineers have moved on. Management for the most part is very disconnected with the staff. Emphasis purely on profit, and little on quality of work.
Pros
Great engineers and friendly staff
Cons
Management lacks vision, severely disconnected with the staff
