Not the right place if you don’t want to be micromanaged
Worker (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 26 October 2018
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.
Summer hours, casual attire, a few good apples to work with
Micromanaged, management not easily approachable, favouritism
All time I worked on job site, no experience from MH Office life
Tunnel Engineer/Shift Inspector (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 November 2017
I was seconded to this Project by Morrison Hershfield Consultants who were part of this big project for TTC. I was very happy at this job place, all people were very much helpful, you were able to count on them all the time - like FAMILY atmosphere ...
Some Great Engineers with lots of experience, Management lacks vision and disconnected with workers
Engineer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 August 2014
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.
Great engineers and friendly staff
Management lacks vision, severely disconnected with the staff
civil engineering (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 27 July 2013
learned a lot of skills in this company and the co-workers were very helpful people. The hardest part of the job that was how I figure out the problem engineering? The most enjoyable part of that job was working in the site.
A very welcoming workplace that is eager to help you grow!
Administrative Assistant / Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 July 2013
I could not have asked for a better company to work for! Absolutely every employee and management alike were very personable and all worked for a common goal. We were all treated as equals and were very well compensated for our hard work.
Morrison Hershfield is a company that is eager to help you grow to your full potential. There was continuous training, and lots of room for advancements.
My typical day would include, but is not limited to checking and replying to emails, ordering supplies and speaking with venders, covering reception duties, shipping and receiving, and making travel arrangements for employees and senior executive members.
My main role was preparing for RFP's (Request for Proposal), and bid documents. I proofread and formatted all documents leaving the departments.
The hardest part of the job for me was saying "NO". I very rarely ever told a colleague that I couldn't help them get their project completed in time even on such short notice. I always managed to find a way to shuffle my work priorities to make sure no deadlines were ever missed.
I really enjoyed how busy I was! No matter what, there was something I could find to do, and there was always another department I could help!
enjoy working, fun team building exercises, good training
