Great place to work
Great place to work. Salaries are on the lower side. Management cares and foster work/life balance. Promotions are based on merit and not time. Can be fast paced again times as work is client driven.

Not great
The work experience is decent. I don’t know many happy employees and there is an extremely high turnover. The starting salaries are bad and salary increases are worse. Bonuses get smaller each year. Also it’s very difficult to get reimbursement for furthering education. Overall a greedy company.

Good entry level company but not for sustained careers
There was a very apparent ceiling as far as career progression. Raises were typically rated against inflation only. Despite that the work can be interesting and the people there are easy to work and communicate with.

Pinchin Review
Its an okay place to work, the company is great my department has some issues. The company praises a "work life balance" but that is not actually how it goes in my department. Pay sucks.

Fast Paced, Technical Experts
For the most part my experience with Pinchin has been great. Work life balance is a constantly evolving thing with this company but I think that they are working towards making things better for staff on a national level. However, this is consulting work and as such, it can be really demanding when demands are high and new staff are being brought in. Consulting isn't for everyone. If you like constantly evolving problem solving and working with senior people to figure things out then this is a great place. If not, then it likely is not a good fit. As a junior staff person you stand to gain a lot of experience and information in a short period. Truly good staff do move up to higher roles.

Low pay and long hours
The work life balance could use a lot of improvement at Pinchin. Work is seen as more important than life. I do not think they understand that they pay low for an environmental consultant. I saw a lot of people get trained up, then leave for more money at another company.
Some great people work there, but overall, I'd suggest looking for another company to work for.

Advancement does not come easy, and lots of overtime is seen as a "perk".

On the plus side, there are a variety of projects to work on, and there is a possibility to learn, but it is likely that you will not advance quickly. A great place for someone that doesn't have aspirations.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Long hours, low pay

Fun place to work
Great company, not a proper management. Overall it's a great company. Supervisor always follow what staff do. Any email to project mangers and clients has to wait for her approval. She don't have trust on her staff.
Pros
Free lunch for meetings
Cons
Long hours

My time here has been fantastic. Most jobs have their ups and downs but the positives absolutely way out the negatives at Pinchin.

Decent place to work
Good place to work if your looking for a work life balance and make your own hours and control your own schedule. The culture in the office is great, very friendly staff.

Terrible for career driven people. i got 1 employee review in 2.5 years of working there and a $1.5 raise. despite working as much as i could and taking on as many projects as possible to stand out. complaints and concerns not taken seriously. A company ruined by terrible mid and upper managers. was told to find another job if i wanted a raise or promotion after 2 years of profitable service. so i did.
Pros
friendly staff, great culture in the office
Cons
mid and upper managers do not care about career advancement for employees

Confused Managemenet
too many changes in Building Science department all because of lack of communication and competency of higher management. People are taken for granted and can't find a way to advance in their careers.
The quality of work is good, but its not busy, so job security is weak.
