Environmental consulting review

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Pretty typical for consulting. Overworked and underpaid. Like pretty much anywhere else, your coworkers are great but that is one of the only redeeming factors. There have been multiple acquirements of other consulting companies over the last couple years so multiple mergers has bogged a lot of day-to-day processes down and created a lot of contract issues. Also trying to eliminate full remote work..I will say that the types of projects here compared to other companies are much more interesting and as far a field work goes there's a lot more variety.


Interesting projects, good coworkers.


Poor benefit package, low pay, poor work-life balance

Énorme compagnie avec ambition mondiale. Communication entre disciplines et/ou équipe de projet déficiente, mais dépend d'un projet à l'autre. Avantages et salaire dans la moyenne.

This company make you feel you hit the jackpot ..until you realized it is just a beautiful apple with worms and poisson inside.Very disappointing environment.You'll deal here with a lot of drama Queens and Kings with huge egos. Don't recommend.

Environnement TOXIQUE.

Entreprise qui se vante beaucoup, mais qui n'a aucun respect envers l'humain. L'argent est leur priorité. Les minorités sont sous-payés et c'est une belle gang de corrompu. La fraude eux, c'est leur essence. Environnement TOXIQUE menant au suicide d'un collègue de travail.




Pas grand chose.

Severely below industry average pay

Pay schedule needs to be recalibrated. Great coworkers. Good opportunities to move around the company but really depends on your manager. Would recommend to someone who is just starting their career.

Good not great

Pay is at or slightly above industry average. Benefits are below average I would say when considering employee contribution amount. Great team in BC, lots of mentorship and well rounded technical disciplines. Good job stability.

Lots of Learning Opportunities with Flexibility

Great place to work. Good pay, good people, lots of learning opportunities. Loved getting to travel and seeing different provinces. Management is fair and understanding.

Great environment

Great place to start career in the transit industry with lots of projects going on. The people are always willing to help as well and management is focused on your growth.

A lot of driving to different test sites. Management loves to micromanage. Every day is mostly the same testing, I got bored quickly from doing the same testing. All the testing requires only 1 person so it is tough to carry and lift heavy equipment by yourself.

Nice place to work

A large and multinational company provides plenty of training and supports to you. The workplace culture and management is nice as there will be activities and courses all the time

Great company devoid of great leadership

Will not recommend for anyone looking for career growth in the shortest possible time. However, you can achieve growth if you can play negative politics on your coworkers with senior leadership team.

Great coworkers, average pay, stressful work

The company has a lot of talented and wonderful people, the work environment between employees is professional and people treat each other well. I would say a big issue lies with upper management, they pretend to care about your happiness, well-being, and the quality of work but they don’t, they care about making money and if that means they can squeeze a person to the brink and forego providing proper resources to get jobs done properly, they will. Upper management needs to pay attention to building high functioning, organized, and well resourced teams. The company is huge but sometimes it can feel like you’re working for a start up because you’re just trying to figure out how to make a project work without adequate resources, staffing, process support, and senior talent. Turnover is high.

Safe workplace

Safety is the top priority. Team work. Easy to ask help. Full of passionate, intelligent professionals with a clear intention on providing the best quality of work to every client. Engaging, interesting, and enjoyable work in many different fields.


Long hours especially summer season

Large company with access to a lot of experts in their fields

Opportunities to work on a wide variety of projects, however it can be easy to get lost in the shuffle in a company this large. Benefits keep getting worse as the company gets larger.

Good department

Each department at WSP is different, but I had a great experience in my department with a supportive manager. You do have to have a good manager that pushes the higher ups for raises.

big consulting firm

big consulting firm comprised of several smaller firms - grown very quickly and has a disjointed culture with internal inefficiencies combining all these large firms into one.

Not that great!

Underpaid. Working environment isn't for everyone. Work life balance is dependent upon your team and mostly the company is under staffed. Most of the employees I have known were trying to find better opportunities.

High turnover

When company busy, they will hire you, but layoff you when project did not come out and they want to save money without any reasons. Pool management style with too many coffee chat

Underpaid and Overworked EIT

I was part of Golder Acquisition. Employees make the company and work environment, I've never seen the quality of work go to down the drain so quickly as Golder staff started leaving. WSP upper management doesnt care about employee retention, priority is stockholders>employees. WSP's own PMs are short sighted and don't work with the team, chasing budgets and bad proposals which pressures the Juniors. I have been told to not charge 14 hour days even if I've worked been on site that long. Half the team has resigned and found better jobs/better pay/better environment. Half my paycheck goes to rent. Great if you're just starting out as they will hire anyone due to staffing issues but after they train you, you can leave for better oppurtunities and better pay. Running joke in the team is that WSP is a revolving door.


Golder team provides great training but they are all leaving


Unaffordable to work for WSP, revolving door.
