Breakout area with table tennis table, good coffeee machine and lovely views
Senior CAD Draftsperson/Technical Illustrator (Former Employee) –  St Leonards NSW18 September 2018
This company is productive and innovative, with lots of diverse engineering disciplines. I enjoyed working for this company, and made a lot of friends. The culture is one of mutual respect and teamwork.
My day began with coffee and a quick reassessment of deadlines. Chargeables were measured in 15 minute intervals, and I averaged 30 - 35 chargeable hours per week, often working back to achieve this.
I relished the challenge of presenting analytical data, survey plans, geotechnical cross sections, civil design, mapping, EIS, whatever was necessary. I enjoyed the satisfaction of contributing to a team outcome, and being responsible for my own quality input. There was a huge volume of work, and I was busy every day.
Pros
Trust, fascinating industry

Golder is a horrible place to work at. The management is extremely poor and the associate and principal system they have in place is very outdated and inefficient.
Pros
Hardly any
