goog group of people
nice group of people to work with. Some of the long standing associates could be very crass and demanding at times. Often given very short deadlines and expected to stay behind to finish even if it was after hours .

Job Culture
Breakout area with table tennis table, good coffeee machine and lovely views
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

Terrible work place with very poor management
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 The management is extremely poor and the associate and principal system they have in place is very outdated and inefficient.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
Cons
Terrible management, very unfaithful to employees

Market changes
Started as a graduate here, with 2 great years, with a fantastic culture and where I felt I had opportunities for my career and personal development. The past 1.5 years have been hard and overall I have received negligible pay increases and dwindling work in the space I am interested in.
Pros
initial culture, young professionals group
Cons
lack of pay increase, lack of sustainability work
