I worked at Golder Associates full-time (More than 3 years)
Really smart people and world-leading expertise in areas such as upstream mining, paste and geotech. Employee owned so more responsibility for company growth at all levels. Good values and some good leaders. I absolutely enjoyed working there and still keep in touch with former colleagues.
Focus on chargeability can add pressure. Short-term memory of past success. Some Principals and Associates are complacent and act like they own the place. Experience may be variable depending on office leadership. Maidenhead/Bourne End office was great and had good leadership although I hear the recent atmosphere is not as it used to be until c. 2012.
Advice to Management
Soft skills matter- some managers are technical people with little people management abilities. Think longer term and develop talent. Minimise knee-jerk reactions e.g. shrinking of teams.
