Featured Review

Current Intern - Engineering Intern

I have been working at GHD for less than a year

Pros

Extremely flexible schedules for all staff it is a gem of a company.

Cons

It is a large company but here in North America the engineering division seems to be unclear of long term intentions.

"Great firm"Apr 15, 2019

Current Employee - Senior Associate

I have been working at Charles River Associates full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The people! Everyone says that about their own company, but truly the people at CRA are great. Everyone cares about looking after each other, delivering a great work product, and continuous... improvement. Compensation is decent- salaries are at market rate or slightly below, but the bonuses are generous if you work hard. The internal infrastructure is solid allowing you to focus on the most interesting part of the job (the work!)

Cons

As is typical of consulting firms, the hours can be long and unpredictable.
