    I have been working at Golder Associates full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company has an office in pretty much all the major cities in the US, and it is not difficult to transfer between them if one wants to seek new challenges. Being a multidiscipline company, Golder offers the opportunity to gain experience in different industries and to be a part of fairly unique projects

    Cons

    Very low employee recognition. Salaries are very low compared to all competitors of similar size. Golder does not promote the growth of key personnel. Managers and supervisors are rarely capable of identifying and promoting talent and stick to a very limiting career framework. For an employee owned company, we, the shareholders, get little in return.

    Advice to Management

    Even though the business is now managed in a better way, the success of this company (like in all companies) relies on their employees. Take care of your employees! Pay them at a minimum market salaries, recognize their efforts, institute a culture of advancement and innovation, and please remove the people that do not believe in the new ways from managerial positions. Our careers are being managed by non-believers!!

    "NO longer a good place to work"

      Current Employee - Accounts Payable Specialist in Atlanta, GA

      I have been working at Golder Associates full-time

      Pros

      ability to work independently without micromanaging

      Cons

      Used to be a good company to work for but has went down hill. They no longer care about or value their employees. The changes in management caused a lot of disorganization and turnover.
