      Pros

      There are some great people there. They had some large projects. I gained some great experience.

      Cons

      Worked for CRA for over 20 years. GHD took over. I was going through chemo treatments, mother in hospital, dad had just died. They refused family leave. Told me if I didn't show up at least 30 hours a week I would loose my health care. Dirty bunch of people. They would sell you out for a nickel.

      Pros

      Growing US business with lots of opportunity for career development. Excellent general manager, service line managers, and local managers. Listens to employees through surveys, and open to employee feedback if you have the gusto to ask for things. Good mentoring program and experienced people are giving of knowledge and time. Employee ownership is becoming more accessible Genuinely good people who want to solve problems and provide client service Increasing knowledge and delivery of Design-build projects. Winning lots of work lately and the North America Wastewater Lead and water group business leader are extremely competent. Local office encourages YP engagement and provides funds to do fun things during lunch or after work like the ping pong club. Quickly adapted to remote work and have become more flexible.

      Cons

      Less than 30 percent of employees are shareholders and the shareholding program is not very accessible or transparent. The benefits and time off/holidays are average. Due to growth, procedures and tech systems are constantly changing and it's hard to keep up with the current way something should be done. Like many other companies, liability is a big factor for decisions, such as delayed return to office (covid). Local young professionals are relied on to lead morale boosting events and team building. Salary adjustments can leave some to be desired. QA/QC of design documents should be more extensive. Drafting team isn't very attentive to detail. No paid paternal leave.

      DO NOT WORK HERE AVOID AT ALL COSTS

      Pros

      If you enjoy a toxic work environment and no career growth than this is the place for you. Otherwise stay away from this company!!!!!!

      Cons

      This company does not care about you at all. The high turnover rate for younger employees shows that they do not care about the growth and development of their employees. The managers I had to work with were some of the most incompetent and abusive managers I have ever seen. They took micro-managing to a whole different level. Nobody has your back and you will get blamed for every little thing even if you do everything that your bosses and managers say. This place encourages a toxic work environment and will do nothing if you complain to HR about. STAY AWAY!!!
