    I have been working at Golder Associates full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great career development program. Great benefits and growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Working with people who do not always look out for the good of the company. Because it was not a publicly held company many shareholders felt they were entitled to top notch services and wide open expense accounts.

    Advice to Management

    None to offer.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Golder Associates for more than a year

    Pros

    Location was perfect for me. Very busy, typical engineering office.

    Cons

    If you can get past the psychotic office manager, who has NO patience whatsoever and is a horrible trainor/mentor; then you will be in with an established, well known company in the engineering industry.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully you do not have the same (short blonde? hair) office manager.

    Great people, good pay, employee owned

    Listen to employees more, concentrate more on training younger employees to take over for retiring employees

      I worked at Golder Associates full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Decent pay and decent benefits There used to be an amazing group of people working there. I'm sure there's still a few left.

      Cons

      Very little career development. Expect little to no support from your management team. a very dysfunctional workplace CEO talks a big talk but in the end they just don't have the business anymore There's next to no loyalty. Expect to invest years only to be let go as soon as they have extracted anything of worth from you If you're going to take a job here, have an end game in mind and get out as soon as you can

      Advice to Management

      I can't think of any advice to give to such a corrupt and unethical group of people You've been fooling yourselves for far too long you should know better

        I worked at Golder Associates full-time for more than 9 years

        Pros

        my anger prevents me from coming up with even one positive thing to say about Golder

        Cons

        After working in one location for over 6 years, I volunteered to move to a small town to open and operate a new office for Golder. I even bought a home in the small town as I was told repeatedly "if it doesn't work out then we will move you back to your original location and if you have to sell your home for a loss, we will reimburse you the difference", well 2 years later I got a surprise visit from one of the Associates...
