      Was great, now just another corporation

      Pros

      Well established consulting history with an impressive international foot-print, wide spectrum of clients, safety focused, employee owned company WAS something special as employees had a vested interest.

      Cons

      Downturns often result in mid and junior staff being let go, and then they struggle to find new staff when work comes in, very conservative approach limits offering, salaries not competitive, no longer employee owned so just another corporation...

      Pros

      I really liked the comp time policy Golder has. We were able to save up all chargeable hours over 40 and use them for vacation or get them paid out.

      Cons

      Golder has been acquired by WSP and there had been very little information we have received about our benefits changing.

      Pros

      Lots of work, Good balance of work depending on office, good pay

      You can tell which staff PMs favorite and give work too. Works the same for promotions and bonuses as well.

      Pros

      Friendly and positive work culture if you end up working in a good office/group.

      Cons

      No reward or bonus unless you pay to buy yourself company's stocks! All company's benefit goes to major shareholders at the cost of reducing employees' benefits (healthcare, salary, bonus, etc)
