    I worked at Summerhill Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Get to work on some great environmental projects with some absolutely fantastic, passionate people. The projects allow you to make a tangible environmental difference.

    Cons

    The CEO is shortsighted and vindictive. She has a need to micromanage things poorly, and I don't know that anyone has worked with her directly for more than a year without quitting. They like to underpay and withhold rewards from inexperienced staff.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get rid of the CEO. She is absolutely toxic and has no business within this industry let alone in this company. Get rid of her before you lose even more quality staff.

    I have been working at Summerhill Group as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I LOVE this company to work for! They have such a great staff and everyone communicates well, whenever there is questions they are always just a phone call away. Thanks so much for having me back each contract for team lead :)
    I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    It's contract work :( Would be nice to have full time or perm part time.

    I have been working at Summerhill Group as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good reputation, several offices across Canada.

    Cons

    Very reactive organization, with little foresight into the results of decision making. Culture of entitlement, with no accountability taken by staff. Responsibilities of the office staff frequently overlap, resulting in communication problems and frustration for the Field Representatives. Promised a variety of incentives which do not get delivered.

    Field representatives are treated like second class citizens, with a "guilty until proven innocent" approach to problem solving. Very poor communication among the office; and to the field representatives, which results in constant micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Create clearly defined responsibilities for office staff, and hold them accountable.
