Bullying behavior dominates the culture
Senior Air Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Golden, CO – August 12, 2018
It is important for applicants to GHD to know that a typical day at the office involves doing your best to avoid the bullying behavior by management so that you can focus on your work. Engineering expertise, training and skills are so minimal as to be barely passable. The bullying seems to be a direct correlation to the lack of engineering skills, including the ability to communicate and collaborate as a team. HR and other managers do nothing to curtail the bullying.
If you take a job at GHD, don't for a minute believe that the people that you are working with are actually co-workers, in the congenial sense! Instead, just remember that you are totally on your own, because management, including HR, demonstrates expert skill at sowing division among staff. What I learned is that engineering skills and knowledge; the ability to bring in new clients; the ability to produce great work products for clients are not valued skills. What is valued is acquiescence to the bully. The atmosphere reflects this -- a tense, strained atmosphere prevails, and finger-pointing and chiding among employees are rampant. Tech support staff is great though.
Free snacks, good location, offices are comfortable and bright; tech support is great.
