I didn't have a great experience at GHD. If you don't have a bachelor's or above you're basically looked at as trash/uneducated. My manager made it a point to make it seem that way. I was written up by someone who wasn't management for not doing something I was not actually told to doin the first place. 👍 Great. If you're a hard-a** and seemingly privileged, this may be the place for you.
Pros
Lots of free food and coffee. With some freedoms. .
Cons
Management.

Great supervisors ! The best I've ever had the honor of working with. Must be able to work well in groups and on your own. If you can do that and show up on time you'll do great.

Local office management is fair, has employees backs, and spreads work out for the best outcome for local employees and clients.

Corporate methods suck

GHD has good depth and experience with Wastewater Design. The work environment was very professional. The difficult part was the changing corporate structure following the buy of Stearns & Wheeler by GHD.

The company may not be bad but the group which I was part of was not supportive and oppressive. There was no sense of socialization. Their expectation is not clear at all

A great place to start your career in this industry. There are some genuinely good people there, but in a state of transition and lots of negativity exists that sometimes can't be shaken.

Start early and finish by and home most of the time no later than 5pm. Most of the work is fairly easy and you learn quickly. For the most part you are rushed to complete tasks.

The best company I've worked for in over 20 years. They honor their safety policy! A company that cares about their employees, and management that knows happy employees make loyal employees.. This company inspires you to be the best you can be!
Pros
Management not afraid to get dirty, They won't ask you to do anything they can't do, have even witnessed the safety man dig ditches to help out.
Cons
Not a con for the company but layoffs due to mother nature.

Nothing bad at all to say overall about company but the way ive seen others and Myself treated by individuals is disgusting if u like other ppl to watch you work for 10-12 hours from their truck it’s the perfect job no one here is treated equally and it’s very time consuming and depressing

After long time of working for GHD. I’ve seen them lay off workers for 15 years and jee people that are less than a year. No matter who you are or how long you been there they see you as a number. This shows money before it’s people.
Please don’t waste your time growing here they will let you go now or 5 to 10 years. Raises are scarce

It's a good company , there's good job security for the work environment, as with all jobs it could definitely improve on a lot of areas within upper management .

Hours can be off and on, sometimes will have you travel to different job sites to keep you working. But will lay you off during the winter hours so you may have to collect unemployment or find some other part time job.

Upper management is vague, there has been little recognition in extra work being done, a handful of people are looking for new jobs. Salary is below average.

My boss is absolutely amazing. I've learned so much in a few days due to great leadership. Most importantly, this company focus on qualified and experienced hires from all ethnic groups, sex, religion, and social backgrounds. It is wonderful to be a part of a company that focus on your talent and education.
Pros
Diversity, professional growth and great salary
Cons
So far so good

Toxic culture because of toxic leadership.

Scapegoating and the blame game is daily occurrence and offices are losing employees are very high rates.


If you accept a position with GHD get your salary upfront because raises are non existent.

I had a chance to work with GHD on one project. The worst experience ever I had. Poor management, bad communication, lack of relationship with employees. Spying, collecting information, hostile environment....
