less company culture, poor management

"Great benefits"Aug 17, 2020

Former Employee - Project Coordinator/Contract Administrator

I worked at HDR full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great benefits for employees (RRSP match, good value on medical and dental benefits, option to buy company shares (DSU) that had performed very well, yearly increase per inflation, occassional bonus,... many company events), winners of profitable projects, multidisciplinary company in many parts of the world.

Cons

There maybe politics sometimes but I think in any organization there will always be. Its not too bad.
