    I have been working at Morrison Hershfield full-time (More than 3 years)


    Opportunities to work on diverse and interesting projects. Culture is great, everyone is very collegial and there are opportunities to develop your career. The company has been growing over the past 4 years so there are plenty of opportunities for advancement. MH is an employee owned firm so it feels very tight knit but you have the support of a large firm. There are also opportunities to invest in the company and become a shareholder. Work/life balance is great, MH offers flextime and work from home options.


    Communication between project teams can sometimes be improved

    Advice to Management

    Remain employee owned. Expand pay-for-performance to lower bands

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Morrison Hershfield (Vancouver, BC) in December 2017.


    The interview process had 3 interviews, one phone screen interview with HR and two phone interviews with management and the technical team.

    Most of the questions were about my previous experiences and also to see if my expectations were in line of what the company is offering right now.
