    Pros

    This review is for the Vancouver office

    Advice to Management

    Please keep putting on all the great events you do. It makes such a big difference to work at a company with a great culture. Keep hiring good people and fight for higher wages for existing employees.

    I have been working at Hatch full-time

    Pros

    - Opportunities to actively contribute to various engineering projects which enable a junior/intermediate to grow technically
    - Recently the company has been recognizing the importance of retaining intermediates and is making an effort to listen to some of the reasons why people are moving on
    - Employee owned company so great if you have shares
    - Flat corporate structure so you get to interact with management and seniors on a consistent basis

    Cons

    - The company paradigm is shifting towards more EPCM projects, but not totally there yet. So a lot of the projects are engineering design scopes. They are strong in designing so I suppose that can be a pro..
    - It seems that managers/leads have a pretty good amount of autonomy which at times means that you have to make an effort to learn from and connect with Hatch members outside of your region.
    - Senior management says the right things but after a while it sounds like the same message..
