    I have been working at GHD full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some great people work in the Brisbane office, really good technical capability and excellent projects, fun team dynamic in some teams. Flexible working arrangements and gender and cultural diversity, inclusivity, are not just buzzwords they are starting to be realised at the brisbane office.

    Cons

    Overworking yourself is encouraged and is a part of the culture unfortunately. “Build your personal brand”. Shareholders looking after shareholders during covid19 with dividends paid despite juniors being forced to take leave without pay :( environmental “commitment” is toothless. Embaressing to have to walk past adani protesters everyday for 3 months when you thought you were working for a progressive company.

    Pros

    Good opportunities provided you have proven yourself as valuable and there’s actually current projects to work on. Good environment and team cultures and great people to work with, flexible working arrangements.

    Cons

    Slow progression, low pay. Frustrating for less experienced staff if there’s lack of work. Could just be the nature of consultancies and current climate though.
