    Pros

    When ul b in Good books of Middle management offcourse its a good company for you to work here.

    Cons

    Middle management capabilities needs to be checked by top level. No leadership at all they are not at all understanding that you cant cut a branch on which ur sitting. For every company there are two face one who represents and one who compile and do every job. But these company simply dnt understand this concept.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Faithful + Gould full-time

    Pros

    Good reputation. Generally very professional and knowledgeable colleagues. Generally a decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Owned by SNC Lavalin so less able to make own decisions now. Often win very similar types of work so ensure its the sort of thing you are interested in. Office is often too serious, not enough fun and nobody really goes on socials or drinks if they are ever arranged so the social side to the office is really not great. Similar to other consultants you often work on tight fees but are also asked to go the extra mile. The two don't work in tandem when you're being told to limit time on jobs! Not very understanding of needing sick days, people feel pressed to return earlier than they should but that very much depends on your specific manager.
