"I am grateful for all the support for my consistently professional developments and upcoming opportunity. I love working with a team to achieve a common goal to provide value to the community by being fair and efficient in solutions.
What it’s like working at one of the most dynamic consulting firms, here are some of them:
- Diversity of professional experience
- Diversity of people you work with
- Freedom to be creative
- Sense of accomplishment by end of day
- Possibility of remote work
- 4 days of work
- And much more
At MSR Solutions, we dare to innovative design and our mission is to bring inspiration and innovation.”
"I started at MSR just over 7 years ago and there are a number of things that have factored into me wanting to build a long-term career with this company. We are a small, employee-owned company, which offers us a lot of freedom and autonomy to make decisions based on what we as employees feel is best, a flexibility that is not always enjoyed in larger companies with public shareholders. Another benefit of being a small company is that nobody is pigeon-holed into specific roles, staff have the opportunity to work on a wide range of tasks. This variety keeps the work fresh and engaging, and also provides staff with valuable experience as they build their careers. We have a long list of active projects and in 7 years I’ve never felt like there wasn’t something to do, which really helps make my work week enjoyable and fulfilling (there is nothing less inspiring than watching the clock with nothing to do).
Our company values taking an innovative approach and is willing to tackle difficult projects. I have the opportunity to be creative and to actually apply the knowledge I’ve learned in school and in my continuing studies, making this job intellectually fulfilling. Our company has built positive relationships with a variety of clients, contractors, consultants, suppliers, regulators, etc. and I really enjoy contributing to building those relationships and seeing our company carve out a positive reputation in BC’s water and wastewater industry. I also appreciate that our company values its employees and strives to achieve not just fair compensation, but also supports a reasonable work-life balance."
