Please tell us about promotion possibilities and fill us in on what it takes to move up the ranks.
As a graduate it is difficult to tell however I hope following the 2 year graduate program we are recognised no longer as grads.
Graduate, Brisbane
GHD don't really have promotions, you tend to negotiate your way based on how much you can charge a client.
Graduate, Brisbane
Great opportunities to move around and up
Graduate, Brisbane
Commitment to the job, desire to learn and improve. Showing people you are willing.
Graduate, Brisbane
No such thing as promotions for younger employees. Need to be here for a long time before you move up the ranks
Graduate, Sydney
There are opportunities for moving between teams, allowing growth of experience. Generally, experience is what allows you to move up the ranks
Graduate, Brisbane
With the training programs in place with graduates, they endorse growth within their employees
Graduate, Brisbane
I want to progress Career wise into a Principal Engineer. I think with the support of my experienced colleagues this is a streamlined process.
Midlevel, Sydney
Still not sure about promotion possibilities, it seems it takes quite some time to go up a pay scale.
Graduate, Sydney
Initially just gaining experience and meeting a certain number of years means you move up a band. Opportunities to be involved in extracurricular activities or help with certain team activities.
Graduate, Brisbane
Promotions and career progression are severely limited during the first 3 years as a grad.
Graduate, Brisbane
The graduate program is fairly fixed for the first two years. I believe your pay goes up after a year. I can't really comment for middle to upper career level progression.
Graduate, Sydney
I have climbed the ranks significantly yet, but i have been exposed to many teams and a variety of work which makes me feel like a have plenty of career progression within this one company.
Graduate, Sydney/ Brisbane
Moving up the ranks is dependent on how long you have been working at the company.
Graduate, Melbourne
It appears there is a good path for progression across the company, but it remains unclear what responsibilities are added on at each level, and what salaries can be expected at each level. If I am not earning much more here over the next 5 years, should I stay or go?
Graduate, Melbourne
Best opportunity is to come back with more experience later in career
Graduate, Perth
Mostly experience-based. Can only progress so fast based on competency alone.
Graduate, Perth
The path ahead of me is clear and concise. To get a promotion I need to learn enough to be able to work independently within acceptable time frames and quality.
Intern, Perth
The company has structures and plans in place to help employees move up the ranks, and in my role it is clear what the prospects are I just don't want to reach those prospects, hence the 5 rating. I have found that if you do good work most of the time, take in & apply feedback and learn from any errors you make, then people generally trust you more.
Graduate, Melbourne
As long as you can demonstrate that you've had a variety of experiences and take up additional roles, you will be recognized.
