    Company needs an overall of management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThis company has great benefits and the coworkers are excellent. The company also seems to put forth a good effort to streamline departments.

    ConsWithin the company you will find no structure or oganization. This is several departments across the board. When I came aboard the HR department was not very together. My paycheck was wrong and I had a hard time getting my benefits started. When I came to work in my department - trainning was non-exsisted. Not because management did not have time- but because management had no procedures in place to follow. This seems to be the norm here at WSP NY - I figured this out becuase like I was saying with my paycheck and benefits- several calls was made and nothing was done to correct the mistake. Even after speaking with the manager (T.V) she still managed to overpay me - Oh well, I guess I can use the extra cash

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet new management that has a background in the department they oversee

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor Management

    Director (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people at most levels
    Some fantastic, iconic projects on the books
    Exposure to international projects and expertise

    ConsPromotion of talkers over doers has created a level of upper management that has no real insight of how the business generates income.
     Focus is on accounting instead of engineering. Fatal in the long term for any business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConcentrate on delivering technical excellence, financial success stems from this alone. Cutting costs to improve the bottom line as the primary business strategy will end in disaster.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mundane, comfortable for a basic london management job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Great office location in the heart of central London
    - Decent team and amicable office
    - Enthusiasm in general

    Cons- Repetitive tasks, not very dynamic
    - Skills and abilities not allowed to developed within the rigid structure of activities

    Advice to Senior ManagementWorking closer with employees, building their skills and interests. The outsourcing of intelligence seemed to be quite a problem, even when specialisation could be built among existing staff.
