I worked at WD Partners

Pros

The best reason to work for WD Partners is that you can get some of experience needed for professional registration, and they pay for registration exams. They have limited project types (retail/restaurants) that typically are in different parts of the country, so there is little hope to get all professional Intern Development Program or Engineer In Training requirements completed at WD Partners. There are little to no design or construction observation opportunities at WD Partners, as most of the design and construction observations are done by clients (or other third-parties). The only other good reason to work at WD Partners is that they have good PTO and work-life balance. No one ever works over 40 hours in a week.

Cons

Managers do not respect professional registration or experience, as it is not necessary for the business model or projects. Most work is done with associates with no professional registration and little to no review by those signing or sealing drawings. There are very limited types of project types (retail/restaurants) and a lot of roll-out and respetitive work (typically are in different parts of the country), so there is little hope to get all professional Intern Development Program or Engineer In Training requirements completed at WD Partners.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of clients better if you want to get more work. Client were never respected or taken care of by the right people.

    I worked at WD Partners full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people within the office on the whole. Friendly group.

    Cons

    Where there smoke there is usually fire. The whole thing is a smoke screen. The upper management from Dublin is a two-faced deceptive group. The management at the TO office is inexperienced and a joke. Typical US firm style.
    They work you to the max, and discard you when they feel you cannot help them. They dislike anyone who has good knowledge and knows more than the top staffers.
    HR is a total joke and the manager has no idea what they are doing.
    The other managers are non-existent in their ability to manage and are spies for the the head office and lie to your face. Watch your back from some of them as they will use you and bounce you.
    The training at the start looks good, but it is all a smoke screen. There is no in-depth training from the local office.
    There is no long term here, it is a stepping point and that's all. They cannot get another client as they have no understanding on servicing the immediate priorities. Pay level for the amount of work required is insufficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better managers and learn how to properly treat people.
