    Good Company when I was there. A lot of staff reduction since 2010.

    I worked at MWH Global full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent compensation, benefits. Good people at the Broomfield headquarters. My role did offer the opportunity to work from home when needed, such as during inclement weather.

    Cons

    A lack of a focused sales team and strategic focus on the Federal space. Economy quickly dragging down revenue - we didn't seem to have a plan for when the economy shifted other than to abandon ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The focus always seems to be to reduce costs instead of increasing revenue. Almost like a battle internally regarding costs instead of revenue. Listen to your staff.

    I worked at MWH Global full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I experienced a diverse set of projects and locations and found that each had strong project teams. Compensation was very strong during my five year tenure with the company. Growth opportunities were available.

    Cons

    Often, it appeared that prime contracts were entered into without comprehensive negotiation or understanding of responsibilities. A pattern of catch-up seemed to be prevalent on every job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perform adequate contract review, negotiation, risk assessment, and technical review prior to jumping in head first into large municipal projects.

    I have been working at MWH Global full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome International Tax Team. I learned a ton of information in a very short amount of time. All the employees are very friendly and helpful. I have gained very valuable experience that could be taken into public or industry tax accounting.

    Cons

    No cons for me. The only thing would be if you are looking to work with lots of people everyday this might not be the place for you. The work is very specific, and you might not have as many opportunities to branch out as you would in a large CPA firm.

    I have been working at MWH Global full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company is in a good industry, has a good reputation, has good leadership, and dedicated employees. There are very good career opportunities.

    Cons

    For any con, I know there is a solution being worked on and sometimes it will take some patience. There are pockets of issues, and there are a few managers that are a little harder to work for but overall no complaints. You can't be shy about asking for opportunities. It is important to find a good mentor/sponsor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold everyone accountable and manage poor performance.

    I worked at MWH Global as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation was more than I expected as an intern, and I was able to learn a lot while working on interesting and challenging projects. My team was very patient with answering many questions and teaching me. There were opportunities to meet with senior management and ask for advice.

    Cons

    The program was new and seemed disorganized at times. It felt odd having downtime at work simply because no one had any projects for me to work on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would have been nice to receive more feedback and constructive criticism on the quality of work your interns complete.

    Pros

    Company has great talent available across the company.

    Cons

    Senior level employees worried about company stock price and influenced decision process.

    Find the right marketing personnel rather than use senior level managers to market company.

    Be sure to inform employees of any issues as they are occurring, not after the fact. Not a great management style. Not very transparent. Try to boost morale.
