Relationships are everything

Engineer (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at MWH Global

Prosinteresting projects in interesting areas, there is however TONS of politics that senior management chooses to ignore. This hinders one from being able to focus on the right things.

Consa difficult organization to navigate, it's all about who you know and who will support you. Difficult to get the right mentors and mentorship is key to getting ahead.

Advice to Senior Managementsupport your staff better, they are your key to growth. Find a way to be more competitive in the market place in terms of salaries and benefits.

Great people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Broomfield, CO

I have been working at MWH Global

ProsThe talent within the company is quite impressive. MWH takes care of its people.

ConsThe company acts more like a collection of small offices, doesn't leverage its base of talent as well as it could. The "caring" culture also translates to reluctance to hold people accountable. Very few women or minorities in senior positions. As a result of these factors, the company doesn't measure up to its potential.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold people accountable for results at all levels.

Depends on what you're doing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Broomfield, CO

I have been working at MWH Global

ProsNice work environment
Smart people
Managers are flexible

ConsMy position is empty, doesn't match my qualifications
There is little interdepartmental cooperation
Hours are watched
PTO is only 15 days, including sick

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company is too top heavy and stuffy. You should offer more flexibility in terms of dress, PTO, etc. You have people working for you who are not being fully utilized.

Very disappointed

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Broomfield, CO

I have been working at MWH Global

ProsIf you are an engineer, it is a good company to work for, if you are not, don't bother

ConsAs noted above, unless you are an engineer, there is no chance of ever going anywhere or doing anything for this company. The management is not good and lower level employees are treated very poorly. There is a reason there is such high turnover at this company.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like they are an important part of making the company successful, not just executive management. REalize that without all the "little people" MWH would be nothing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
