World class projects, average pay and smallll promotions.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at MWH Global full-time for more than 3 years

Many Opportunities to Learn Engineering and Construction

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at MWH Global

ProsPleasant offices , friendly people, interesting work, competitive salaries.

ConsIt makes people wonder if managers have had the same training due to all of the changes that have taken place over the years. Consistency in management is key. Too many staff reductions keep people stressed out. No clear cut format to advance in your career. HR needs a more active role.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare information on how a person can advance in a career. Offer a much better tuition reimbursement plan. Conduct a survey to see what is going on with the people who work for you. Allow staff people to rate their managers. Communicate more with people. Allow people to feel that they have a vote.

Not an enjoyable place to be

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at MWH Global for more than 5 years

ProsInternational company which gives opportunity to interact with people all over the world.

ConsManagement is a joke. It's all about who you know, not what you know. Most managers don't know what they're doing, and the ones that do act like they're on a pedestal. They have no interest in their employees so plan on coming in (over 40hrs a week) and just figuring out your job on your own (they don't like to train people either).

Advice to Senior ManagementAsk the employees what they think of their manager

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

Director of Federal Marketing (Former Employee)
Broomfield, CO

I worked at MWH Global full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCompany has great talent available across the company.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementFind the right marketing personnel rather than use senior level managers to market company.

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

Stuck in a rut with no chance of going anywhere

Project Accountant III (Former Employee)
Westminster, CO

I worked at MWH Global full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCoworkers were nice and some of the projects that I had the opportunity to work on were interesting. Offices were modern and we had good equipment and software to work with.

ConsGood assignments and interesting projects were given to a small group of employees who were friends of the lead manager. Promoting from within wasn't done often enough, especially with high producing employees. Managers didn't trust employees to make good decisions.

Advice to Senior ManagementNotice talent when you have have it and promote those people into bigger and better jobs. Don't pigeonhole employees into one job with no chance of advancement as people get bored and move on.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
