    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.

    I have been working at MWH Global full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong training program, appreciation for working hard, opportunity to work with very smart colleagues, ability to plan out the work, not a fire-drill mentality, opportunity to make good money, ability to be proactive and own something

    Cons

    Immature business processes, lack of accountability at the executive levels, too comfortable for under-performers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive some more business discipline and this has the potential to be a high performing company.

    Pros

    Projects are amazing resume builders.

    Cons

    Don't expect much of any raises and promotion increases. A 2 % raise and 5% promotion is below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your top talent or your competition will. They did for me (50% raise).

    I worked at MWH Global

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

    Share 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.

    great co-workers, SSC Council provides fun interactive monthly activities to boost morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower, motivate and support your employees with not just great leadership but monetary incentive that makes them feel you're investing in them for long term

    I worked at MWH Global (more than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Ask the employees what they think of their manager

    Pros

    Company has great talent available across the company.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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