Former Employee – worked at WRS Infrastructure & Environment, Inc.
Pros – Ability to take on responsibility and gain excellent experience very quickly. The Tallahassee office has a good variety of environmental consulting and construction work allowing newly graduated personnel to gain a very wide skillset. Also, the non-managment personnel are some of the best in the business, so there are quality mentors available to new personnel.
Cons – Managment treats employees as unessential to operations. Everyone is disposable - so be prepared to be layed off at any time. Additionally, managment does not reliably recognize quality performance. They are very cliquish and unfair - only those "popular" with senior managment get promoted, even though senior managment is located elsewhere (they appear to base decisions on rumors rather than reality). Complete lack of leadership both in Tallahassee and in the headquarters in Tampa - many personnel at this company simply operate in a void. Also, professional personnel are expected to work 60 hour weeks - and as professionals, there is no overtime pay for most work. This equates to a 50% pay cut.
Advice to Senior Management – Treat employees with respect. Share information professionally. Understand the engineers, geologists, and scientists are professional and expect to be treated that way. Set a better example for personnel - it is typical to see Senior Managment blatantly waste thousands of dollars while at the same time expecting "lower" personnel to penny pinch and do without.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
