    You will continue to lose great people if you keep listening to those that have no backbone.

    I worked at Walter P. Moore and Associates full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Experienced professionals work there that have the ability to develop young engineers. Efficient methods of design have already been established so there is no need to start each project or computation from scratch.

    Cons

    The experienced professionals have ZERO time to train engineers. The company is currently loosing money monthly on development projects in the civil sector. For having such a nice office and a name well known in engineering, their base pay is extremely low. The bonuses are a joke. No profit sharing.The lack of technical projects taken on (none) develop engineers in to civil servants who email and answer calls all day. I left due to extreme boredom. 30+ hours of office time a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to train engineers. Take on more technical projects so you aren't grading a parking lot over and over.

    I have been working at Walter P. Moore and Associates full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a good place to work in, things have changed in the last 2-3 years for the worse. Job security is still good

    Cons

    Lack of integrity in section manger that I deal with and his immediate supervisor. IN this company you can create unique solutions that have never been done before and no one thaught you how to do, but in every single occasion you will find that the mangers will claim the wrok to be their own. You are prevented even from meeting the client as their egos might get hurt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being this dishonest, stop plagiarizing. Upper mangers can easily check the linkedin pages of lower mangers and check the content and claimed expertise against the employment record, when someone in their linkedin page claims something and they were not even in the company at the time, well, duaaah
