    Pros

    Feel supported from afar. Flexible hours. Reasonable pay. I feel respected as an employee and human being.

    Cons

    They haven't been able yet to establish an office where I live so there isn't really any room to grow in my current job.

    Pros

    Multiple offices and disciplines which makes it easier to take on different types of projects and move around within the company. The projects themselves are interesting and challenging, and there is a big emphasis on managers providing mentorship to promote more advancement in the company. Health and wellness initiatives are promoted a lot in the offices. Great time off policy too.

    Cons

    With the company expanding, Internal IT resources can be stretched thin.

    Advice to Management

    Continued investment in IS solutions that meet the needs of all employees will make the operations more efficient.

    I have been working at Woodard & Curran full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's great to be working for a company that cares about it's employees, communities, and the environment. At the end of the day I know that I have contributed to a great cause whether it's clean drinking water, cleaning up contaminated land, or keeping industrial companies in compliance with environmental and safety regulations. The company is committed to providing growth opportunities and sharing financial success with all it's employees. The best part of all is working with others that enjoy the work they do, it's a great team environment!

    Cons

    As is the case in many companies growth opportunities aren't always the same for everyone at the same time. Some business area's are more successful than others and provide more opportunity for growth. Employee's do need to take it on themselves for additional training and development opportunities, but are rarely turned down when they do ask.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a focus on offering internal training opportunities that relate to business and communication skills.

    Pros

    Growing company, strong values/culture, flexible environment.

    Cons

    Some work to be done around standardization, processes, and systems to withstand growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on building more infrastructure to support managers and mentor junior staff.

    I worked at Woodard & Curran full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good firm from a technical standpoint and encourages an entrepreneurial atmosphere.

    Cons

    Once upon a time when Al and Frank were still involved this was a truly great and rewarding company to work for. The mantra was caring greatly about the employees which they did. Well that is still the mantra but it is no longer true. Financial performance is now the number one priority above all else. So may good people have left recently, some voluntarily and some not.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to your roots and walk the talk.

    I worked at Woodard & Curran full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many coworkers are fun to work with and very smart.

    Cons

    Position was not as advertised, the jobs are not technically challenging, the hours are longer and there is no team. The company has an extremely high turn around rate, and only a handful of employees have been with the company for more than 10 years, these individuals are not to be trusted with your career. Upper management does little to mentor young engineers and is stuck in a rut by firmly adhering to what they know. There is little room for career growth within the company and talking negatively about a former employee for leaving is a problem in the office. There is also unnecessary drama within the office at times as there are no clear rules for acceptable conduct. Ethics is not their strong suite. -DO NOT BE FOOLED IN THE INTERVIEWS, THEY ARE SELLING YOU ON AN IDEA THAT DOES NOT EXIST IN THIS COMPANY.

    Advice to Management

    Step up to your position or step down from it.
