    I felt underutilized and was not comfortable with the work produced for the client.

    Senior Technical Consultant - Project Engineer (Former Employee) Buckeye, AZ

    ProsThe company has some interesting contracts. The compensation and benefits were top notch. And there were opportunities especially if you were willing to go overseas.

    ConsWP worries more about their internal processes than the clients's wants or needs. I was embarrassed by the quality of work done for the customer. The contract I was involved with was as a customer's engineer. These were small projects ranging from a hundred thousand to several million dollars. The WP process was to run the projects like a 800 million dollar project.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet you're engineers work with the customers to provide the level of effort and extent of documentation that the custom feels is necessary. Look at the type of work being done for the client. A $200 K project should not be run like a $500 M project. The cost to the client is high with little or detrimental benefits and it runs their costs up and slows the response of the project. One size does not fit all.
