Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook

I have been working at WSP full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great people at most levels
Some fantastic, iconic projects on the books
Exposure to international projects and expertise

Cons

Promotion of talkers over doers has created a level of upper management that has no real insight of how the business generates income.
 Focus is on accounting instead of engineering. Fatal in the long term for any business.

Advice to Management

Concentrate on delivering technical excellence, financial success stems from this alone. Cutting costs to improve the bottom line as the primary business strategy will end in disaster.
