Pros

WSP provides an extensive range of consulting services throughout the world and there is good communication and information exchange between the offices affording excellent opportnities for growth for its younger employees.

Cons

There are in fact very few downsides, but it was noted that whilst opportunities for growth are encouraged among its younger employees, they are less apparent for older employees.

Advice to Management

Whilst WSP has excellent facilities and opportunities for professional development of its younger staff, it would be useful if the older staff who are not at director level could also be provided with similar levels of opportunities.

    Reward your employees - it's difficult to be motivated when underpaid. Rewards need to be tangible (money). Better investment in personal training and development (T&D) needed - company needs to be willing to pay for T&D courses

    Pros

    Most of stuff is very friendly and supportive

    Cons

    No training support for graduates.
    Low salaries.
    Some time unfair decision from director level with no clear reason.
    They make people redundant same time they give promotion, pay rise and external training to some staff in the same department,
    United by difference is the tag line used by the company earlier this year; which fits perfectly fine for profit sharing and playing politics..
    Management take care of senior staff and shareholder more than new and recent graduate.
    Join if you want to distroy your career.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership of WSP is not going to listen so no point in giving advice to them. They still live in 19th centure where they think china and india(along with other commonwealth countries) are poor third world countrie and discrimenate people from these countries. You can't wake up a person who is actually not sleeping. There is a big communication gap between management and employees.
