    Management is great and the culture is very relaxed
    Lots of approchable experienced staff willing to teach younger engineers
    Offices in Canada and India that staff can travel to given the opportunity

    Cons

    Salary doesn't always seem to be as competitive as with other engineering firms
    There isn't a clear career progression path

    Would recommend that management identify the strengths of each member of staff
    Better outline of the career opportunities available to engineers

    I worked at RWDI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent working environment - helpful and motivated. You can ask anyone for help and everyone is willing to spend time to help each other out.

    Cons

    There is a possibility to get pigeon-holed into one type of client/project and as such the work can get a bit monotonous. However that is most likely the case with most consulting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a good job of keeping the team motivated and engaged - there's flexibility to run training programs/lectures/talks for interested members.

    Competitive pay, exciting work, good benefits, people like the people they work with, a powerhouse of experienced professionals, mentorship available. There are career opportunities. The culture promotes each person to own this. "Opportunity is here for those who seek it". Take ownership.

    Biggest issues are communication and recognition. Employees can work more with management here to be part of the solution. It takes everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Be present, keep an open ear, respond, keep motivating and recognizing the efforts of those who are deserving. With increased attention on these things, the benefits to the company will be amazing.
