    I have been working at WSP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overtime is great, flexible schedule,

    Cons

    Field personnel and office personnel do not have much communication. Never speak to anyone in the office outside of your scheduler.

    Can get laid off with a week or even a days notice.

    DO NOT GET THANKED FOR ANY OF THE HARD WORK OR HARD TASKED YOU ACCOMPLISH OUTSIDE OF YOUR JOB DESCRIPTION.

    VERY LITTLE VALUE TO EMPLOYEES

    Advice to Management

    Keep the field guys involved with meeting information and information with further work rather then just laying people off in a weeks notice.

    Listen to story made-up co-worker. Be prepared to listen hopefully enjoyable.

    Lots of rumors due to poor management. HR lead is under influenced and not independent to solve conflicts. Forceful work to be done. New PE license will be pushed to seal the work. Be prepared!

    I worked at WSP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, opportunity, experience, compensation, 401k

    Cons

    Management believes unless you have been in the industry for more than 10 years you should not be allowed to voice your opinion. Creative thinking is frowned upon. The culture is one of harassment and intimidation. There is no justice at any level in this company. The Albuquerque office is under new management and they are trying to push a corporate agenda that hires too many people and leaves current employees with nothing to do except attack one another for petty things. If you enjoy office politics this is your place. Anti-social culture that forces you to have awkward attempts at connecting with people who are closed minded and bitter because they have not made it to where they should be after 25 years. Many managers dont even have a degree in engineering. Insecurity rules. Try to innovate or show ambition and prepare to be slowly “pushed” out as my manager put it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like human beings.
