      Great Benefits and Company Culture

      Pros

      There are a lot of great benefits, tons of healthcare options to choose from and it's no cost to cover the employee (spouse or children is extra). There are also SARS, up to 5 weeks vacation, and profit sharing.

      Cons

      You will work long hours. Most people work through lunch and outside of the typical work day every day.

      Tulsa, OK Office Joke

      Apr 24, 2021 - Project Manager in Tulsa, OK
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits when you travel, otherwise pay is low.

      Cons

      2 VPs act like a Tulsa office is at the top of their priority list knowing it’s not. Basically leading people on 1 by 1 until they quit. Had a team of about 50 willing to put in the time to create the office. That dwindled to basically nothing now. Company viewed from the Oklahoma area as none caring towards employees. I believe at this time if they can make people quit it’s better for them, especially with the work they’re losing. Avoid the company if possible as you’ll be relocated time after time with no choice. The ceo of the company will leave messages all happy but in the end there’s way too many employees and in reality he doesn’t care whatsoever.

      Be wary of what you're getting into

      Apr 15, 2021 - Field Engineer in Herndon, VA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      If you like working with them and spend your entire career with them, you'll have a great retirement. If at any point, you leave them before retirement age, you'll lose all their retirement benefits.

      Cons

      If you want to work 50-60 hours a week, weekends sometimes (salary so you're not compensated for anything over your base wage), under stressful conditions, over budget and past schedule, and not have a 401k match, then this job is for you! Think twice before committing to working full time with WT. They built their reputation years ago. They USED to be a great general contractor (GC), now they're an average construction manager (CM). Things are way too corporate now. Safety is so strict you can't get the job done. Your upper manager will breathe down your neck with every move you make. You get thrown into the wolves (which is a good way to learn) but you get chewed out for making a mistake. Honestly, I wish I had known better.
