    Great Place to Learn, Not Paid Enough

    Aug 16, 2022 - Project Engineer in Washington, DC

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Enjoy the team I work with and WT is a great place to learn. Free healthcare.

    Cons

    - Pay is extremely low compared to competitors. Upper management wonders why there’s a lot of turnover, I have a simple solution they don’t seem to understand. Even I/others I know don’t want to stay long because of the salary. I know several people who got promoted and there was no raise associated with it. Now why would anyone want to stay here? I was personally told it’s not about the money and how great the company is. But who makes the company great? The people who work here. - Promotion is slow and without compensation - Long Hours without compensation. Working 8hrs shouldn’t been seen as “not enough” and career hindering. Work is not the most important things in our lives. Most of us want to spend time with friends and family and not at work. Or just take time to take care of ourselves. - Upper management is just out of touch. - Have to be willing to travel if you really want your career to grow/make more money

    Selling the dream but offering low compensation

    Aug 15, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    Known company, looks good on resume

    Cons

    Where do I start.. very very conservative company with a lot of old ways of doing things. They sell you the dream but in the actuality offer significantly lower compensation that the current market. Most long term employees that stay have been brainwashed with years of mandatory benefit sessions. The company claims to be employee owned but in the actuality the employees don’t own any stock, only the “stock appreciation” so false advertisement from the start. Salaries are 20-30% lower than the competition, benefits are very similar to other companies and only slightly better so the overall compensation package is not competitive. In order to collect Stock appreciation, you have to stay there for 30 years and the same for pension when they had it. Job security for the long term employees is comparable to government level jobs and everyone knows it so they stop doing their jobs once reaching a senior level because they will not get fired. So as a young employee you will be doing all of the dirty work of your senior bosses.

    REVIEW

    Aug 11, 2022 - Project Engineer in Houston, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about construction with the Houston Location. If you have no prior experience you will be thrown to the sharks, either you sink or swim. It is a great place to start but differently not a healthy long term location. Get the knowledge and transfer to a better construction company that cares foe their employees.

    Cons

    There is no work/life balance. They Senior PM do not speak to their team with respect, so have tough skin. Learn from the superintendents, they enjoy teaching. Get what you can (experience and knowledge) and move to a better company. They are so much better construction companies out there.

    Pros

    I interned here and I loved how my project team incorporated me into their team. I felt like I was doing meaningful work for the project which allowed me to learn a lot.

    Cons

    I wouldn't say there were many cons to this job other than it has the potential for high working hours.

    Have to be willing to move/commute

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Never had layoffs in 100+ years, free insurance, 401k matching

    Cons

    Crazy schedule: long hours (one job had me waking up at 4am and commuting 2 hours away), weekend work, holiday work, night shift, could be sent out of town. Can't schedule anything in your personal life because you never know when/where you're going to be. Upper management is very bureaucratic.
