The ability to move up tremendously
Base pay isn't good Long Hours The first couple years are rough, since you hardly receive any benefits.

The company offers solid benefits and opportunities for learning and growth, which can be valuable for recent grads entering the construction industry. However, the cons, particularly the challenges posed by poor management, hostile work environments, lack of flexibility, and subpar compensation, need to be carefully considered.
Poor Management: Decision-making processes often felt arbitrary and disconnected from the actual needs of the teams. This led to frustration and hindered overall efficiency. Saw it in ops and in support groups. Absence of HR: No HR! There isn't a proper channel for addressing concerns. They are supposed to be reported to your manager, which means many don't say or do anything. Hostile Work Environments: Some departments or project teams fostered hostile work environments. Not productive, especially in this industry. Lack of Flexibility: Your manager can do whatever they want. You can't. Compensation: Very low pay. Not even close to what you can make elsewhere. Lack of Diversity: I can count on one hand the number of women and POC in senior leadership.3

The company culture at WT is incomparable to anyone else. The CEO, Mr. Regan is amazing. My team genuinely cared for me as a person, and I was always growing with the company. The benefits are superior and outshine any competitors in the area and the work-life balance is important to everyone. The office is a family and the company is a true honor to work for.
Truly, I had no cons.

Job security and benefits are the biggest pros.
Below average pay, long hours, trial by fire, not a lot of transparancy.

The stability at WT is really great. Even during a pandemic or any strange economic downturn they will make it a point to not fire you and retain your employees. That being said, I saw a lot of turnover during my time there. Great learning experience, opportunity for slow growth, unless you're a favorite. I was actually treated pretty well compared to some of my peers.
You need to work extremely long hours to become a favorite or for them to recognize you as a stellar employee. There is not much work-life balance especially working for their big name clients. Sometimes depending on the project they will send you far from your home even though they will compensate you for gas. Depending on who your manager is, you'll see them having a much more flexible schedule and when you ask for the same understanding/flexibility they will want you at the office no matter what even if they themselves are not at the office. The pay is good but not good enough to work 40+ hours.2
