      Fantastic company for job security, hit-or-miss for work/life balance

      Pros

      -Decent Salary, Great benefits; If you work there your entire career, the benefits and salary increases over-time well outweight the fact that your salary is not as competitive as other top ENR contractors, if you don't account for the 401(k) matching and stock appreciation rights. -Most of the time, unless you get bad coworkers, you'll have a lot of opportunity to learn and be an important part of a team with room to grow. -Apprenticeship model (i work for a PM and eventually become a PM myself) is great ONLY if you have good leaders. If you are good at advocating for yourself, WT will try to help you achieve your career goals (as long as they align with WT's interests)

      Cons

      -Common in construction which is work/life balance. Sometimes you will be on a easy project with not much work, but most of the time, you're going to be overworked and constantly fighting burnout. Eventually, you begin to wonder if they pay is worth the stress. -Long Commutes you don't usually have a choice to deal with

      Good Company - Ridiculous Expectations

      Sep 16, 2022 - Field Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great salary and benefits Mostly good people

      Cons

      The company is great for someone whose single and only wants their life to revolve around construction. For anyone else however, it’s very demanding and can put a lot of strain on your relationships and your health (at least they provide some of the best health insurance). Working weekends is expected and very common, you’ll receive little to no compensation for when you do work a weekend.
