Hard Work and Dedication Will Get You Nowhere
Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Andover, MAMarch 11, 2017
The company has become a place with too many senior managers, too much bureaucracy, little accountability for staff, poor project delivery, too much emphasis on profitability, a lack of career opportunities and just a generally poor overall work environment.
Pros
Decent pay and benefits.
Cons
Poor communication. Senior management who only become engaged when there is an issue.

Limited Resources
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Andover, MAJanuary 29, 2017
Company is spread very thin across service lines which leads to the problem of limited resources to efficiently execute work. Very easy to fall into the "curse of competence" trap with this company. Limited opportunities for career growth. Some upper managers are extremely difficult to work with. Unimpressive technical capabilities across the firm. Poor communication across the company.
Pros
Decent pay and benefits

Past Its Prime
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Dedham, MAMarch 20, 2017
Company is on a down slide and losing market share. Communication is lacking across all levels of the firm. Too many employees who are content to do the bare minimum. Company has become too concerned with metrics.
Pros
Benefits that are slightly above industry average.
Cons
Poorly trained managers

Great place for career advancement and personal growth
Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  MassachusettsDecember 14, 2016
Given the size of the company, you have to be willing to engage to get the most out of the Woodard & Curran experience. There are multiple opportunities available to anyone that’s willing to seize them. If you choose not to be involved in the culture, chances are that your experience here will be less rewarding. On the other hand, if you do take charge of your own development, people at all levels are ready and willing to help you achieve your goals. Let’s face it, no company is perfect. But at Woodard & Curran, people do come first and management does a great job of trying to live up to the mission statement on a daily basis. I enjoy coming to work each day and would recommend Woodard & Curran to anyone in the industry.

Great Company
Employee (Current Employee) –  New EnglandSeptember 28, 2016
While no company or job is perfect, I have enjoyed my time at Woodard & Curran. It's work that has a positive impact on the environment and communities, and a company that has every intention to puts its people first. I would recommend to others without hesitating. The company is going through changes and is focused on growing the business to new regions. This of course creates new ways of doing things and new systems to learn, but has the potential to provide additional opportunities for employee's. I enjoy going to work each day, and I'm proud of the work that I accomplish with my team.
Pros
Great people, and plenty of free food for meetings and events.
Cons
Training is available, but for those willing to ask.

Used to Be a Great Place to Work
Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Providence, RINovember 4, 2015
Up until a couple of years ago, W&C was a good place to work. And then the company hit that tipping point where they started to lose their identity. While "only" about 800 people, the company has started to look and act like a company ten times the size, and that isn't necessarily a good thing. Once a place with good people, great work life balance and great career opportunities, the company is being transformed into nothing more than a business which operates solely for the bottom line. What a shame.

Poor working employee enviroment, knee jerk- not given time to complete projects properly and safely.
O&M Technician (Former Employee) –  Inverness, FloridaDecember 21, 2014
New project management creating poor working enviroment for employees. Not enough thought put into planing of work to be completed for safety of employee or customer. Moving away from company statement which will probably lead to dropped contracts and job loses.
Pros
Pays fair, good healthcare, great customers to work for, and some fellow employees.
Cons
Bringing in poor management from the outside, should pull from within, company being remote needs to keep a closer eye on this.

I worked as an intern at Woodard and Curran. Great people to work with. Was given space and time to complete work properly.
