Overall a great company to work for.
Proposal Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHMarch 31, 2017
The Proposal (Marketing) Department is currently under considerable flux, and lacks focus. I do not wish to denounce Woolpert overall as a workplace, but I found, even with my 12 years of proposal writing/marketing within the A/E/C industry, that my skills were under utilized. I was bored with the types of projects I was assigned to do proposals for, the majority of which were federal in nature. My past experience was primarily within the private sector (higher education, hospitals, municipal, parks, recreation, etc.) and even though Woolpert had a small Design Department that worked in the private sector, unfortunately, I was not assigned to them. Basically, there were circumstances, timing, etc. that resulted in this not being a good fit for me. I did, however, enjoy the relaxed, casual atmosphere, as well as the flexibility to work from home, or wherever, when necessary. I believe overall, Woolpert to be an excellent firm to work for.
Pros
Educational opportunities, flexible schedule, work from home, excellent benefits
Cons
Management had a "look the other way" attitude towrad internal issues, especially within the department I worked in

Great workplace, good companions, excellent benefits, good business management.I learned a lot in terms of installation and standards for the installation of water pipes, meters and hydrants. The work environment is wonderful, the direction is comprehensive and very capable. We have many holidays and the relationship with our supervisors is very close and cordial.

Admin Assistant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 11, 2016
Very slow to update processes.
My manager was great and the people there were great. There was nothing hard about the job.
They took my job and split it between other offices. I only worked there about 5 months.

Woolpert is growing and changing and having all the excitement associated with that.
Program Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Dayton, OHMarch 30, 2016
Woolpert recently turned over all upper management and turned itself around from a precarious financial situation. As such, for some more long term employees, some of the radical changes have been painful, however, the changes have infused new energy and excitement in this great company. Terrific to work for! Management encourages and strives to support employee growth and development.
Pros
Management supports growth and development
Cons
Going through a lot of growing pains still.

Large multi-state company
land surveyor (Former Employee) –  Oakbrook Terrace, ILFebruary 10, 2016
I was a field worker, I had a company truck which I took home along with all my survey equipment. I spent very little time at the office my worked was sent to me via computer. Do to the to the type of equipment I used,GPS and robotics for the past 12 years I've worked alone.

My job included alot of physical activity, walking, carrying the equipment and materials,lifting manholes pounding stakes in the ground for contruction layout in all types of weather and conditions.
Because my job sometimes included doing work on several railroads and a few airports I've had several backround checks.

Company has potential to be great but lacks quality leadership.
Employee (Former Employee) –  VirginiaApril 25, 2012
Compensation does not meet industry standards. Leadership is out of touch with the staff. Disorganized leadership and lackluster corporate structure. Slow to move on business opportunities, relies too heavily on lobbyists for generating new work and opportunities. Managers subcontract out to companies owned by relatives.
Pros
great work experience
Cons
poor compensation and benefits, disorganized management, too many mid level managers.
