Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WADecember 21, 2017

Large company with bureaucracy that comes with size

Great job
Housing Inspector (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 9, 2017
you police yourself in this job. if you apply yourself you can do a lot of good for many people including yourself. the pay is great.

The down side to this job is that it is temporary. Also, you need to be able tho cover your own expenses for two weeks until you are reimbursed
Pros
Paid expenses, bonus money per hour for health/ wellness and vacation, no micro managing or hovering supervisor
Cons
need access to $2000 to cover exp. upfront, work 7 days a week until disaster is complete, time away from family

Great exposure as young engineer, poor management
Electrical Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CADecember 6, 2017
As a younger engineer I've been given great opportunities to take on large/challenging projects and have learned quickly. Management trusts your capabilities. Colleagues are supportive to foster technical growth. I've gained experience on many different types of projects. However, management is poor in the respect that I've worked on tasks that extend way above my job description (without compensation) because the work load is unevenly distributed/there are not enough employees to complete the work.
Pros
Good exposure to variety of tasks and types of projects
Cons
lacking culture, low pay

Project work thats very rewarding by assisting needy families in their time of disaster.
FEMA Housing Inspector (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 2, 2017
Typical day at work includes appointment scheduling, verifying applicant information via phone and traveling in the field to customer locations to determine needs based on inspector findings. This job has little to no supervision. The hardest part of the job is being away from family for extended periods of time. The most enjoyable part is being able to help needy customers that has been impacted by disaster.
Pros
good pay, flexible schedule, paid holidays and benifits
Cons
away from family, out of pocket expenses

Great Job but Temporary
Field Technician (Current Employee) –  Winchester, VAOctober 30, 2017
It's a well paying job but its only temporary so you'll have to have something on the side or just work hard when their are hours. There are many chances to move on to other organizations like FEMA.
Pros
Great Pay, Chances to move around, Trips
Cons
Tons of hours, Temporary

Busy production company!
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX 77015August 7, 2017
My days with this company were for the most part very productive and fun as we were a busy company with a lot of production.

I believed we are able to learn something new everyday even when we don't realize it.

Things could have be way better if there hadn't been so much favoritism from the HR manager but everyone was cordial with each other to make every ones day pleasant.

Was owned by Chinese so something different.

My job was fairly easy and as long as I kept busy it would go by quick.

The employees and vendors were always nice and enjoyable to communicate with.
Pros
Free lunch

IT Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAJuly 12, 2017
Really nothing good to say about WSP. They couldn't care less about their employees. Its a Canadian based company and I believe if you are not from Canada you are pretty much worthless in their eyes.

Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJune 21, 2017
The staff is very supportive and encouraging. They truly want to see you succeed. They provide you with resources, information you need to do well. They motivate you to do your best, and work hard. They truly care not just about the success of the organization, but about your well being too. They give great vacation time, and are very understanding and supportive of your needs. If you want to move up within the company, they will tell you how.
