One Big Family
Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Bel Air, MDMarch 13, 2018
Its like one big family, the setup in the office is very collaborative. All the engineers, architects and surveyors are on an open floor plan making it easy for all departments to collaborate.
Benefits and yearly bonuses are by far better than other firms I have worked for.

Productive Atmosphere Complete with Friendly Faces
Marketing Intern (Current Employee) –  Bel Air, MDMarch 27, 2017
I have worked with FWA for over a year now, and the experience has been nothing short of excellent and rewarding. The management is concise and clear with instruction and they are always willing to help when needed. All staff members work together to move towards common goals that blend into an overall cohesive work environment which I love. We have continued education classes weekly (in-house with free lunches to boot!) that help us learn more about our developing industry. Major plus for me is that it's conveniently located on Main Street so there is plenty to do with my hour lunch break, including exploring the town. If you're looking for a place to work where you can grow as an employee, look no further.
Pros
Free Parking, Convenient Location, Friendly Staff, Great Management, Able to Grow and Learn

DO NOT under any circumstances work here
Worker (Former Employee)July 21, 2011
Just go somewhere else. You will be treated worse than dirt. If you have any self respect you will not even look into it. Way behind the times in all aspects of technology, management, understanding how to keep employees, respect and common courtesy.
Cons
bad management, negative work atmosphere, discrimination, no respect for others, unfair pay, friday am staff meetings before start time, mold
