Super productive and really fun workplace with a nice ping pong table that was a pleasant and soothing green in colour and had nary a stain nor blemish despite the many super productive and really fun hours spent paddling the ball.

Senior CAD Technician (Former Employee) –  Boston, MADecember 16, 2013
Walker was a challenging experience for the past 5 years. I learned a lot of new skill especially having to do with parking structures. From the start of a new structure to it's completion, add in addition to restoration of existing.

Talented folks but if not in strutures and highly compensated not the place to be
Marketing (Former Employee) –  San FranciscoAugust 27, 2013
High overhead combined with no input on project budgets makes for no chance at success. Lots of dead wood at the top prevents lower level employees from network development and training. Compensation schedule is meger for the area. high OH for the upper level staff makes lower end staff have to be almost 100 percent billable.
Pros
Great history and talented staff
Cons
Management, Lack of vision for growth

Cordialidad y disciplina todos los dias.
Diseñador y Asistente Técnico (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAAugust 27, 2012
El día típico de trabajo comenzaba a las 7:00 AM hasta las 5:00 PM. Por ser compañía de ingeniería los horarios siempre eran precisos y bien planificados. Aprendí los secretos del diseño espacial de parqueaderos, basados en manuales producidos por la misma empresa, usando como patrón sistemas industrializados de prefabricados en concreto pretensado. La gerencia local esta muy bien representada por un cuerpo activo de asociados, los colegas muy colaboradores y dispuestos. La parte mas difícil fue convencer a los consultores externos de mantener el ritmo del proyecto lo cual demandó comunicación permanente y asertiva. Lo que mas me gusto fue la organización y el buen nombre de la compañía.
Pros
tuve un buen paquete de beneficios.
Cons
el trabajo era temporal y no logré convertirlo en fijo.

Project Accountant (Former Employee) –  545 Davis Rd, Elgin, ILFebruary 17, 2012
Nice people to work with, close by. Unfortunately the economic downfall was my downfall and was let go due to budget cuts. However, my direct manager was a wonderful lady and took time to train my on Deltek and the procedures in the company. I took care of the Boston office and enjoyed the staff very much.
Pros
compensation, flexibility, staff
