    I worked at WSP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked within a fabulous and supportive team. My peers in other disciplines were also as great to work with. A great bunch of people to work with.

    Cons

    At corporate level, the need to make a profit and maximise efficiencies at the lowest cost possible unwittingly detracted from showing appreciation for their teams. Although all the health, wellbeing and strict safety measures were in place and closely followed, at times it felt like a tick box exercise rather than to put the safety of their staff first first.

    It is nice to work at WSP. The people are very kind and nice.

    I have been working at WSP full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people on the shop floor. Some great opportunities if you can put yourself out there. Some interesting projects

    Cons

    People not valued, over worked, focus on utilisation over everything else, very quick with redundancies if businesses numbers are dropping. Training budgets for external training minimal to nothing. Benefits eroding with time, employees getting promotion given new contracts with reductions in sick/pension/annual leave entitlement.

    I worked at WSP full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good camaraderie between colleagues, work challenging but rewarding.

    Cons

    Invisible management, focus on utilsation than on development, monies spent on new offices with fancy features nationwide, but starts to break after day one. Always seem on the prowl for their next acquisition.
