  3. "A good stepping stone"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Junior Environmental Engineer 

    I worked at RWDI full-time

    Pros

    Diverse, experienced team; Lots of interdisciplinary work and a comfortable office environment with a gym, lockers, nice lunchroom, etc. Everyone is friendly and there are many new hires coming in through co-op so for someone just beginning their career you have the opportunity to make friends and connections.

    Cons

    Lots of hard work for less than ideal compensation; things must be done according to a certain procedure but nobody tells you what that is until you've done the task and then you find out you've done it wrong and wasted time; your timesheet dictates your life and woe be to they that uses too much time on a project for the project managers are your capricious gods now

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

    Pros

    There is no end to brilliant co-workers. there is no end to high profile interesting projects.

    Cons

    There is no end to dysfunctional leadership. There is no end to change of direction. The company has lost itself while trying to expand into every corner it can find. Putting people under constant pressure does not lead to the highest quality nor highest quantity. it just leads to trouble. The compensation is at best approaching below median.

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

    Pros

    Interesting projects. The work was never boring. There was also the flexibility to work at home occasionally.

    Cons

    Reviewers of technical documents would frequently request conflicting information. Most interactions with PMs or other analysts required scheduled meetings or were done only by email, when a quick talk with someone a cubical over or a project team meeting would be more efficient.

    Pros

    Access to unique engineering projects across a variety of private and public sectors. Lots of smart people with deep knowledge that you can learn from.

    Upper management has become stagnant. Small group of general managers with a CEO who isn't always motivated by the advice of others. Not sure if company does well because or leadership or despite leadership.
