    I worked at RWDI full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Vacation time, gym stipend, small education stipend, sustainability projects

    Cons

    Psychological harassment. Qualified Leadership. Ability to cross platforms or move up. Raise structure is based on personal discretion and not based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is difficult. It requires openness, patience, understanding and not micromanaging down to the period,space and comma. Working in an environment where every minute and every meeting your “leader” shows up looking miserable and having them inject their inner and outer unhappiness into your work is particularly challenging. There is very little positive inspiration, lead by example or team work spirit in... this environment. This is something you would expect in a large institutionalized profit making environment. Not a smaller sustainability company. Sometimes one bad egg can spoil the bunch. Especially when they are in a leadership position. I would imagine operating from a place of positive inspiration and not fear based competitiveness would make a big difference at GBS, now RWDI.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Increase interaction with project teams.

    I worked at RWDI full-time for more than 8 years

    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.

    Cons

    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.
