“I am continually surprised by the breadth and depth of our knowledge as a company. I find that almost every project has an aspect that is new to me but is someone else’s area of expertise, and that colleague is only a phone call away! Our drive to problem-solve really sets us apart from other firms. I love to brainstorm solutions with a team. That’s a trait that so many of us share at WJE.”

“WJE’s reputation as a preeminent problem solver attracted me to work here. I’ve been surprised at how much autonomy and responsibility WJE gives project managers, even young ones. This culture of trust is deeply motivating for me. My favorite project happened at the beginning of the pandemic. It involved construction troubleshooting that required relocating my family to rural Louisiana. My kids still talk about our adventure in the bayou, complete with swamps, snakes, and boiled crawfish.”

“The fact that I would be able to work on cool projects, travel, and not be sitting at a desk all the time influenced my decision to join WJE. My favorite projects to work on have been the Be Grand project in Mexico City and The Victor project in Dallas. It’s great that WJE's professionals have the freedom to create our own paths. It has helped the company be so successful.”
Anthony Dukes
Clemson University, Bachelor of Science, Civil Engineering
“My decision to join WJE was based on the rich history of the company, including both its forensics background and problem-avoidance practice. I’ve been impressed by the culture of trust and respect along with the ability to reach out to veteran colleagues who are enthusiastically willing to assist with my development. The company and its remarkable people will pour into you just as much (and usually more) than you pour back.” 
Kimberly Latona
Peirce College, Bachelor of Science, Business Administration Management
Capella University, Master of Science, Organization and Management
“A big reason why I joined WJE was because of the warm and welcoming environment during my in-person interview. I was also given the opportunity to meet with several senior staff who shared positive work experiences.
Since then, I’ve found out that the environment at WJE is inclusive. Administrative professionals are included in company-wide decisions, and we are considered valuable personnel alongside subject-matter experts. We have the best administrative community. We support and encourage each other company-wide.”

“Two things set WJE apart: everyone has such a passion for the work, and everyone believes in a high level of quality. WJE trusts employees, and that permeates our culture. WJE employees have an open-door policy, which has led to exponential personal career growth by improving my relationships and expanding my technical knowledge. My favorite project has been working with repair documents and more at the oldest and newest libraries in Washington, D.C.; I worked with wildly different building facade systems simultaneously.”
Gloria Moy
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Bachelor of Science, Architecture
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Master of Architecture
"I worked at a couple of design firms before working here. During those internships, my favorite part was the on-site work, but usually, that was a small fraction of my time. Typically, I would have one project and redo designs every other week. I interned at WJE and loved the fast-paced environment of working on multiple projects, including being able to spend half of my time on-site."

“During my interview process, I was amazed by how welcoming the Seattle staff were. WJE quickly turned into a company I saw myself being a part of. I am given the freedom and flexibility to make my own schedule and pursue my own professional ambitions without being micro-managed. Being able to help on projects in Florida, California, Alaska, and elsewhere has helped broaden my exposure in the industry.”
