My time at Walker Structural Engineering has enabled me to gain experience, constantly improve skills, create professional relationships, and develop valuable judgement, by working with many different clients and design professionals on a variety of projects. The Principals at WSE are transparent with project expectations and are approachable when seeking their guidance and expertise. WSE promotes an active lifestyle by offering employer sponsored work-out sessions and providing sit/stand adjustable desks, which helps contribute to hard work, efficiency, and teamwork in the office environment.
My time at Walker has always felt like working with family. From the start, all the people have been incredibly welcoming and friendly. Everybody greets you with a smile and is willing to help with any problem from using the coffee machine to complex engineering problems. The Principal engineers are approachable, accessible, and constantly encourage you to ask questions. Even outside of the office, the comradery is amazing and continues into Tuesday and Thursday workouts, biking or skiing, and getting together for lunch or drinks. While I have worked at Walker, I have grown exponentially as both an engineer and a person thanks to the people I work with every day.
