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.
Working with the Walker team is like being a part of an extended family. They have welcomed me in and given me responsibility and respect, despite being from California.
The Principals here worked hard to make the hiring and moving transition as easy as possible, while continuously keeping my best interests in mind. From allowing a flexible start date to provide time to sell my prior home and find new living arrangements, to helping my wife search for a new job; Walker was there to assist along the way. The entire office made me feel like part of the team from the moment I stepped foot inside the door, and we never looked back. The commitment to the “work hard, play hard” mentality is exuded by everyone and remains unmatched to anywhere else I have ever seen, allowing me to enjoy what Bend has to offer with my co-workers and family.
