"WJE allows its employees to pursue their passions and interests, while providing them with the opportunity to experience things they might have not known about. I think this motivates everyone to find something they're truly passionate about and enjoy the work that they do. I've had the opportunity to become more than just a book-smart engineer. I'm in the field performing anchor shear tests one day and designing the next. I love the variety of work i do. I really feel like I'm gaining well-rounded work experience."
