Working for a large firm…I was mostly working on very specific tasks that would get repeated over and over again. Because RETTEW is smaller, I’m able to do all aspects of bridge design from start to finish and through construction. I actually get to see the final product. – Samy Leisenring, Senior Bridge Engineer, RETTEW
