    I have been working at WAND Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The culture has changed a lot since I first started here 3 years ago. With the changes to the leadership team (Dave is President - not John Perrill), this is a good place to work. Owners are not the only members of the leadership team and don't make all the decisions. I like my job here. I read the negative postings and don't believe they are from current employees - it doesn't match what I experience. We have jeans day every day now; arcade games in the lounge.

    Cons

    The building is full and parking is a pain. Break room is really small but there is a new employee lounge and can eat lunch there too. Temp is an issue some days - too warm or too cold. Could use more TAC Associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better health benefits for families.

    I have been working at WAND Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great community of employees
    - Management is involved in all levels of the company, and the management style has a 'family business' feel to it.
    - If you prove yourself, and are willing to go above the standard '9-5 mentality' you will be rewarded.
    - Very progressive thinking towards development, which makes it a very stimulating environment to work in
    - Many of the employees above the entry level role have been in the industry in some form for 10+ years, and have a great deal of knowledge to share
    - A recent facilities upgrade, and one planned for the near future, have made the working environment very comfortable
    - WAND University is closing the knowledge gap for new hires, and provides courses on every product the company offers.

    Cons

    - Although growing, WAND is still a small business. You will not get some of the perks associated with larger employers
    - You WILL work more than 40 hours a week if you want to get recognized (it's a development house, what did you expect???). Don't apply for this company if you draw the line at 40 hours a week.
    - There is a good deal of revamping going on, and this means a lot of compensation by employees.
    - There is still high turnover in the TAC. It would be nice to see the criteria for hiring these employees raised a little bit. The current approach seems to be locating warm bodies who can string a coherent sentence together - not on quality service providers.
    - The development cycle is sometimes rushed beyond what is realistically achievable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue pushing into new concepts. WAND has its bread and butter in Wendy's, now it's time to go get some sides!

    I have been working at WAND Corporation

    Pros

    Started in 2008. Enjoy the people that I work with - there is some great teamwork here. Encouraged by the changes the company has made in the last several months. Mgmt is listening and responding to employees.

    Cons

    The workload can be heavy - but that has been slowly improving with the addition of more employees. Larger break room needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employee accomplishments not just in those departments that work directly with customers - behind the scenes accomplishments should be noted as well.
