    Pros

    WD-40 is a great place to work, the people collaborate well and are very flexible. They have excellent values and don't play politics as much as other companies. I liked the straighforward culture.

    Cons

    its a smaller company so there are less opportunities to move up in the organization.


  3. Enough wrong to give you plenty to do, but enough right to keep you there.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance Genuinely good people. The office closes at 3:00pm on Fridays to start the weekend off early Recognizable product makes your job easy to explain to others Great location - go to the beach in San Diego for your lunch break! Offices for most employees. Not many cubes. Very small company means access to anyone up the chain of command. Very friendly atmosphere. Drop in on the CEO whenever you want. No layoffs through recession.

    Cons

    Average age is pretty high. Fairly high resistance to change. IT systems need major overhauls. Marketing strategy needs redo. Sub-par office space. Departments are broken up into suites which hinder communication. Not a particularly eco friendly product. Outside of WD-40, other brands are generally sub-par.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great people to keep the friendly atmosphere. Invest in updated IT systems. Move to a new office space. Change marketing strategy to educate public on new uses.
