    Pros

    Good product, loyal service workforce

    Cons

    Executive leadership, politics, non strategic thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think long term, rid yourself of WMS Sr Leadership (they drove it into the ground).

    I worked at WMS Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cool technology in a unique industry - and a pretty different office setting surrounded by artists, musicians, developers which offers great diversity.

    Cons

    Slow to adopt/accept change or ideas from elsewhere. Highly political atmosphere with clear favorites. Great place to work if you're an engineer, but if you're looking for a professional environment - this isn't it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come down a few thousand feet to see what employees are thinking/feeling/needing.

    Pros

    Opportunities to try and fix the many things wrong. They do offer competitive benefits outside of salary. Potential growth in the business.

    Cons

    No career management or growth opportunities in majority of the areas in the company. Employees are stretched very thin and over burdened.

    I have been working at WMS Industries

    Pros

    Innovative, Creative, Bleeding edge, employee appreciatation cookies, good benefits, on-site gym, very smart people willing to take sensible risks, willing to provide the proper training/education.

    Cons

    Every three to five years they have massive lay-offs, 10%+ of the work force. Poor communication from the top manage down to the worker bees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management needs to communicate the business strategy to everyone in the organization. You would get many answers to the question "What is the direction of the company?" The direction of the company seems to change every quarter.
