    Not All that it Seems from Outside

    Vice President Ops (Former Employee) Waukegan, IL

    ProsGood product, loyal service workforce

    ConsExecutive leadership, politics, non strategic thinking

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink long term, rid yourself of WMS Sr Leadership (they drove it into the ground).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Culture of Paranoia

    Director (Former Employee) Waukegan, IL

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

    ConsSlow 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 Senior ManagementCome down a few thousand feet to see what employees are thinking/feeling/needing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    What once was...

    Operations (Current Employee) Waukegan, IL

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

    ConsNo career management or growth opportunities in majority of the areas in the company. Employees are stretched very thin and over burdened.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    WMS needs to get the whole company moving in the same direction.

    Project Management (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsInnovative, 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.

    ConsEvery 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 Senior ManagementUpper 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
