    Creative and fun job

    Wilton Method Instructor (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsIndependent Contractors set their own schedule
    Marketing is provided by Wilton

    ConsPay is low, most WMI's teach because they love to teach, not because they are paid well.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Glass Half Full

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSupportive management, increasing career opportunities for those who work hard, half-day Fridays during the summer, a growing understanding for the digital space.

    ConsProjects are done on increasingly short deadlines, some of which suffer as a result. Can't help but wonder often how much better a product could have been if adequate time had been given to develop it, rather than fixing it in the aftermath.

    Over 10 years with company

    Graphic Artist (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe products are fun to promote. Lots of test kitchen "mistakes" to enjoy.

    ConsVery cliquish & high school-ish.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps listen to the customers and workers, not to your own narrow minded ideas.

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

    Good products and brand by disconnect between workers and management.

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Woodridge, IL

    ProsGood salary and people that work there are great people. Lots of energy to be creative and share ideas.

    ConsVery political to move up in the organization, not a clear career path to follow. Old school management style and HQ has dated facilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend some time on the ground floor and walk around to see what is going on. Ask for more honest feedback and empower the entry workers to want to have a career.

    Lots of Products, but open to losing business from competition

    Product Development Director (Former Employee) Woodridge, IL

    ProsGreat brand, awesome tent sale, HR team was good, great move package (at least it was before venture capital owned them), excellent distribution system, technologically advanced.

    ConsDivision was shut down due to competition from China, and direct outsourcing by our customers. Brand is good but the venture capatilists rolling it all together and leveraging that much debt into one company can't be good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on employees is good but always can be better - don't forget about management trainee programs and bringing in young stars that make for future contributors.

    Interesting work and products, a lot of good hard working people.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSummer hours, employee discount, some great people

    Consnot much flexibility in schedule, can't work from home, some people are very difficult

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow flexible schedules - work from home one day a week.
