I have been working at Watkins Inc full-time (More than a year)
Not much here, one of the main advantages is that management is too busy in meetings and other useless tasks to know where you are and when you leave and get in. You could easily work 20hours and get paid for 40.
The cons include poor upper management, very poor middle management. One gets penalized for being smart at this company, because most entry level workers do not want to work hard (or not bright enough), so the more experience/education you have, the more work load you will get...without any recognition or wage increase. Also, the only way management knows, is to motivate people by negative reinforcement. This, as well as other poor choices, makes Watkins a place where one has no benefit or desire to work hard in his job; because working hard just gives a person more busy work/duties for NO gains.
Advice to Management
Wow, where to start. I would give many demotions to management personnel whom have no business in their positions, due to lack of knowledge or people skills. Also, try for once to interview people more effectively, and give lower management a louder voice in the personnel they have and how to best utilize them. By the way, a few extra dollars top the people whom actually work hard and effectively, not just give the largest raises to the people whom "brown nose" and call out co-worker's mistakes.
