I worked at Waterford Wedgwood full-time (More than 3 years)Positive OutlookApproves of CEOPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
- World renown brand name with strong reputation for your résumé - Lean organization with very hands-on approach; allows employees to really learn and hone their skills as they work - Excellent Central Jersey location; great for serious employees not looking to travel to NYC - Standard working hours plus summer schedule - Employee discount
- Upper management takes advantage of the work-life balance the location affords; low pay for industry - No promotion from within; to get a 'industry-aligned' pay increase, you have to leave - When key team members leave, their work is divided amongst remaining members, not a replacement hire
Advice to Management
You are a powerhouse brand within the industry. Treat your employees as such. Institute career tracking, work with employees to develop their skills and you will retain the top talent you helped create (that you are losing to competitors)
