Pros

There is so much to learn at CWP. I began as an intern and worked for 2 years as a manager. Throughout my time at the company, I never stopped learning which is why I stayed for 2.5 years. Most of the upper management genuinely cares about the people they work with. My division was like a family to me.

Cons

I spent so much time working. I pretty much worked 24/7. My VP made me feel guilty every time I asked for a day or two to spend with my family. Also, the pay isn't the best. It can be great for some people who have a killer team, but it is extremely difficult to get to that point.

Advice to Management

Give the managers a break now and then. It is so easy to get burn out when you work so much and don't feel appreciated

    Incentive based pay, Great work schedule, decent coworkers and a great way to build networks

    Delay in Pay schedule, management can be spotty in hours because of contract based pay, expect to be short changed

    Pros

    It's rare you'll find an opportunity for a student that's 18 or 19 years old that's given the responsibility of making their own decisions with a business that they get to run. It was an awesome experience and I still work for the company 6 years later as the Marketing Director.

    Cons

    It's a ton of hard work and you're going to have to make sacrifices. Just like anything else though, anything worth anything is going to be tough.
