Truly sad, unhealthy environment

  • Culture & Values
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN

I have been working at WAND Corporation as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good co workers who try hard to make a difference.

Cons

Turn over rate insane
Always Get rid of people that make a difference
Software is the reason for so many issues but blame it on everything/everyone else
Owners will tell you one thing and do another
Owners care ONLY about themselves and their money
Unhappy customers
Hazardous building
Always blame the employees when things go wrong but half the time a paticular owner told you to do it a paticular way. It always comes back to bite you.
They have a free lunch club for "special" people every single day. If your not special too bad.
Owners bring their kids in and they run wild every Friday and disrupt business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should really take a look at all these reviews. Each person that has posted has pretty much posted the same thing over and over again. Please really take a look at what you are doing. Obviously there is an issue.

    I have been working at WAND Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers (non-executives)
    Possibility of "great-ness" if they changed they way they ran things

    Cons

    Executives (mostly all Perrill's) are in it for themselves and don't seem to care for their employee's or value their input.
    Benefits are the worst out there by any company, they may as well not even offer them that's how bad they are.
    Their "big picture" mentality is always going to keep them from succeeding, exec's seem to expect to much and promise what they cannot deliver.
    "Key" management in certain area's are clueless as to what needs to be done or how to create successful processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company depends to much on the "higher up's" and not enough on the people who make a difference. Layoff's and firing's seem to be a staple in what your company is all about; which is a shame because if you gave people enough time you would be bound for greatness!
    Over my time there I have saw many come and many go. There are people who should have been offered incentive to stay, positions that were eliminated that were needed and would have made a world of good, and big layoff's in area's where they couldn't be afforded.
    In my opinion you hold on to some employee's because of "loyalty" (HR for example) when those hours could be cut. Because it's family owned you pay yourselves enormous salaries, when if you took a cut yourself you could keep some of those "key" people and not have to let others go.
    It is sad to say that this is not a company to work for if you are looking for stability as the sad truth is you probably will not last more that 5 months. I wish I had a better review of this company because they could do great things, but they always let the good ones with idea's go and never allow them to grow.

    I have been working at WAND Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very good people who have given their time and Life to a company that will never appreciate them.

    Cons

    Leadership team that is manic
    Ever changing vision... No one knows what they are doing or why.
    Unhappy customers
    Unhealthy work expectations. If your not working then you are a slacker.. 45 hours a week at a minimum

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company and go away. Let someone who know what they are doing fix the mess that you have all created. Give the people how have worked for you a chance to save their jobs.
