Enough wrong to give you plenty to do, but enough right to keep you there.

Analyst (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsGreat work/life balance
Genuinely good people.
The office closes at 3:00pm on Fridays to start the weekend off early
Recognizable product makes your job easy to explain to others
Great location - go to the beach in San Diego for your lunch break!
Offices for most employees. Not many cubes.
Very small company means access to anyone up the chain of command.
Very friendly atmosphere. Drop in on the CEO whenever you want.
No layoffs through recession.

ConsAverage age is pretty high.
Fairly high resistance to change. IT systems need major overhauls. Marketing strategy needs redo.
Sub-par office space. Departments are broken up into suites which hinder communication.
Not a particularly eco friendly product.
Outside of WD-40, other brands are generally sub-par.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring great people to keep the friendly atmosphere.
Invest in updated IT systems.
Move to a new office space.
Change marketing strategy to educate public on new uses.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: I worked there many years, and through the course of it saw many positive changes and adaptations as needed to grow the business. The management… Cons: New blood is sometimes more valued than company experience, especially during times of evolution/change.… Advice to Senior Management: I would encourage them to continue supporting and developing their people and and to be careful not to surround themselves… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
