Former Employee - Research Director in Beverly, MA

I worked at WDM Group full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Relaxed, young work environment, the line level employees always try to help each other. Occasionally there is some real positive energy and this helps with motivation and drive.

Cons

Constantly cycling through dead end leads or people who already have been offered the product at one point or another, for one. However the big problem is the product itself. These are not "leading industry publications" as I was told to refer to them as. If the businesses who are in that industry sector have never heard of them, why would they want to be featured and have their vendors buy ads? I was sick of feeling dishonest by quoting false circulation numbers that were fed to me by executives who couldn't possibly believe the numbers to be real.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the content of the product and the circulation. The digital brochure product is terrific, probably the most valuable part of the package, but if the rest of the magazine content was better, more fluid and marketed better, maybe the product would be worth selling. Until then, I think this is a failure waiting to happen, to be honest.

    Pros

    You get to wear jeans to work? I suppose the work environment isn't the worst I've ever been in, as most of the employees are young and somewhat entertaining, but the way the employees are treated is atrocious. Crap, that was supposed to be a 'Pro', but that's all I got.

    Cons

    They basically pay you in happy hours, as stated above. I mean I did technically receive paychecks but the numbers on them were so few and small that I was basically just supporting my grooming habits each month. People are WAY overworked and I didn't meet a single person who respected the owners. Basically, it's a sales company and they have a completely unsustainable business model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will fall on deaf ears, I'm certain, but here goes: Stop treating people like microwaved cat diarrhea.

    I have been working at WDM Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's very easy and you can watch tv shows all day.

    Cons

    Do you want to work in a place where you're rewriting mediocre articles about current events that people have already written? Do you want to be grossly underpaid and unable to move up or learn any new skills? Do you want to work under a business plan that is completely unsustainable? Than WDM Group is the place for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. They're all planning on walking out on you.
