WET Design - Super expensive projects due to horrendous waste

Pros

Clients still hire them to design and build fountains. They build pretty features, but everything is done very expensively, and not necessarily to a high level of quality.

Cons

Projects are way over-priced. One visit to their facilities will show you how they spend all that money. Incredible attention to appearances and how everything looks. A short time on their manufacturing floor will show you how the money goes down the drain. Incredible waste of time and materials due to poor planning, poor communication, multiple rework, and scrapping of hardware. Lack of communication and finger pointing when problems arise is rampant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show some backbone and true leadership. Start treating employees with respect and not as pawns that get sacrificed at the first sign of trouble.

    WET Design - horribly mismanaged company

    Pros

    They have a nice end product, which looks good. Appearance is very important to this company. They have a good public image.

    Cons

    Extreme micromanagement by CEO. People scream and yell about things and then never follow through themselves to solve a problem. The same problems seem to occur over and over again.

    CEO surrounds himself with incompetent brown-nosers, and fires good people based on emotions. Most employees including the senior level managers are motivated through fear and intimidation. Company has had incredible turn over. People who have been there a long time seem to have figured out how to play the right office politics with the CEO. Office politics is HUGE at WET.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time worrying about how to decorate the building, and more time on getting the work done. Spend less effort on personal fashion and outfits, and more time on becoming better team players.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i liked the management. i enjoyed the flexibility to take initiative. sometimes it was hard to progress with work because of the lack of space to store materials and conduct experiments
