Pros

Opportunities to try and fix the many things wrong. They do offer competitive benefits outside of salary. Potential growth in the business.

Cons

No career management or growth opportunities in majority of the areas in the company. Employees are stretched very thin and over burdened.

    I have been working at WMS Industries

    Pros

    Innovative, Creative, Bleeding edge, employee appreciatation cookies, good benefits, on-site gym, very smart people willing to take sensible risks, willing to provide the proper training/education.

    Cons

    Every three to five years they have massive lay-offs, 10%+ of the work force. Poor communication from the top manage down to the worker bees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management needs to communicate the business strategy to everyone in the organization. You would get many answers to the question "What is the direction of the company?" The direction of the company seems to change every quarter.
