I have been working at Watson Dwyer

Pros

It's a temporary agency, so you get paid every week.

Cons

I had no idea how long my assignment would last and now several months later, I'm still in limbo.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Giving employees a more clear and concise assignment would improve the company immensely.

    I have been working at Watson Dwyer full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I can make my own schedule. I am not micromanaged, and my success in the industry and with this firm is based solely on my own discipline and how hard I work. I love everyone, EVERYONE I work with and I can't say that about previous positions. This is a team environment, with the mentality of "work hard, play hard". Watson Dwyer believes in a Work-Life Balance.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons. Maybe a low starting salary? But I just graduated college, so I don't expect to make a base salary of $40K.

    Learn how to run a business the right way. Create a handbook and set policies and procedures instead of making them up as you go along.
