    Pros

    WW has a very comfortable culture. It is not at all unusual for junior staff to connect with senior leadership. Leadership places a high priority on both taking care of client needs and innovation. The Associate Development Council is a perfect example of how leadership prioritizes the needs of associates. The recent global rollout of performance management is another example. John Haley has done a very good job of managing the company through difficult times. I anticipate that WW will manage the current economic times better than most organizations. Overall I highly recommend WW

    Cons

    More feedback from managers would be helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the work that has been started with the ADC

    Pros

    Wonderful culture - there are many hold over associates from the time when the company was employee owned. Associates tend to truly care about the well-being of fellow associates. Management tends to respect the strengths and weaknesses of individual contributors. The company is trying desperately to promote women and minorities but having difficulties in the actuarial field. Leadership tends to take a longer view on success and not worry about results at the end of each fiscal quarter. In the trenches, associates really care about helping clients solve their problems.

    Cons

    complex matrix management - very hard to understand who is in charge of what - many informal networks. Your individual work experience depends heavily on your office -team - country of employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is really all about the clients - not management
