I have been working at Wilbur Smith Associates

Pros

They are very slow to let people go when the work slows down. Laid back environment and not demanding. Easy to work at, very slow pace.

Cons

No room for advancement if that is what you wnat. The word overtime is a sin. The benefits package is sketchy and no one tells you the rules unless you break them. Absolutely no out of the box thinking is allowed. If you are ready to pack it in this is the place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move into this milenia, adopt a real work process. Have employees anonymouslly review the managment. After all this is an employee owned company the employees should have a voice other that their voting of the board.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn, lots of great software and opportunity to learn how to use it and apply it right away.

    Cons

    Sometimes there isn't an exact task that you need to complete, that was hard for me to sometimes just float around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that all of the employees have tasks to complete and help them accomplish those, make sure they know what they're are supposed to be doing.
