I worked at Williams Lea

Pros

Good initial starting pay and you can negotiate your way up to 40,000 or so.
They have very few IT sites and they're contract employees with very close relationships with their clients.

Cons

The management is terrible and rarely in the office. They don't communicate with their employees, promotions are rarely given and only after the employees complete certifications which aren't relevant to their work. The management is completely out of touch and there are a couple of supervisors who are providing the daily assistance to the staff that have pretty obviously given up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Check with the staff to find out exactly what their peers and supervisors are doing on a daily basis. The knowledge management guy sits and browses the web all day and won't answer questions and complains when he is asked to do anything, the callcenter supervisor is very obviously burnt out, the deskside supervisor is a pompous jackass.

    Pros

    Money is ok, decent amount of time off, co-workers are friendly.

    Cons

    Williams Lea wants to implement big things but never thinks these things through or plans anything out ahead of time. They just jump right into the fire and the employees get burned. You make do with what you've got even if the company cannot provide you the proper tools to do your job in an efficient way. I've never seen such a disorganized company in my life.

     Communication was to be their key element for 2011/2012 but that's seemed to have failed miserably.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, they've been hired to do a job, give them the proper tools to do the job. Sr. Management needs to be more available and not hiding off in an office somewhere. Hire enough people to actually do the job and the work will be done on time and done right.

    I worked at Williams Lea full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Holiday pay and PTO time is good.

    Cons

    Very hard to move up unless you know how to play up to the right people. Pay raises are not good. If you get one it will be for as little as possible. You have PTO time but you must give 2 weeks notice or it is counted against you. Comunication is on par with talking to a wall but if the want to get rid of someone they will encourge you to report every detail you can then later they will tell you who told them. They will lie to your face and when you show them what they said, they will lie about why they said it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less head games and more professionalism.
