I have noticed that management tends to display favoritism when promoting rather than basing it on professional value.

Reprographics Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsThe pay is decent; the benefits are decent; opportunity is there to grab, although promotion can be achieved through kissing the right asses; overtime is readily available; it is a company that is currently growing world wide.

ConsIn times of economic turmoil, as has happened else where, Williams Lea has performed layoffs in great mass; first relocating employees, then cutting them loose suddenly and without warning.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to avoid meddling in the minor work events of the day. If a particular job is sensitive or more important, please delegate the overseeing of the project to someone you trust to see it through; and then only check in with that person. Do not get involved in the execution of the job in any way. If you do it will only cause confusion as to how things should be done; rather than focusing on the end goal.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

It seems corporate is much more… Advice to Senior Management: Change the culture. It seems former employees of Pitney and Canon were hired into… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

Going above… Advice to Senior Management: Use williams lea as a stepping stone for a career in management. Good for experience but not good for a long term career choice.
