    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at WireCo WorldGroup full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The promises that are made upon offer can include five weeks of vacation, support for education and professional development are encouraging. The new office is beautiful and much more convenient to the city. Hardworking employees bond closely as they discuss the many ways the company is not what it used to be. WireCo pays VERY well but be aware you may be working late (9-10pm is not unusual.). The money is definitely there - it's just not a long term job if you value work/life balance.

    Cons

    WireCo is borderline discriminatory with zero leadership positions filled by females and zero efforts to support female talent. Employee engagement is abysmal. Turnover is crazy high and employees speak openly that they are ready to jump ship as soon as another opportunity comes along. Business relies on ancient systems and shifting sands. Processes are designed to support a small town factory rather than a global manufacturing organization.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest that you are only staying long enough to right a teetering company, cash in on your equity grants and move on. The meetings where the CEO is screaming at the sales team loud enough to be heard down the hall are non-inspiring and feed a culture of fear. Proactively and deliberately foster a respectful and diverse workforce. Insist on diversity hiring efforts that will minimize risk of litigation. Communicate and listen to your talent before it walks out the door.
