I have been working at Wireless Advocates full-time

Pros

Very good wage compared to local and national average and it's a fun working environment.

Cons

They run a very lean company, so management doesn't just manage and delegate, they have to work like the workers and leaves them little time to support us. They work managers hard. Also software is very outdated.

    I have been working at Wireless Advocates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The kiosk is located inside of a costco, a company that knows how to run a business

    Cons

    Any attempt to list the cons of WA may result in a rant which would violate Glass Door's TOS. Pay, benefits, and working conditions (work space, equipment used, etc) are below anything I've ever seen in the industry. Senior management seems to have no clear direction or agenda. Employee turnover from corporate down to the kiosk level is incredibly high. The fact that several DMs, RMs, VPs, and other corporate staff have defected over this past year probably says all there is to say about the health of WA and it's future prospects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Graciously step aside and let people who understand both the wireless industry and the realities of running a company take your place.

    I have been working at Wireless Advocates full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Cool people to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is much less than at other companies. The benefits are poor considering the size of the company. Most people work very long hours and have bad work/life balance. Employee turnover is high so there's always re-learning and catching up. Senior management frowns upon telework which makes work/life balance even harder to people with families or long commutes.
