I worked at Wonderware

Pros

Nice facilities. Free food. The job was good at first except the training was minimal. The product is good quality, yet has many competitors who do a better QA job. QA and other groups have great people, yet the management at WW is awful.

Cons

As a previous Review stated, if you are not a part of the cool kids club you had better forget having a pleasant work environment. Oh, and never piss off any of the original WW employees. They are like a vicious wolf pack protecting their cub. They will do anything to protect what they believe is theirs. The arrogance of the management is sad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shape up and quit believing that you are Bill Gates because you are not. You do not possess the style or intuition to have an attitude. Something that WW management forgets is when you are Management, act upfront, be kind, be respecful, treat employees as you would want to be treated. This is Kindergarten 101, yet seems to have passed by any management employed before 2007.

    Pros

    Great workplace at headquarter offices in Lake Forest, CA. Strong, informal culture, incl. accessible leadership team. Strong technologies and customer base. Sales operations worldwide with plenty of opportunity for travel and international business experiences.

    Cons

    Lack of empowerment within organization; lot of consensus needed from key individuals to make anything happen. No career paths defined and a lot of unnecessary politics around self-promotion.
    Many employees working remotely, incl. members of senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    COMMUNICATE - COMMUNICATE - COMMUNICATE. Spend time articulate strategy in specific narrow terms and then focus on getting everybody to run in that direction - we can do a lot more with the great people we have.
