Former Employee - Director in Atlanta, GA

I worked at World 50, inc.

Pros

Recruit and gather the world's top executives in highly exclusive forums. Incredible access to senior business leaders, celebrities. Fancy meetings at 5-star venues.

Cons

No structure, dishonest leadership, lack of career path. No HR department to look after staff members' interests. CEO wants to grow company at very fast pace and sell it... culture is therefore shifting toward highly aggressive junior sales team. A shame. Hopefully the parent company will rethink its placement of CEO to restore the firm to it's former self. If that's the case, worth a look.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

New chief executive that manages out of experience, not with a fear-mongering mentality. Invest in the junior team to ensure there are growth paths.

    I worked at World 50, inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Culture: The W50 I stepped into 2+ years ago wasn't the same W50 I left 2+ years later. Culture is everything and I miss it most.
    -The job: Every job is exciting. The access to thoughts (and depending on the position) and presence of world leaders, senior-most executives and celebrities of all types really inspire you to be the best you can be. If you want to learn, you won't have a problem at W50.
    -Colleagues: The people make this company great. Supportive and friendl...it's hard to have long-standing grudges.
    -Opportunity: As long as you have the initiative, drive and time, you can essentially take on as many projects on as you can--even if it's not within your department. Anyone can make an impact on the business.
    -Benefits: Really great, considering it's a small company

    Cons

    -Communication between leadership and the rest of the company is somewhat lacking. This leads to miscommunication and distrust. It was improving however...
    -Global company based in Atlanta: You'll have clients on the other side of the world, meaning you'll always be checking your phone and/or working at odd hours some days, depending on your job and drive.
    -Feedback: It's inconsistent, depending on reporting lines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build trust with the long-time employees, the new employees and everyone in between. Hold managers accountable for the talent they are entrusted with by making their goals and responsibilities as managers clear.

    I have been working at World 50, inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -CEO cares so much about what we do and the culture of the company
    -access to C-suite executives across all functions and greatest thought leaders in the business world
    -flexible environment
    -passionate and hardworking co-workers that love what they are doing
    -fantastic benefits (20 days PTO, 12 paid holidays, 401k match, very large $$ contribution to healthcare from the company, etc.)
    -fun committee

    Cons

    -communication can sometimes be challenging. The company is growing very quickly and is still learning how to effectively communicate across all departments (but this is improving as more time passes)
    -you're always "on" to some extent. If a member needs something on a Sunday night, you often will need to reply because the members are always first

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -be comfortable sharing responsibility. Not everyone needs to be involved in everything for the company to run. Delegate people you trust to manage specific business units or initiatives and let them do their job.
