Pros

Lives and breathes company culture. Phenomenal benefits, great leadership, great pay. Remote workers have flexible schedule without micro-management. Get you job done and everyone is happy!

Cons

There are a few employees that have not bought into the culture which makes working with them challenging. 90% of the people are great to work with and really share the common vision of the executive team.

Advice to Management

Continue the path. You are doing great!

    Pros

    The executive team always says that employees are their most valuable asset. That shows with great benefits, starting with the health insurance.

    Cons

    The "Core Values" that the executive team strives for do not mean the same thing company wide. To me, some departments use only a handful of the "Core Values" in the day to day operations of the company. Also, advancement is nearly impossible. It's not driven by what you know and how you do your job, it's based on who you know and if you party with department management. Some people get promoted based on how far they can have their nose in their bosses butt (stated very politely). Also, on occasion outside consultants have more say in how departments are run. Enough said!

    Advice to Management

    Core values need to mean the same along all lines of business and through departments

    Pros

    After 6 months at World Wide Technology, employees are allowed to work from home one day a week. After a year, that number jumps to two and three days a week of telecommuting. It works out to working 2.5 days a week from home, which is, of course, half of your work week. Telecommuting is a huge perk that increases productivity, satisfaction, lowers stress and saves workers on gas money. There are employee appreciation days at least once a quarter, and there is free lunch 2-3 days per week. Also, as a single person, I only pay $25 per month for health and dental insurance combined. The perks really are great here.

    Cons

    Employees are underpaid and raises are extremely hard to come by. The high-salary positions (Account Managers, Systems Engineers) all have at least 10-20 years of work experience under their belts, so moving into these positions is extremely difficult for younger employees. It is a growing company, so it seems like there should be a lot of room for upward mobility, but in my experience that has not been the case. Management attempts to keep their teams intact, so horizontal movement in the company is typically the only place to move. In fairness, I am in Sales Operations, and there are many other departments that could be different.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more.
