    Pros

    TMW has a great work environment and the new office is really nice. Compensation is very competitive with a really good vacation accrual program.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are in their position because of time at the company not because of their ability to manage.

    Pros

    Pay can be competitive. Good PTO policy and health plan. Telecommuting available.

    Cons

    Some long-time employees can be difficult to work with and seem reluctant to change to newer methodologies. Don't expect a raise when you get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time looking to keep existing employees instead of concentrating on attracting new homes alone.

    Pros

    Most of the people that I work with directly are supportive and helpful; I can't say there is anyone I completely dislike or don't get along with. The benefits are okay, and the physical work environment is decent.

    Cons

    The workload is intense. Even when things don't work (often due to elements outside of our control), we are still expected to meet deadlines. We often don't receive the support that we need from members of other groups (frequently due to their own workload), and are left to our own devices to solve problems. Funding for outside training opportunities is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Please put quality as the primary focus - this includes setting and maintaining minimum standards when hiring employees. Having to clean up or compensate for the mistakes of others sets us all back.

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Flexible hours
    Generous Vacation
    Management is mostly cueless and will not question what they don't understand (which is a lot)

    Cons

    Management seems to be in their positions because they are friends with each other outside of work and have been at TMW for a long time, not because they are qualified
    Barely any chance for moving up since managers will never leave
    Trying to improve anything is blocked at all turns by management's incompetence and an unwillingness to learn anything new
    Hard work is not valued unless your manager gets the credit and you will be criticized when it is pointed they do not understand something
    Employees of all skill level are seen as easily replaceable
    Extreme double-standards for employees that buddy-up with management
    Yearly reviews are a joke, only used to point out flaws (very specific ones without any mention of how to fix/resolve them) to justify bare minimum raises

    Advice to Management

    You need to be open to learning new things and allow your employees to use their strengths. Many people leave since they are stifled and are left feeling like little more then worker drones.

    Pros

    The Pros are they offer an employee stock option plan, gym membership and classes, casual dress everyday and casual environment (ping pong and pool) and encourage wellness by providing complimentary green snacks weekly.

    Cons

    The Cons are recent leadership changes do not have the skills or aptitude to excel in those positions and they lack vision and influence. Current new leadership is an "ole boy's club" and women are seriously undervalued within the Company and consistently get overlooked for management and promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and specifically women in management rolls; and promote them.

    Pros

    Some interesting co-workers make it a fun environment. It's also great if you like the sound of people yelling at each other.

    Cons

    Bad supervisors and managers with no people skills, unrealistic deadlines, half-baked Agile process. After a couple months I was putting in so many hours that my personal life began to suffer. And even those heavy hours didn't satisfy a demanding team lead who was good at yelling, not so good at motivating.

    Advice to Management

    Your small team managers are little dictators rather than team leads. Yelling at employees does not elicit better results. This isn't the Army any more. Too many former military here. The "boot camp" training is an apt name for the first two weeks of training.

    Pros

    The people at this company are more than accommodating and welcoming. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, this makes the company a place to enjoy coming to every morning.

    Cons

    Looking through Glassdoor salaries I was disheartened to find that I was making less in this company then other interns despite being highly qualified.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest meeting with prospective interns or new hires to discuss in detail pay and benefits.
