    Cons

    - Employee appraisal / career development process could be more structured

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more structured appraisals / career development processes in place but avoid the bureaucracy this involves in many companies. Keep friendly, flexible atmostphere in place as company grows.

    I worked at WCN

    Pros

    Friendly
    Relaxed working hours
    Working from home
    Relaxed dress code
    Bonus (only in a heavily profitable year)
    A good way to get 'foot in the door' in a software house environment
    No pressure

    Cons

    No training
    No appraisals
    Lack of professionalism in dealings with colleagues
    Dress code is too relaxed
    Most staff have a total disrespect for management + company procedure/policy
    Pay is poor compared to the market
    The company employs weak people and seems to do nothing about them
    Technical department are difficult to deal with, say no to everything..
    Senior staff don't take accountability when things go wrong

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff require a structured environment to work in. This means good training, appraisals and a vision of where they are going. Everyone disagrees with the way things are run and this leads to a real negative feel about the place. Pay people better, get rid of the rubbish and re-set a level of discipline and productivity will increase.

    Current Employee - Consulting

    I have been working at WCN

    Pros

    - Interesting work
    - Somewhat intelligent people
    - Opportunity to grow
    - Focus on results
    - Fast paced
    - Equity

    Cons

    - Poor management
    - Work can be exhausting with little reward in the form of higher compensation
    - No balance, same cases over and over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to get your act together and provide everyone with more opportunities to grow. You don't know anything and when someone tries to correct you're thinking, (politely) the general response is not to tell them they are wrong!
