    Pros

    Just about everyone constantly works towards seeing the Company successful, fantastic atmosphere!
    Good set of values, practiced by senior management, talk is walked.
    Flexible balance, tools to work most anywhere, but can be turned off.
    Compensation stellar with significant retirement contribution.

    Cons

    Small company in a big marketplace.
    Career growth is tied to Company growth in many cases, often good to be happy where you are.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
    Great that people (staff) development is one of the primary drivers to success.

    Pros

    3:00 Fridays, work/life balance, "learning moments" and not mistakes, relaxed company culture, generous profit sharing/401k plan, all employees eligible for annual bonus payout

    Cons

    low turnover means less room for career advancement and an old way of thinking, not a young, fast-paced, or innovative company, outdated office space

    Advice to Management

    Take the younger generations and those with less company experience seriously.

    Pros

    WD-40 is a great place to work, the people collaborate well and are very flexible. They have excellent values and don't play politics as much as other companies. I liked the straighforward culture.

    Cons

    its a smaller company so there are less opportunities to move up in the organization.

    Pros

    Great brands and great people drive enthusiasm and commitment to team success. Opportunities to grow and learn and thrive.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to "telecommute." Lean machine that can contribute to increased stress levels in terms of workload.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more people to challenge the status quo. Enhance "formal" tactical job training or loudly promote "learn by doing."

    Pros

    WD-40 Company, a gem in today's rough economy where I have been fortunate enough to obtain a wonderful position that I love. This is the first company I have been to where you can tell everyone is interested in protecting the product AND each other. I feel very valued and equally value my team.

    Great things about working here:

    - All are willing to teach you if you're open to learn.
    - Bright minds are a plenty.
    - TEAM is not just stated, it is practiced.
    - If you show your commitment you will be openly appreciated.

    Cons

    There are stress hurdles, but what new position doesn't hold some of those?

    Advice to Management

    Management here is wonderful so far. I really enjoy being here. It's a great fit.
