    I have been working at WDM Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free coffee, nice and helpful co-workers. Iv'e heard a lot of negative things about the company in different locations but the Beverly office isn't bad at all. They make good money if they do their job right.

    Cons

    You have to make lots of calls. They put pressure on you to do well.

    I worked at WDM Group as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good IT department. People are nice. Friendly and social atmosphere.

    Cons

    Low pay, high turnover, CEO and owner are out of touch with reality. Revenue/sales model is deceitful and short sighted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to reinvent the wheel and focus on what you already have going on and how to make it better.

    I have been working at WDM Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Like a lot of staff here I have been working for WDMGroup for nearly 7 years. I started on the first run of the ladder and had the opportunity to work my way up to Senior Management and was also offered the opportunity to work overseas. A good positive atmosphere and for those that want to achieve and be successful they also offer uncapped commissions, can't grumble with that!

    Cons

    A complex Sales Process but everything offered is attainable. Finding the right staff can only make this company stronger...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop brands and recognition

    I have been working at WDM Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Goal oriented staff
    Innovative
    Freedom to experiment
    Lots of opportunity for the right candidate
    cohesive, tight group of employees

    I started off as an intern and was given the opportunity to grow into the group's marketing manager. I have gained invaluable experience and am thankful for the experience I was given while with WDM Group.

    Cons

    The company is young and flexible and changes quickly. It would be frustrating for a candidate that could not adapt just as quickly.

    Pros

    I have been working for the WDM Group for many years and whilst the road has been quite winding over the last couple of years, it is great to see the company finally emerging from its tough times with positive energy and a very motivated management team.

    Cons

    The company is constantly evolving and creating new generation products so you have to be prepared to change with it and not stand still - this is the internet age and technology is moving fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Developing a team culture in management is crucial to future success

    I have been working at WDM Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Considerable work has been accomplished in the past few month to restructure, re-organize and generally improve all aspects of this business (financially, operationally, personnel / human resources, and even the sales process).

    Cons

    There is still much to be done to tranform this business into the first-class organization it aims to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course and don't get distracted by the noise. If you can't change the people, then change the people...
