    I worked at WET Design full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Team work is the only way this company operates. Lean methods with innovative ideas and designs

    Cons

    The culture is unique until the light goes on. Then you can not drink enough of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BIC talent comes from many walks of life. Flexibility will raise the bar even higher

    I have been working at WET Design full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There is no other company that I know of that has such integrated and cohesive teams able to dish out quality work within a set time limit. They hire you for what you can do best, and they put these unique skills to use. Often times, they will want to here input based on your specialty and have this input planted firmly into the project. It does not seem like a job, more like an environment meant to challenge your skill and use it to create something beautiful. What you put forward has lasting effects and the results are amazing.

    Cons

    Like I mentioned, there is a set time limit for projects, which is completely understandable. I see this more as a helpful push than a con because it leaves less time for procrastination.

    Former Employee - Interim Controller in Universal City, CA

    I worked at WET Design as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very creative people designing exquisite water features. Much of the mechanical features of the systems were designed in-house. Very enjoyable to work with such talented people.

    Cons

    Because most of the systems were very close to being one-off designs requiring many hours of development and design cash flow was a recurring issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the exception of the cash flow problem I have none. I felt that accounting was at the lower end of the spectrum and design and engineering was the main event. It was the art of the design and fabrication that propelled the company.

    I have been working at WET Design full-time

    Pros

    The pro's are the facility on this inside is beautiful although it is in one of the nastiest communities in Los Angeles. Freedom to come and go as you please and lots of young people bringing in ideas.

    Cons

    The ideas of the young engineers are always the blunt of any failure since there is no guidance from the owner or top management. Lots of yelling but no guidance. We just lost one of the best people we had in management. He knew his stuff and was helping all of us engineers. He was tough too but he helped a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose any more good people, stop pretending that this company is Apple or anything like Apple. We are not. Stop the revolving door of people. We fire people faster than any company I have ever seen.

    Pros

    The People, the Projects and the Environment!
    Taking my kids to experience our features and seeing how much they laugh, play and leave with happy memories. This always reminds me of our Goal, creating Magic!

    Cons

    Our Environment is unique and therefore not for everyone. Those that thrive at WET, are those people that have learned to transmute thoughts into matter. We can transform raw-steel into solid gold bars, can you?!?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is always room for improvement, even if we are perfect! :-)

    Pros

    WET is a small company where you get to know your coworkers and a hands on engineering environment. The owner of the company is involved in every product during the design process.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics at WET opinions are a strong influence on the design process.
