    I worked at WPG Holdings

    Pros

    Start-up style company with seeming potential for career growth & advancement. Opportuntiy to contribute to early growth stages of well backed (financially) company looking for a foothold beyond their business ventures in Asia.

    Cons

    Not sure how to do business in the Americas. No global presence (not established in Europe). Small product offering. Management has turned work environment into "good ol' boys" club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mothership (Taiwan) should maintain the "New Era in Distribution" philosophy. Current management uses the same distribution model as every other distributor in the Americas - without having the product offerings or stock necessary to compete in the market. Eliminate the "Good Ol' Boys" network.

    Pros

    Fairly secure job due to the fact that no one wants to come work here and management is desperate.

    Cons

    Good old boys club, corporate cronyism pervades entire organization. Management is very paranoid and extremely insecure which makes life hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers other than old buddies who only have their own self interest at heart. Company lacks creativity and direction.
