Pros – The pay is great and the benefits are wonderful. The company is based right in Madison so it is an easy commute if you live outside of the area.
Cons – With the position I hold, there is a lot of traveling for weeks or months at a time. It is not ideal when you have other obligations at home.

I worked at WPS
Pros – Small company, so able to stretch yourself.
Cons – Like most startups, it is just a LOT of work, but for me, it was incredibly rewarding.
Advice to Senior Management – The product is fantastic - and on the back of the Women's World Cup and the 2012 Olympics, the core audience for this product will build and grow.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at WPS
Pros – The benefits are really good. If you enjoy repetitive work, it's a good job. If you're looking for good benefits and a satisfactory paycheck with voluntary overtime occasionally- This job is for you- there are raises at 6, 12 and 18 months (not very big ones) and if in the union- there are also cost of living increases. After training and a few months, you're allowed to request hour changes that may be more flexible for you.
Cons – After you get used to the position, it becomes extremely repetitive. If you don't mind answering an expected 60-100 calls per day and not getting off the phone until it is your break time- then you'll like it. If you want to advance or use their Flex-Schedule (10 hour days- 1 day off, 9 hour or 8 1/2 hour) do not expect to get Fridays for at least 6 years of employment. Most every promotion and these days off are based on seniority- also- vacation time can easily be denied if you plan a trip during a popular vacation period. Many people have an extremely negative attitude about their work there, which spreads a negative vibe in the workplace. So, if you are dissatisfied with your job somewhat, expect that that could very well get even worse with workplace rants. I really like the people I worked with, and genuinly enjoyed the job. It's unfortunate that the people I talk to who still work there ( in many different divisions and positions) always say, "Yeah, I'm still there...and I hate it!"
Advice to Senior Management – Before criticizing someone for checking weather- check some of the supervisor's computer activities (Facebook, Instant messaging other supervisors, how much they really do- some group together and gossip which is NOT professional)
