    Pros

    The benefits are comprehensive and good. The company is structured. Work hours are very standard.

    Cons

    Processes seem very redundant and repetitive, a lot of room to improve and streamline. Doesn't use standard industry software that is available that could really help with keeping track of updates and speed up modeling. Management does not follow through on promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Utilize internal resources. Why hire engineers to be CAD operators?

    Pros

    My experience with Walters & Wolf was in Arizona and I understand other locations may be different. WWCS is a challenging environment with shifting metrics that will keep you on your toes. There is a strong emphasis placed on quality and the work can be cutting edge. You will get to try new things. Compensation tends toward above average and if you can demonstrate competence, the opportunity for advancement is there. Management does try to be considerate. They also have a beautiful aquarium.

    Cons

    A priority one day can quickly change the next with little notice; in fact it can happen with total denial management ever said different. Interaction tends to be cliquish and can adversely effect teamwork. Performance reviews can either be cursory ( you're doing fine here's your cheese) or bizarre (the outlook is bad and we have to cut heads so this is why you might roll); but they rarely happen on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After some reflection the shifting priorities of management probably gets the best effort out of some employees; but some procedures and methods could benefit with some streamlining for better efficiency. That said, WWCS is a great company unafraid of trying new things (just don't suggest them) and I'm glad to have been a part of it.

    Pros

    Interesting, varied work, with a great degree of freedom once you are outside of the office. Good people in the work force.

    Cons

    Some strange, mystifying work practices that make it harder than necessary to do the job on occasion. Definitely some nepotism in the interiors department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look outside of your families and friends for promotion and hiring. Some of the best people there came from outside.
