    Offers a lot for a smaller company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsGreat work/life balance, very supportive of families or people who want to have a life. The company is doing a lot of fun things like family picnic, holiday party, kickball game, bowling, etc, and has recently started a wellness program with great rewards. Employees are fun to work with and everyone is very knowledgeable and flexible.

    ConsSome people may think career opportunities are limited because its a smaller company so their isnt as much room for advancement. But your opportunities to learn and develop new skills are endless because the company is flexible and always changing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unorganized & cliquish

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsOpen to new ideas, positive direction and overall casual work environment. There is a team environment atmosphere and a sense of cohesion among the different work groups.

    ConsOverall planning is very disorganized. No market research done on any plans and most actions are taken without looking at long-term effects. Very cliquish- fine if you fit in the group, shunned if you're not part of it.

    Good place if you know the "right" people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsOpportunity to learn new skills, different types of customers, pleasant environment

    ConsIf you push the status quo, you may be frowned upon. Seems people who kept their head down and worked as they were asked did well. Pay is middle of road for lots of effort.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey have their own agenda. Either you're with it or not.

    A smallish company with a lot to offer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsWiden is a small company which means each person can contribute based on their strengths. People work across departments. You don't have to go through a lot of red tape to have your ideas heard. People are encouraged to learn and grow. Benefits are competitive. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.

    ConsSmall companies can't offer long career ladders. You might be in the same job for years with the same title. But that doesn't mean that you arent learning and growing everyday. If you want the title change, a small company won't be a fit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key in any organization.

    Nice place to work. Unstable.

    Image Assembly (Former Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsGreat pay.
    Flexible.
    Great group of people.

    ConsVery unstable.
    Very busy at times. Painfully slow at times. Hours were cut, then laid off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease allow some movement within the company. You had bright people there that you just let go instead of giving them opportunities elsewhere.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
