    Pros

    Ability to move around to different sites and to work with Fortune 500 Companies.If there is a problem, H.R. is willing to work with employees toward a mutually beneficial resolution.

    Cons

    Since the starting pay is pretty low for an associate level, WL does not always get the best talent. It can be challenging to fill open positions and even more challenging to work with the people they hire. My Senior Account Manager had absolutely no interest in my professional development or in the fact that I was qualified and had the desire to move to the next level of my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PLEASE... put some women in manager postions. If this problem does not get corrected, you are leaving yourself open to the possibility of legal problems. lso, make sure your managers are developing the appropriate people and have a succession plan in place. Do not believe all of your managers want, or are willing, to develope their staff.

    I worked at Williams Lea as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you have the right attitude and keep the client needs first Williams Lea does try and show its appreciation. Pay was good compared to competition.

    Cons

    Not all sites are centralized around main office hubs and might be a little harder to appreciate the culture and growth opportunities you might see in the bigger markets. Culture at sites vary and believe that certain sites might be much more difficult then others.

    Pros

    It's a good place to work with helpful co-workers. The pay is great! Management is helpful when needed.

    Cons

    The communication with how certain jobs are ran were unclear among co-workers and management. There are
    no perks for employees, maybe a potluck or catered food that's for normal business hours not benefiting everyone's hours. Not much positive acknowledgement from management. The benefits are lousy!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be better communication with how jobs are processed and a lot more positive acknowledgement for good work.
