    I have been working at Wonderbox Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Growing tech company in an area that isn't high-tech
    Average salary
    Casual dress -- 90% of the time, there are special occasions where you must dress business casual
    Work from home 1 day a week, if you are in good with your boss
    Company doing well in niche area, little competition at this time
    Convenient location
    Special treatment/favoritism for Marquette graduates, much of management are alumni
    40 hour work week
    Friendly, family, work environment

    Cons

    Below average benefits, expensive healthcare, below-average vacation time and company holidays
    Favoritism runs rampant - manager "pets" treated better than everyone else
    Nepotism runs rampant - company will hire non-qualified relatives over other strongly qualified candidates
    A lot of politics between directors
    Legacy employees do little to no work and do not have updated skills
    Legacy environment will not be updated, working with 5yo technology
    No career path for advancement, managers aren't going anywhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and treat all employees equally. Hire fresh, strong developers who can take the enterprise system into the 2010's, get rid of dead wood who hold development back.

    Lack of team support.

    I worked at Wonderbox Technologies

    Pros

    Growing company and good benefits.

    Cons

    Honestly, in my experience, I didn't find this to be a friendly place to work. The environment was very cliquish, and at times downright negative. There was a lack of support from management and team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a new company outlook. Encourage everyone to have each other's backs. Assume the best in your employees--at least ask questions to hear what we have to say.

    I have been working at Wonderbox Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Occasional work from home, paid home internet service.

    Cons

    Certain management is aloof. Constantly making choices that seem to be made out of arrogance (because I am the boss) No direction, no responsibility is given to you as an employee, because your manager can't stand to let go of control. When control is given to you, it's not really, because he/she will micromanage every bit of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go already! You hired people to do work for you, SO LET THEM! Also, get over yourself, being in charge of people means you TAKE the lead, (giving direction) not boss them around like your a middle school principal. We are adults, that are perfectly capable of getting things done on our own. If we weren't we should be let go. End of story.
