    I worked at WorldNow full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Admire the CEO. Great co-workers that challenges me each day and were driven to succeed. I highly recommend this company. Great Growth Potential

    Cons

    Marketing. Perhaps bad hires or bad budget allocation. Either way Worldnow has not received the recognition it deserves. It is an industry leader that does not receive enough credit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at WorldNow full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers were very solid and knowledgeable. Nice facilities overall in a growing section of the outpost known as Queens/Long Island City. General fair balance of work/life.

    Cons

    The company is led by truly one of the most incompetent CEOs I've ever come into contact with. A micromanager who is too focused on what his lowest level managers are doing than being a true visionary about his industry, company and technology. While a "workaholic" in his personal work ethic, his use of time is unfocused and disorganized. A dismal leader who is taking the company down with him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the CEO before it's too late. And pay your employees at industry standard wage levels. Managers and Directors should be allowed to lead and manage their teams as they see fit with clearly defined goals and expectations and not at the whims of the CEO.

    I have been working at WorldNow full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's an incredible feeling working for people that you truly admire and inspire you on a daily basis. The team at WorldNow has been unbelievably welcoming and helpful. The opportunities that have opened for me since starting to work here have been astounding. The company has crystal clear vision, motivation, and determination to achieve all of the goals they set out to make. I'm excited to come to work every day for a company that surpasses it's own expectations. This company truly cares about it's employees and the clients that they service. The leaders of this company have built a fortified foundation for this company to grow on. The work we do is going to change the world.

    Cons

    There's a reason that this company does so well, and it's because it pushes it's employees to work hard. I work very closely to the CEO and so the hours can be long, as he never stops working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! You guys rock!

    I worked at WorldNow full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Open environment makes it easy to collaborate. Casual feel to office yet very professional. Nice vacation/leave package.

    Cons

    Work life balance for some departments was poor. Some management came across as unapproachable. Change in HR caused ripple due to lack of professionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This may only apply to one department, however, be aware of the time your employees are putting in. When there's no rest your employees ideas, patience, and drive begin to fade. Allow your employees to refresh.
