    Pros

    Very professional, well managed company. Management demonstrates respect for employees. Opportunities available for advancement. Benefits compare well with other companies.

    Cons

    Cost cutting measures have hit hard as Wyle works to stay competitive. Like any government contractor, most positions are tied to a contract with a fixed length.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut too far. There's a point where there are not sufficient resources to get the job done. This is especially tough on indirect staff.

    Pros

    The company has a nice employee referral plan and nice benefits in it's Thrift Savings plan. Human resources does an excellent job at communicating with employees and is very responsive to taking care of employee needs. Corporate leadership is very visible and communicates often with employees as to the state of the company outlook and growth.

    Cons

    Team morale and cohesion suffer here because of "Toxic" managers. Two-way respect builds loyalty and fosters greater commitment from team members to go above and beyond what is expected of them in the performance of their duties.

    Advice to Management

    Police your managers. Performing as a good manager includes much more than just accomplishing daily tasks. Employees arrive with the greatest of intentions to excel and to be a contributor in the performance of their duties. Management has the obligation to continue to develop and instill a greater sense of purpose toward utilizing these intentions toward taking care of customer needs. Every manager is not a good leader, and a good team becomes a great team with good leadership.

    Pros

    Plenty of current software projects to work on with a steady flow of incoming business. I like the people I work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes communication in a large company can be tough. Some people can get away with doing subpar work while relying on others to carry the load.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with employees a little more often to get reactions on how things are going within the team. Not just relying on people to come to them.

    Pros

    Descent pay, easy boring job

    Cons

    Felt like i was back in high school, unfriendly nasty coworkers. Made racist remarks, HR department needs training. A decent place to WORK but not to GROW. People don't move up unless someone retires.

    Advice to Management

    Train HR department, hold events to meet Staff

    Pros

    Flexible hours, worked daily with user community and was able to observe first hand software changes in aircraft for the betterment of the user.

    Cons

    Terrible Management, workers are disposable and were told this daily. New "benefit" leave/sick leave was a terrible combination and not a plus to the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating all employees like plug and play assets. We were hired due to our industry connections and skills in the aircraft.

    Pros

    Very structured, organized, process-driven, connected to multiple industries, overall reputable company

    Cons

    Promotes innovative thinking but does not support implementation of such ideals. Also, management does not support employees in need of assistance if it appears to be problematic.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a mentally healthy work environment by means of strong leadership qualities (not just management of people).

    Pros

    Supportive of employees in general, not simply beholden to the client when doing contract work. Great benefits, strong HR department.

    Cons

    Program management was lacking in terms of future scenarios, other opportunities within the company. Be careful to understand if positions you're discussing are 'current' or 'contingent'.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive at the corporate level at thinking about long-term employee retention. Program Managers may not be able to sufficiently carry the company banner.
