    I worked at Wyle

    Pros

    Wyle was a great company to work for. We exceeded customer expectations every day. Our pricing is higher than our major competition, but we delivered quality service. I worked for the Wyle Test Lab for 7 years, glad I did and very proud supporting many successful programs. The management team has solid expertise in what we did and they do not overlook an employees hard work and dedication. I LOVE Wyle. The test lab division was acquired by our competitor NTS, and I decided to resign.

    Cons

    I think Wyle made a mistake letting go of their test lab.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and continue to GROW..

    Wyle is a very professional company which also believes in its employees and tries to take care of them.

    I have been working at Wyle as a contractor

    Pros

    I beleive the company itself may be an excellent company to work for. The benefits are good and those in senior management seem to be understanding and willing to go to bat for their employees.

    Cons

    Lower level management is undereducated, non-people management material, and not knowledgeable in government operation. Promotion is based upon relationships, raises are minimal to none, the level of management is unclear, lack of respect from management and management staff, more time is spent attending to company issues, concerns, and questions rather than on the government work which employees are paid and expected to do. And the list goes on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire lower level managers who are more educated, knowledgebale, and experienced that their employees.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Some challenging work which kept me interested and motivated.

    Cons

    I had 3 managers in 12 months probably not the norm but from my perspective not good.
    Pay raise is meager to none, not even cost of living and when you do get one it is not even keeping up with inflation. That is going backwards in my book

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say you are going to do and follow through. Lip service is no service at all

    I worked at Wyle full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This was a great company to work for in the beginning. There was an effort to communicate important information to employees and to pay salaries that were competitive.

    Cons

    Micro-Managing is horrible. Any type of recommendations you make to speed performance or save time are ignored. You are told that now is not the time, maybe later. Later never happens. Salary growth over last three years was flat and benefits cost a lot more for decreased coverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This was a great company to work for in the beginning. As time went on however, you notice that communication from managers is very poor and there is no room for advancement. Offer better benefits and salaries.

    I worked at Wyle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wyle is a great company to work for. They treat their employees with fairness and respect. Competitive benefits, promotions based on merit, and full range of medical/dental, vision, 401K, and insurance choices.

    Cons

    Biggest challenge is that Wyle needs to expand its brand to all DoD and Federal Agencies. This limits job opportunities for those in parts of the country with a full range of DoD presence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to the needs and perceptions of the government task leads. Be willing to let the government propose a path ahead. As a military program manager, I know what government leads tend to need from their contractor team.

    Pros

    Many great people and interesting work

    Cons

    Watch your back! If you are not a favorite, you quickly become a target. Very questionable practices and decisions that benefit the "in crowd."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time learning and identifying the true contributors and stop allowing favorites to hide behind the talents of others. Extend the same opportunities to all. It is past time to get serious about values and ethics and past time to address behaviors...in other words, walk the talk!!

    Pros

    Standard benefits (steadily decreasing), average PTO allowance.

    Cons

    - Benefits such as 401K matching for employees in one business unit are dependent on the success/failure of other business units. As such, my particular unit suffered at the losses of other disparate areas of the company.
    - Management loyalty rests with the customer rather than the employee. The company is large enough that sectional VPs have little to no interaction with line employees who are viewed simply as employee numbers.
    -Very little room for advancement. 5-10 year, successful employees are no higher in the food chain than when they started.

    Pros

    The management is striving to maximize employee while staying competitive. The group structure still gives Wyle a small company feel.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy inherent in most large businesses has creeped into many of the local processes. Off-site employees are mainly left out of company gatherings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people are your most important asset. Show that in tangible ways.
