      Pros

      Great culture. Teams work well together toward success while maintaining honesty, integrity and humility. WWT has innovative technology advantages over competitors. Organic growth of great customers, partners and employees alike. Rapid growth creates a lot of opportunity.

      Cons

      Growing rapidly creates challenges. Feels like a small company that got big really fast. Doesn't always have crystal clear processes - however with everyone's positive attitude, work ethic and culture, things just get done.

      Advice to Management

      Stay on THE PATH, keep an open mind and keep reviewing feedback from the teams. Your people are the source of your strength. Cultivate them and you will win.
