Does WP Engine offer massages?

Pros

Exposure to many industry relevant networking/IP principals Provides opportunities to learn/develop on topics which are related to the job Friendly and fun support team makes the work feel less like work Fair pay for those meeting minimum hiring qualifications Awesome stepping stone towards a long-term career in support/system administration Support management is phenomenal Offers cool perks like free lunch, health care and lots of time off

Cons

The support role is expected to temporary - this is mentioned from day one Pay does not seem to scale well with experience, at least for candidates who are well qualified Company values are held in high regard but regularly lost in the day to day Highly metrics driven - It can feel like the focus is on quantity vs quality

Advice to Management

WP Engine stands out from the pack because of the high level of customer service and outstanding support they provide. If/when that falters customers will stop paying a premium hosting cost and move on to more competitively priced hosting solutions.

Does WP Engine offer relocation assistance?

Pros

The company culture is excellent, the development process is driven by delivering the right thing for our customers, but at no expense on our quality of life and mental health. Over the last year the company improved a lot on taking care of its employees, bringing in flexible work hours, remote-first model and several wellness-related topics. We have a great benefits package: - Both medical and dental - Monthly wellness allowance available for refund of almost everything - Remote first model (only go into the office if you want to) - 40 days of leave (annual, sick, wellness days and floating holiday) - Calm+ Subscription (wellness app) - On-demand wellness platform (fitness/wellness coaching) - Self-learning platforms (O'Reilly and LinkedIn Learning)

Cons

Honestly, I only had reservations before the pandemic, where the company would require you to move to Limerick and had somewhat strict work hours. Now I can't really think of any cons.

Advice to Management

Keep supporting your employees!

Culture
After launching WP Engine's Core Values in 2013, it was time for a refresh. As we look to the future through that lens of togetherness, examining who we are now and who we aspire to be, we felt It was time to revisit our shared values that inform our sense of direction, and evolve our guiding principles as we head into a new phase of growth and maturity. We convened a dedicated committee of culture leaders from across the organization, broken into four teams, which each provided a strong, consistent vision of values imbued with ethics, concern for our customers, intentionality and craft, community engagement, diversity and inclusion, and growth and stability. Through meaningful discussions and many late nights, we reorganized, combined, and refined the output from these teams to then create our five new Core Values, which will continue to serve as the framework for our decisions and the way we hold ourselves accountable going forward. These Values define us, inform our decisions and are what we stand for.
