Mission: Core Focus: Digitize and Optimize the World's Restaurants Core Values: Integrity, Commitment, Drive, Positive Attitude
I have been working at WAND Corporation full-time (Less than a year)
New Leadership. From what I know and have seen and heard about past leaders here - WAND has made major improvements with new leadership hires compared to who was here in the past. As you are reading this, recognize that the old reviews are justified (sometimes overly harsh and outlandish in some cases), but know that WAND has gathered "the troops" and has set a clear direction moving forward.
Lots of great people in a fun environment. Product that continues to improve and marketplace that is wide open. Access to leadership: can stop in their office at any time and they will answer your questions, provide guidance and are open to new ideas. Advancement opportunities: the company had to look itself in the mirror 6 months ago and make difficult decisions that opened the door for advancement now and for the future as the company grows.
The PAST and reputation. WAND definitely didn't do things right in the past. They made mistakes (hiring the wrong people, leading without a plan and allowing people to 'do what they wanted' - leading to a culture of entitlement, lack of cohesiveness and process). Getting over their past mistakes and earning people's trust is the biggest hurdle I see.
Advice to Management
Continue to set a clear path for the company and communicate that vision. Make sure to hire the very best leaders to instill confidence in those who have been here through the tough times. Invest in the products and product designers to further our differentiators. Continue the fun environment and training.
I applied online. I interviewed at WAND Corporation (Eden Prairie, MN).
They had me in for several interviews, took a ton of my time and said they would get back to me. I never heard a word even after inquiring. Since integrity is something they say they value, they should have some. Not responding to people who have given you time is rude and shows a lack of integrity.
