Company Updates

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.

WP Engine, the WordPress technology company, made a series of announcements today to kick off the new year. As we learned last year, every business, large and small is reimagining its approach to digital because a company’s website or digital experience is now core to its continued success. WP Engine is aligning itself to help companies of all sizes excel in digital by orienting sales, marketing and customer experience into three service lines: Enterprise, Small-Medium Business (SMB) and International. In doing so, these business unit teams will be better able to deliver on our customer-inspired core value with an organization that is purpose built to support WP Engine customers’ unique needs.

Pros

- Starting pay is fair especially if you have don't have prior experience (I started at $18/hr). They aren't going to rip you off with $12/hr just because you don't have experience. - Company

Cons

- Though starting pay for tech support is fair, raises are few and far between. For any meaningful raise, you would have to be promoted to a new role.

    Kind of a weird interview. Looking for someone with very technical knowledge. Pays under average. Go to a company who pays more with opportunities for growth. Kind of a weird interview.
