    I have been working at Woodruff Sawyer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at a competing company for the 4 years just before I started at Woodruff Sawyer. I hated my job then, was ready to make a career change after 25+ years in the industry. But NOW, I love my job again. I love working at Woodruff Sawyer, and I only wish I had moved sooner! The management is great, training opportunities are plentiful, and their support of us is the best.

    Cons

    I truly cannot think of anything that bothers me or concerns me about working for Woodruff Sawyer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing.
