The well-being of WWT employees is essential. So, when it comes to our benefits package, WWT has one of the best. We offer the following benefits to all full-time employees:
Turn big data into business value
Big data is changing what you know. Today, your organization has access to more data about customers, products and systems than ever before. But you can’t gain insights from unstructured data scattered across your enterprise.
WWT can help you make the right investments in analytics, so you can extract just the information you need. We’ll start with a workshop to identify use cases that offer business value. Then, leveraging next-generation technology at our Advanced Technology Center, we’ll perform a proof of concept by augmenting data warehousing with Hadoop-based infrastructures.
A big data solution capable of scaling beyond the pilot phase depends on strategic planning. Our experts will build a big data platform, architecture and analytics that take into account how layers speak to each other, as well as appropriate configurations. This process ensures data is transferred accurately from its source throughout all parts of your system.
Following a proof of concept, our customers roll out with live data that is processed and analyzed to provide meaningful value. From there, we can provide training and workflows that help scale your big data platform across all parts of your organization.
Communication that fosters connection
It’s amazing what your teams can do when they’re able to communicate without barriers across departments, organizations and technologies. Equally remarkable is the connection customers feel when your team can communicate with them on their terms.
We design and implement collaborative architectures that provide employees and customers with quality experiences across all endpoints. Specifically, we work with customers to build collaboration solutions focused on unified communications, conferencing, video and contact center.
With thousands of collaboration solutions deployed, we've established ourselves as a trusted advisor for enterprise collaboration and continue to lead this rapidly evolving market. Cisco recently named WWT its #1 Enterprise and Federal Collaboration Partner, and we’re a top Cisco video partner globally.
Our approach speeds the evaluation, design and implementation of solutions, so you can quickly and easily deploy your new collaboration technologies. And our lifecycle services give you visibility into how end users are adopting solutions, so you know you’re getting the most out of your investments.
I have been working at World Wide Technology full-time (Less than a year)
Most companies talk culture. At World Wide, it is a way of life. Not forced on you, but taken on by you very personally. I come to work everyday feeling like I am a guardian of our culture-live it daily and set the example. My coworkers are the same way and the end result is the best work environment you can ever ask for. I'm relatively new and have never seen anything like this in my career of over 15 years. You're surrounded by people who also live and breathe the culture and are extremely talented. There are no barriers-this is a TEAM. My manager and my Manager's manager are incredible people who I can can talk to about anything in our business without worry of politics. LEADERS! They inspire me to be better through leadership-not scare tactics or micromanagement. The benefits are phenomenal and this is an absolute world class company. I am SO PROUD to be part of the World Wide Team! #WeDoIt
None. Seriously, there are none. This company is absolutely world class.
Advice to Management
Don't ever change what you're doing. And always remember the first "H" in our core values. Humility. We are growing so much, but we are all so blessed to be part of this company and we never forget where we came from! Our culture is unsurpassed-NEVER lose that!
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at World Wide Technology (Edwardsville, IL).
Quick phone call with HR followed by a very fast phone interview with the hiring manager. The manager seemed to love my background and quickly invited me in for an on-site interview. From there, things were really chilly. The interview was set up 3 weeks in advance. I followed up with HR to make sure nothing changed in the 3 weeks, but the person took offense to it. The on-site was odd. I met with 4 people in total. They would ask a question, then cut you off while you were replying. Each of them seemed very distracted, looking at their phones and out the conference room window at other people.
I waited a week to hear back from them, only after I initiated. The response was very cold and unprofessional. I'm sorry I spent the time meeting with them.
