    I worked at CWS full-time

    Pros

    The company culture is truly drama-free, the employees work together well and are all hard-working, the owner and all workers strongly believe in having a good work-life balance, and the company as a whole is willing to be innovative and take risks in trying new things to benefit the employees. I've had other marketing internships in which I didn't do work that would better my skills, but at CWS I got to take part and help in meaningful ways.

    Cons

    The company is small, so there are some limits on advancement opportunities, but as the company grows so will the opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! It was a great experience!

    Pros

    CWS provides a comfortable, trusting and fun environment for it's employees. Our team works and plays well together. There is a lot of schedule flexibility, approachable management, trust and reliability. There are many perks to working at CWS such as monthly massages, monthly happy hour gatherings, weekly snacks, endless variety of coffee, bi-weekly lunches provided, awards and acknowledgment, Foosball, company outings and lots and lots of laughter!

    Cons

    Occasionally parking can be an issue

    I have been working at CWS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Seems like there is nothing we can't do for our clients. We are also given a flexible work schedule that allows for better work life balance. The production team is always looking to improve what they do and how they do it.

    Cons

    We need to grow outside of Minnesota.

    Advice to Management

    I think you guys are to lenient on your workers. There should be more consequences for not adhering to company policies.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment. Healthy working relationships and an environment that foster that. Well respected in the community. Owner is involved. Produces a great product. Always evolving. Overall feeling of happiness and optimism in the workplace. Owner welcomes suggestions. They provide snacks, buy lunches sometimes and we get massages once a month.

    Cons

    Small company with less than 20 employees, although there is room for advancement, there's not as much as a big company.

    Advice to Management

    There's not alot of issues, in my opinion, but my advice would be to continue to listen to employees. Provide more training opportunities and always find ways to show appreciation.

    Since 2012, we've worked very hard to make CWS a fun place to work (and play). We now do employee happiness surveys, have regular company outing (ie: Thirsty Thursdays, etc). Thanks for the ... More
