I worked at W3i Holdings as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Because its so small and growing, W3i gives you a lot of freedom to grow out your own products and create innovation. Developers get 1 work day a week to just innovate.

Cons

The desktop product line is kinda sketchy and the mobile product line is kinda lame. (both make boatloads of money though)

Advice to Management

Prioritize worth of projects and then actually use those projects.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at W3i Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some opportunity to travel. Some good people work there. If you don't mind not having a life, then the pay is decent.

    Cons

    Very paranoid work environment with a "big-brother" type of mentality. Preach about work-life balance but frown on employees that work less than 60 hours per week... They offer 5 weeks of vacation in the first year, but exalt those that don't actually use it. Terrible experience for me.

    Advice to Management

    Set proper expectations to prospective employees.

    I worked at W3i Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Used to be a magnet for cool and smart people
    Innovation is welcomed ... as long as it makes more money
    Lets face it .. In a small town it is the place to be
    Free pop ... to compensate for lack of bonuses

    Cons

    from 100 employees half are managers, directors or Vice Presidents
    no career growth plan or opportunities
    new CEO could care less about people
    Bottom line always rules
    No overtime pay, but no more start-up promises either
    Before every board of directors (aka this is the money we made for you) feels like on a chopping block

    Advice to Management

    Value people who make all the money for you...
    Once and a while take a pick in the mirror and see if you like it what you see there
    Empower people based on their potential, not your personal insecurities
