I worked at WAND Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

There are people there who truly want to do the right thing although afraid to as it is frowned upon to stand up for what's right. There are people who want to believe that things will get better. There have been some new people brought in the door who are desperately trying to help.

Cons

There is a strong concern in the senior leadership team related to the entitlement attitude, lack of leadership and vision, lack of integrity, lack of accountability in most areas, lack of teamwork unless pointing fingers counts, and extremely poor treatment of employees.

It appears as though anyone brought in who actually makes changes for the better doesn't last long before being driven away or simply leaving frustrated.

one department is the dumping ground for all the company's failures. This area gets beat up nonstop. They take all the blame for all the other failures of the company. They have been through roughly nine rounds of leadership as a result.

Don’t be exempt or you will certainly be working massive hours. It is a company expectation.

the building is disgusting, dirty, massive leaky roof crowded, no parking, parking lot in bad shape... Bottom line there is nothing good about this building except the nice income for the owners and I am sure you can guess who owns it.

Advice to Management

You need some significant changes and you know who and what they are. If you tolerate the behavior much longer you won't have a business. You really have no idea how to run a successful company. Your best bet is to sell while you can.
Your priorities of family, wallet, entitlement are certainly not going to help.

    Pros

    Very good people who have given their time and Life to a company that will never appreciate them.

    Cons

    Leadership team that is manic
    Ever changing vision... No one knows what they are doing or why.
    Unhappy customers
    Unhealthy work expectations. If your not working then you are a slacker.. 45 hours a week at a minimum

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and go away. Let someone who know what they are doing fix the mess that you have all created. Give the people how have worked for you a chance to save their jobs.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers (non-executives)
    Possibility of "great-ness" if they changed they way they ran things

    Cons

    Executives (mostly all Perrill's) are in it for themselves and don't seem to care for their employee's or value their input.
    Benefits are the worst out there by any company, they may as well not even offer them that's how bad they are.
    Their "big picture" mentality is always going to keep them from succeeding, exec's seem to expect to much and promise what they cannot deliver.
    "Key" management in certain area's are clueless as to what needs to be done or how to create successful processes.

    Advice to Management

    This company depends to much on the "higher up's" and not enough on the people who make a difference. Layoff's and firing's seem to be a staple in what your company is all about; which is a shame because if you gave people enough time you would be bound for greatness!
    Over my time there I have saw many come and many go. There are people who should have been offered incentive to stay, positions that were eliminated that were needed and would have made a world of good, and big layoff's in area's where they couldn't be afforded.
    In my opinion you hold on to some employee's because of "loyalty" (HR for example) when those hours could be cut. Because it's family owned you pay yourselves enormous salaries, when if you took a cut yourself you could keep some of those "key" people and not have to let others go.
    It is sad to say that this is not a company to work for if you are looking for stability as the sad truth is you probably will not last more that 5 months. I wish I had a better review of this company because they could do great things, but they always let the good ones with idea's go and never allow them to grow.
