    Pros

    Best management i've ever worked under. Fast pace, but excellent teamwork in all areas. The push to do more is present and it is a fun environment.

    Cons

    oil and gas industry wasn't doing so hot a few years ago and some people in plants were laid off. Other than that, it was a great learning opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you're doing.

    Former Employee - Finance in Prairie Village, Johnson, KS

    I worked at WireCo WorldGroup full-time

    Pros

    - Global connectivity across various departments and sites
    - High-energy, motivated Finance & Accounting teams with direct exposure to Executive Leadership
    - CFO encourages environment and opportunities for various team members in organization to lead projects / meetings / etc.
    - Investments made across Operations leadership with Lean and OpEx background
    - Very focused on employee safety across all sites

    Cons

    - Indecisive PE owner
    - Strategy and vision unclear (likely tied to point #1 - PE owner)
    - Limited succession planning in place
    - Select markets served have been on a historical slump since Q4 2014. As with any business going through a trough, shorter term decision making is required and employees need to understand this. At the end of the day, that's the nature of running a business.

    Advice to Management

    1. Continue commitment to Operational Excellence
    2. Address and over communicate WireCo's strategy / vision
    3. Inspire risk taking, innovation and creativity across all levels in the organization
