    Pros

    Lots of temporary work for short-term contractors in IT and F&A departments.

    Cons

    Mostly senior-level execs on staff in IT dept in range $140K-$175K. Few permanent project leads, team leads, senior staff members, or decision makers. Average tenure is usually <15 months. Senior IT Execs provide vague direction, manage their careers, and live to interview and to be seen interviewing. They simply cannot deliver any tactical results without a constant stream of staffing agencies and many "approved vendors" who provide fresh meat to fill 3 month contracts.
    -------
    There is negligible conversion from Right-to-Hire contract positions to permanent staff jobs. It seems to be too much work and too threatening for execs to develop budget and participate in processing the HR paperwork that could result in building a solid team. WW buys employee allegiance by reserving offices for prayer rooms instead of 1) creating infrastructure 2), building teams and mentoring through example, or 3) pursuing interest in recruiting talent, developing staff , training, and retention.
    -------
    Frequent downsizing and re-org, merger/acquisition, management weakness, and market/ economy since 2009 has spawned a culture of chaos to hide in that adds credentials to WW IT exec resumes but does not benefit IT staff in their career building years. WW is another example of the “hire hordes of hourlies” mentality that is prevalent in IT departments of global corporations located in Northern New Jersey.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Lead proactively. Focus on building OUR permanent organization - not your NEXT position.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits
    Good work process

    Cons

    If not at main office in Parsippany then not much career growth

    Advice to Management

    Don't make rash decisions about staff that at not in the Parsippany office. These staff work very proficiently and put in a lot of hours.
