    I worked at TWD & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of exposure to new ways of doing Business and addressing your Customer’s Concerns. You will not be idle, nor wonder how else to challenge yourself. There is always a new turn to handle high-demands with grace and poise, while keeping your Professional composure.

    Cons

    Extremely critical deadlines may deter the weak at heart. Once you can roll up your sleeves and get on task, the rest is a walk in the park - minus the boulders n pebbles that may trip you along the way.

    Advice to Management

    Continue Business as Usual

    Pros

    Great work hours and Employee independence.

    Cons

    Low Salary, Poor Management Team (top to bottom). Reactive management to contract and HR issues. Takes HR direction from client. Poor benefits. Management does not have subject matter expertise in all areas of contract support.

    Advice to Management

    Have company management audited for best practices in the industry. Talk to staff at all levels. Seek to make positive change to organization. Stop covering your butt and penalizing staff.

    I worked at TWD & Associates full-time

    Pros

    Always hiring (because they cant keep anyone)

    Cons

    They expect you to have all the loyalty to them, but will cut anyone with no notice. Terrible PTO/Vacation/Sick (10days total). Cuts your pay when they aren't doing well. Forces you to take leave with out pay.

    I worked at TWD & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Clear lines of responsibility, management for the most part leaves lower levels alone to do their jobs

    Cons

    The Accounting section has several fine employees, but there is one who is difficult to work with and for because they are always convinced of their own rightness. That one employee does not learn when they are wrong, and they have a pattern of abusing their subordinates and making everyone miserable. The three holders of my position at TWD before me all left the job after seven months or less. I lasted eight. Upper management at TWD are all competent and tolerant but are powerless to remove the problem employee. Any jobseekers considering TWD should know there is such a person there.

    Advice to Management

    Train all personnel on personnel management and conflict resolution. Remind all employees of the importance of dressing professionally at work.
