    Pros

    The CO is a strategic thinker who works as hard as the people around him.

    Cons

    The product has several flaws and service lackluster, at best, so customers tend to get frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the software. Invest in your people. And treat people fairly so they want to stay with the company.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, great people that work hard and enjoy working together. If our product did what was advertised this company would be amazing! President is in the trenches and really believes in his people.

    Cons

    Massive divide between upper level management and working staff and rare opportunities to advance or get a raise. Really poor health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your good people what they are worth and they will bleed for you.

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

    Pros

    Currently there's a big push to build a better employee culture - new video game lounge, more recreational activities, etc.

    Company is finally stabilizing software thanks to building up employee base. This makes life a little easier on everyone.

    New executive structure is proving beneficial, even if changes are slow. (Note - John Perrill Jr. is not the CEO. WAND does not have a CEO - it has a President; Dave Perrill).

    Sales no longer driving development - company is selling features they actually have vs. selling vapor ware and being forced to build based on customer whims.

    Cons

    Low pay, and doesn't look like this will change any time soon. Company is regularly 15%-20% below glassdoor average pay rates.

    High expectations - salaried employees regularly expected to work overtime with no compensation or benefits.

    Old guard. There is an 'old boys' club at WAND which is refusing to let go of old structure and ways which have continually proved problematic. They're slowly being forced into new structure, but this is a painful process.

    Advice to Management

    You can't be an innovative company without debt. Pay your employees what they're worth if you want to demand innovation and excellence. If you pay Super America wages, you will get Super America quality.

    Pros

    Dedicated team members that really care about doing what is right for the company and the customers. Everyone there is very passionate.

    Cons

    They are going through a difficult stretch right now where they are asking for sales growth with only 1/3 of their product mix available.

    Pros

    Great software! Great Reporting! Great People there - they just dont seem to stick around long

    Cons

    High turnover, systems getting a little pricey, help desk not what it used to be - you can definately tell a change in the help desk over the years. Will say it has gotten better in the past year. Was pretty unresponsive a couple years ago

    Advice to Management

    Keep your good employees around!
