    Former Employee - Project Manager in Dublin, OH

    I worked at WD Partners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great teams, great people with a comfortable office culture.

    Cons

    More work is taken on or agreed to than there are resources for which lead to an incredible amount of persistent overtime. There is a lot of what appears to be say yes now and figure it out later.

    Pros

    Some great people to work with.

    Cons

    Cliquey, PM's removed from team's process. Layoffs happen every four months or so. No room for growth. Coworkers very concerned about everyone's business. Morale LOW. No raises or bonuses.

    I have been working at WD Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people here, and some great clients too. WD uses their reputation in the industry to get involved with many substantial and influential clients in the retail industry.

    Cons

    Management and corporate structure seems to vary based on whatever the latest book is on the nightstand of the CEO. Too often, they rely on their reputation in the industry to bring in new business, but unfortunately, in a competitive market, that's not going to be enough. In a competitive RFP, WD will usually be the highest quote, and when the projects is awarded to someone else, the feeling is, "well, that client is missing out. We're better then those other guys, but they just don't know it.". Hiring sprees and significant reductions in force are common place depending on forecasted business, which makes it a very unstable environment to work. Salaries are not competitive, but you are supposed to accept this to work at such a prestigious company.

    "pretentious leadership, under-appreciated work force"

    I have been working at WD Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    WD can inspire your mind and expose you to new industries. Great people do work here, and you will learn a lot. I think management is making an effort to use more modern management styles, but implementation is poor, and not sure why. Also benefits are good, although not like a tech company would be. The office is in a great location if you don't want to work downtown.

    Cons

    Poor moral and they under-pay. Don't expect significant raises. I wouldn't stay long at entry level, or you'll be discrediting yourself and losing a lot of money in the long run.
