    I have been working at WET full-time

    Pros

    Management team is trying hard to make the company much better. This includes everyone in the company.

    Cons

    Hope that the new way of managing people and company will continue. People tent to go back to their old habits and forget what they learned. This needs to stop from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Top manegement team needs to be an example to others in the company. They cannot expect the change without them changing first.

    Pros

    Nice campus. There aren't enough nice things to say for 20 words necessary. Good coffee machine... fun gym... some nice coworkers

    Cons

    They don't pay employees or sub contractors on time. They go after actions to not pay them at all. The "caveat emptor" review isn't even meaningful because it assumes you get pay checks for the work you put in.

    Advice to Management

    You should pay your employees and subcontractors

    Pros

    Looks cool from the outside. There are lots of neat capabilities in house that makes prototyping and building things easy.

    Cons

    Everything. Owner is abusive and blames everything including his poor decisions on engineering. Owner likes "trophy" hires from well known companies and then fires them for imaginary faults. Morale amongst employees is horrible and yet everyone is expected to smile and act like theit lives depend on working here.

    Advice to Management

    Owner should find himself. Quit trying to be some sort of weird mix between Steve Jobs and Elon Musk where you only emulate the worst qualities in both.

    I worked at WET full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Looks like a great company on the outside.

    Cons

    Management thrives off of abusing employees. They have no regard for their employees and exploits them any way to their benefit. Don't underestimate how this company operates. Just don't work there.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself.

    Pros

    Great setup. Design build test all in one place. Espresso bar is cool.

    Cons

    The high turnover rate and weak business agreements makes this place cutthroat and intense.

    Its pretty much a fancy start-up that fills its employees pockets in order to keep work moving and no questions asked.

    Advice to Management

    Pick quality people and keep them.

    I worked at WET (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gym, some nice machines. Learn how to run new machines, but you have to learn on your own. Clean bathrooms

    Cons

    Do not work here if your looking to have a career. This company already has its people set. If your new you will be treated like turd. Do not work here. I'm not being bitter, but I am seriously warning you. Do not work here. Leads are back stabbers. They will say and do anything to suck up to the production supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Change your management

    Pros

    Very creative place to work at.
    Most of the employees are highly intelligent and a delight to work with.

    Cons

    Top employees/management are corrupt.
     It is all about the aesthetics of the business, but once you start working their you realize the internal business is very corrupt and run by unprofessional/unqualified personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up and organize the management team.
    Get rid of people who are their for the wrong reasons, and start listening to employees who have experience and qualifications, to put back some kind of order into the business,

    Pros

    The company appears to be progressive.

    Cons

    Severe sexual harassment happens here.

    Advice to Management

    Enough is Enough. It's 2016. Stop with the misogynistic and boys club mentality. Correct the behaviors that cause the real reoccurring issues. Your company is so behind the curve it's pathetic.

    Pros

    Product concepts and designs. Lot's of potential once they get rid of the baggage.

    Cons

    it's a mess! Worst management I have ever seen. Basically Mark is trying to create his own Disney World at any cost. They contently send out product that has yet to be proven/completed just to get bid. They have models working for them in short skirts and working behind a clear glass desk. What does that say about their taste. Clients love to be pampered by the "First Team", but really, does a successful company really need to show breast and butts. Degrading for a female to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck!
