    I have been working at Wank Adams Slavin Associates full-time

    Pros

    You will get a check twice a month

    Cons

    Company is going downhill. Partners left to venture into their own successful firm. No real leadership.

    Advice to Management

    You are only as good as your leaders. It's starts from the top. Your department heads cannot be antisocial and schizophrenic

    Pros

    I learned about a new industry and had a chance to put my skills to the test by creating the firm's first comprehensive marketing strategy plan, restructure the department, train new employees and make a positive impact on the company.

    Cons

    The management style of the partnership tends to be very old fashioned. They do not take to new ideas with ease and their general lack of communication amongst themselves makes for a difficult environment to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect each other and your employees. Take on more of a mentorship role with some of your team members that help shape the progress of the company. Communicate. The office culture tends to be very cold (literally and figuratively).

    I worked at Wank Adams Slavin Associates full-time

    Pros

    Laid back culture with non-micromanagers

    Cons

    Awful communication. Management takes 1+ month vacations. Little knowledge about practices and standards for certain tasks. Poor financial planning - heavy lay offs for employees that were there less than 6 months. Mass firings. Really slow and outdated technology (computers) and limited tools for employees (I often had to use my own equipment for work, even basic equipment like tape measures and cameras).

    Advice to Management

    Learn to plan and lead.
