    I have been working at Watchfire Signs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Watchfire offers great benefits, compensation, and opportunities for internal growth. We are involved in the community through volunteering, donation opportunities, and sponsorships.

    Cons

    Some long-time employees have very few expectations placed on them by their immediate management and don't seem to be very productive.

    Advice to Management

    Require greater accountability from middle managers when it comes to the strength, cohesion, and productivity of their teams; it's frustrating to pick up the slack for people who are getting a free pass.

    Pros

    Very team focused, lots of opportunities for growth and training.

    Cons

    Someone rigid structure, could be a little more lax on things like dress code, especially for engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Make the atmosphere a little more relaxed, you'll attract younger talent if we ease up on the old time business practices such as the business casual dress code.

    Pros

    Very strong and engaged executive leadership. Inclusive and collaborative environment. Gotta love working somewhere where your opinion matters and you see smiles while walking around the facility.

    Cons

    Main drawback is not with the company but with the location. The Danville area has struggled for a while. It has to be difficult to use the surrounding area to draw talent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep engaging the employees. Continue to see them as your most valuable asset. The little things done to show your appriciation matter more than you may think.

    I worked at Watchfire Signs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Company top to bottom. They have a well deserved reputation for building the best LED Signs in the industry. The universal sized digits are brilliant and the Low Cost Broadband communication option is a definite winner. They support their employees, stand by their products and are loyal to their dealers and the industry.

    Cons

    The Ignite Software is not compatible with MACs, without 3rd Party software conversion. The Smartphone application is a good start...

    Advice to Management

    Provide better feedback and assistance to sales staff.

    Pros

    The company is very good about taking care of its employees. Employees are recognized for the things that they do. Watchfire is also great about understanding that the employees have families and are quick to remind you that you need to put your family first.

    Cons

    Some of the social events are on weeknights when some of the employees are out of town.
