    I have been working at Wedgewood full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for growth since Wedgwood has many companies under the same umbrella. Pay rate match the market with very generous break room full of snacks and advanced coffee machines. HR is very easy to work with and they been there every time I needed their help. Management in the IT department treats me with respect and they appreciate all the work I did for them. They did pay for my IT certificates as...

    Parking close to the building can be difficult but they provide extra parking next to the art center.

    I have been working at Wedgewood full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wedgewood is extremely entrepreneurial, and is always striving to be the best they can be. With that comes opportunities for every employee to contribute ideas and work collaboratively to bring those ideas to life. The founding partners truly care about every aspect of the company and are dynamic leaders and decision makers...it really feels like a family.

    Cons

    Not much training is provided

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training across the board

    I worked at Wedgewood full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Company car. Work independently and make decisions. Managers and Ownership were approachable and listen to their employees.

    Cons

    Project Managers are expected to be a jack of all trades and the Company provided very little training and support. I realized they provided little training because the Office Staff wasn't knowledgeable enough to answer questions correctly or train anyone. PM Job Roll Included : Evictions, Cash for Keys Agreements, Auction and Off Market Inspections, Comp Properties, Participate in Live Auctions, Write Renovation Scopes,...

    Advice to Management

    Take a different approach when opening up new markets. Give your Project Managers more support and refine their job rolls. It's not reasonable to expect one person to perform all those duties at a high level for an expanded amount of time. They'll eventually burn out!

    I worked at Wedgewood full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice building & coffee machines

    Cons

    Stay away from this place- especially from the Accounting department which has a ridiculously high turnover! Do not let the pictures of the nice architecture of the office lure you in as that is the only positive thing about this place- it is not worth it at all. This company has no structure whatsoever- no training or communication when you begin working. You are left on your own to try and figure things out and magically...

    Pros

    casual fun work environment, everyone is friendly for the most part

    Cons

    very cliquey, supervisors treat you as a bottom level not equal, coffee runs, unnecessary errands, no advancement when asked to do more/learn more, some people don't know how to manage others, terrible communication between management and employee

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally, and communication with employees so they know what is going on instead of being blindsided.
