    I worked at Williams Lea Tag full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only benefit to working through WLT was that I technically sat full-time at my client's location on-site, thereby inheriting the positive work culture and community of my client.

    Cons

    The issue with working for an outsourcing company like WLT is that if any issues arise with management or your work environment, it is extremely difficult (if not impossible) to get in contact with anyone in the WLT human resources department. WLT benefits heavily from not having to provide human presence for HR at their client sites, and it is near impossible to get ahold of human when you need to ask a question about your job, PTO, management, or anything else. Senior management rarely checks in to ensure you are comfortable in your position and does not make themselves available to answer questions, which is easy for them to do considering they sit in a completely different office and claim to be "traveling" most of the time you try to reach them. Performance bonuses are nonexistent for non-exempt employees, and annual performance salary increases are minimal at best (you can typically expect a 1-1.5% increase assuming high reviews and overall regional performance). On top of that, annual salary increases largely depend on how the region performs, not how you as an individual perform, which minimizes any incentive to work harder or push for growth at this company. My advice to anyone who is seeking employment here: look elsewhere. This company may appear to have a lot of "starter positions" to get yourself in the door, but it is simply not worth it due to the lack of positive management, human availability, and growth opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Be more responsive to your employees and recognize that this company exists because of--not in spite of--the many employees who diligently put in their time. I would also strongly recommend hiring additional human resources associates in various locations that can make themselves available to answer questions, rather than requiring employees to navigate a complicated online portal of "FAQs."

    Pros

    Everything depends on which site you work at. If you work directly for WLT it's probably not a bad place to work. However, if you are embedded in another company it all depends on the management team for that company.

    It probably pays a little better than retail, but it's also more stressful

    Probably not a bad place to start your career.

    Cons

    They started a new policy (2018) where they cap pay by position. So, be careful what your title is going to be, it really matters.

    Even though many of the WLT's clients are open 24/7 they seem to have a real bias against those who don't work "normal" working hours, like overnights or weekend shifts.

    I don't think these jobs should be looked at as long term careers. they would rather have newer, cheaper labor than pay for experience.

    Advice to Management

    With the company being sold in 2018, one get's the feeling that they current management team and owners is just trying to get all the money out of the company they can before it goes belly up. if I'm wrong, then management needs to prove that because it's pretty obvious with new policies that this not a company you can grow with.

    Pros

    Only cons is a steady paycheck. You get your paycheck on time. (Same in Walmart as well)

    Cons

    Let me say this; IF you have respect for yourself, don't want to get bullied by your boss and your client (you will be on client's site which is extremely stressful) daily basis and if you care about your own career, DO NOT take the job.

    The company keeps losing the clients in the U.S. and you can be unemployed ANYTIME! They let you go without even saying "sorry".

    It is a REVOLVING door and their HR don't care about you. People keep leaving the company. Even when l was working there, people were looking for other jobs. They are extremely disorganized. You don't get any training. It feels like you are in an ocean and sinking.

    If you are in SF or about to move here, look for other jobs. The market is pretty good for marketers/project coordinators-managers and you can land on something that you actually like.

    This was the biggest mistake l have ever done in my life. l refused another offer to get this job and it bombed so badly. Don't get dirt on your fresh resume if you are a new grad or in the middle management. It doesn't worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Account Directors...They have NO IDEA what is happening and don't know how to treat their staff (Account Managers). l don't even know how they even got to the job. So weird but that's why people are leaving the company all-the-time, left and right.

    Great Supervisor

    Training is almost non existent. They have a lot of on line classes but it doesn't teach you the job. They need hands on training.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a decent salary. Fire people who don't show up or you can't do the job.
