    I have been working at Williams Lea Tag full-time

    Pros

    Benefits start the first of the following month, and you start accruing time as well. Can be a decent job depending on the site you work at.

    Cons

    As a lot of reviews state management and upper management is horrible. You are basically on your own unless you get HR involved. Pay can suck, and no room to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Go to management classes.

    I worked at Williams Lea Tag full-time

    Pros

    Health insurance benefits and great coworkers are the only benefits. After the merger all of the other pros vanished.

    Cons

    Everything. For new employees, the salaries are well below average. You'll be doing the workload of at least 2 people. It's stressful.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter because the managers that need the advice will never listen and the ones that will have no power to change anything. Best of luck.

    Pros

    Very friendly co-workers and colleagues

    Cons

    Incompetent management who don't know which way is up. Exercise no loyalty and will always backstab you to save a few dollars. Willingly refuse to pay or give you any raises, always making up excuses as to why. No room for advancement.
     My advice is to stay away, you will be a lot happier.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and pay employees what they deserve.

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

    Pros

    - Benefits Package includes dental, vision, and medical options
    - Great coworkers
    - Good for starting a career, decent wages for the area if in a multi-income household

    Cons

    - Unclear directions from upper management, employees are told to go in one direction then the direction changes within a month or so causing mass confusion and errors
    - Large turnover rate, employees feel like they are numbers instead of valued employees, employees actively job searching in fear of cuts as the company changes its course multiple times in the past year
    - Employees stretch themselves thin to do more work than should be required for the stagnant wages provided
    - Cutting employees who were shared services after requiring employees to go shared services, and reverting to one-client employees instead
    - Employment is based on utilization and numbers, not experience and value
    - Not many opportunities for advancement, titles are changed but not wages to reflect the changes and increased responsibilities

    Advice to Management

    - Treat your employees like they are humans instead of numbers and dollar signs
    - Be transparent instead of pulling the rug out from loyal employees
    - Pay wages based on the workload and experience of the employee, instead of cutting valuable employees

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

    Pros

    Worked in the Tag/Creative Services area.
    Decent work with some big name clients, pretty good for right out of school.
    The people in the production studio are great and make the place fun.
    Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    They will under pay what you're worth (and are typically below standard) and expect more out of you than what they're paying you.
    This is definitely not a company for a long term career as they only care about having a warm body in a seat to get work done.
    No room for advancement and minimal chance for a raise any given year but will continually expect more out of you.
    No clear direction in where things are going within the company and a lack of transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Actually treat your employees like people instead of just focusing on profits. Listen to your employees and actually work on what they're looking for and you'll have dedicated people instead of people that feel unappreciated and look for any opportunity to leave.

    I have been working at Williams Lea Tag full-time

    Pros

    Good pay for the area, comparable to other firms who have different contract service providers. Stable work environment and hours. Easy to learn the tasks as everything is a template.

    Cons

    Lower pay than an in-house receptionist at similar firms. No room for growth in the company. Limited responsibilities. Mindless job good for a few months, not long term.

    I worked at Williams Lea Tag as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot at this company about providing services to a major client, you can network and meet a lot of high level important leadership, and for the most part at certain client locations the work isn't hateful. If you work hard and positions for advancement become available you can move up in the company. Also I've met and worked with some really great people at this company.

    Cons

    I've also learned that some people who say they are here for you really aren't. Challenging clients has got to be the worst con. You can explain to your leadership several of the client issues but rather than go to the client and express these issue and come to a working compromise. However, instead of that happening local leadership and associates are left to deal with quite frankly a bullying client. Eventually that leads to stress, loss of motivation to produce, and inevitably resignation.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your team before implementing processes that don't assist your associates. Get down to the root cause of an issue and come up with a solution to the real problem at hand. Stop being picky and writing up associates for small issues especially when they aren't being paid well. Start caring more about your associates the people who are responsible for getting the work completed. Upper management needs to stand by their word.
