    "Management is the problem"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Lots of work to be done
    Your fellow employees can be hard working and loyal
    The management team won't know if you are working hard or hardly working if you know how to fake it
    The management team is slowly changing

    Cons

    Some of the managers do not understand what they are doing or the consequences of their actions and how those consequences effect others.

    They have lost many of their best employees because the managers get paid high salary, to delegate everything, including management tasks, to everyone under them, so the employees are left with no direction unless you figure out a good direction and do it yourself.

    There is no accountability for anyone not doing their job right, as there is no expected knowledge/training for anyone.

    There is no reward for being an overachiever, except becoming the work horse.

    There is no training, and people can be moved around to different departments on a whim, regardless of experience. (got a career path? stay away)

    I worked at Wintec full-time

    Pros

    A few great employees that keep you around. Not much else. There are no perks, free lunches, below average benefits.

    Cons

    The management is hopelessly unfocused and changes their mind on goals repeatedly. Management is shifted repeatedly and therefore there is no strategy or focus. People who are friends of the family are retained and other more qualified people are moved out of the company. New management brought in is unfocused as well. Work environment is predatory, you have to be at your desk or you aren't considered working. Sweat shop type atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan and stick to it. Actually review employee productivity and retain talent who do work rather than friends.

    I worked at Wintec full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of your coworkers are nice. They try really hard.

    Cons

    Where to start...
    This company has no idea how to do business in the 21st century. They have no goals, or plan except how can we make money. They are really cheap, like won't spend money on office supplies cheap. There is no moral for employees, because they really don't have anything to look forward to.
    Record keeping and data collection is almost nonexistent, and many vendor agreements are verbal only. The net effect is no one really knows what anyone else is doing.
    The E-board of the company is all family, so all decisions go through family politics.
    The CEO is completely ineffective and always defers to his mother who is Chairman of the Board.

    Advice to Management

    Get the family out of the way and turn things over to a real experienced CEO.

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

    Pros

    You get to know some really nice people

    Cons

    Management don't care about their employees, health insurance is not 100% covered, you have to pay some out of your pocket in every paycheck and when you take more day 4 days unpaid time off, they will make you to pay the health insurance on your own, ridiculous. They only give you 12 days PTO but management will give you a hard time when you request time off for more than a week. Don't expect work life balance here they just want you to work, work and work, no personal life at all. They don't respect their employees much, give out unwanted, broken RMA crap during Christmas party and make everyone to work and help out in warehouse on the day after thanksgiving. Work is mandatory on that black Friday and no time off is allowed, INSANE!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect

    I worked at Wintec full-time

    Pros

    Excellent and supportive colleagues
    An overall friendly environment
    Ability to explore and learn in a large number of fields and skills

    Cons

    Perceived a lack of clear direction or consensus among management
    Frustration over lack of accountability regarding delegation and completion of tasks
    Scattered and often conflicting goals and incentives
    Work is often taken for granted when tasks are more complex than expected
    Pay is well below market

    Advice to Management

    Focus the direction more and establish clear paths to singular goals. Management needs to work together in conjunction with employees instead of randomly hoping things will work out. Employees leave for a reason.

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Management don't show respect and appreciation to some people's hard work, they take it for granted
    You will never get a raise/review/promotions until you ask for, and you probably not going to get it
    Salary is way below market price
    No benefits/they offer cheap gifts (RMA returns) to employees in Christmas Party

    Advice to Management

    Show your people with some respect and appreciation. Good employees are assets of a company and you should know why there's so many people leaving.
