    I have been working at Workforce Insight full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Our market opportunity is huge, largely due to the fact that we have extremely talented, hard-working employees at all levels of the company. I'm proud to be a part of a company that our customers appreciate as much as they do.

    Cons

    Working remotely is not for everyone. You have to be self-driven and make an attempt to connect with others. Most people are great at taking advantage of this but not all.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on career development and developing managers.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to impact service offerings and client goals. Work is interesting and innovation is encouraged.

    Work remotely when not traveling. Most people seem to do it the right way and it's really great to not have to commute on a daily basis and work in whatever clothe you want.

    Cons

    Leadership talks a big game but don't follow through on commitments and are ONLY concerned with cutting costs, including headcount, comp, benefits, and even office supplies.

    Talent is a major problem. Many EEs aren't held accountable bc of the current culture. EEs quitting or being fired has made a huge, negative impact. Current leadership acts like it's a non issue despite customer and EE feedback.

    I also agree with a previous reviewer that noticed some reviews that look fake.

    Advice to Management

    Our single focus on cost reduction isn't working. Start using incentives so people are rewarded financially. Current bonus amounts and program are awful.

    With no accountability or incentives, there are employees that flat out don't do things asked by the client or the project leader(s). Bad attitudes as well.

    Finally, make sure that we all understand how revenue comes in the door. Clients are the customer of consultants, and consultants need to be the customer of Sales Ops, HR, etc.

    Pros

    Some good people there. Some of the team are genuine and great to work with. Company has withstood some very hard times last couple years.

    Cons

    Exec team are dishonest and disloyal. Tough group to work for. They like to do whatever it takes to look good to investors but could give a crap about their team.

    Advice to Management

    Not going to waste my time here. They are too arrogant to listen

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

    Pros

    Company gives a good first impression. Everyone is remote except a few in Denver. 401k benefit is great.

    Cons

    You must have worked with the training manager in the past or will not succeed. Poor onboarding/no actual training make for a strange experience. Meeting in Denver was a series of client calls interspersed with some training. Complains that people don't want to include training in proposals, but may not want to work with that manager. She complains about their largest client who contracts WFI on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Onboarding via Skype via 2 solid days of back to back calls is not effective. Ineffective training in the training department is particularly odd. Change Enablement is overbooked because she does a great job and is kind.

    Workforce Insight is an innovative company always working toward the optimum outcomes for clients. They are very talented in aligning best business practices with company’s financial goals, which meet or exceed expectations.

    The company sometimes may work with their clients above and beyond the original scope.

    Pros

    Great company! Very collaborative - "team work" mentality. Communication by senior leadership is strong. Company is moving forward and growing exponentially. There is a focus on growing the company with strong talent - that focus will make all the difference. Strategic vision is clear and well communicated.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Continue strong communication.

    Pros

    WFI is a challenging, innovative company. The work environment is supportive and flexible. There are many talented people to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    Remote workforce can be difficult for some people. Work is fast paced and favors employees with some expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Keep spreading the word.

    Pros

    New leadership, great opportunities, great clients...heading in the right direction. Better sense of what the purpose of the company is.

    Cons

    Can get lost if you are not pro-active...not really a con if you have need to be engaged :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fun activities - host company retreat to keep your employee's engaged

    Pros

    -Consistent development & training
    -Opportunity to travel (potentially world-wide)
    -Competitive salary & bonus opportunities
    -Friendly environment with Directors and Managers who truly care
    -Excellent understanding of Work/Life balance
    -Accommodation and understanding of being able to utilize PTO
    -Great Benefits (401k, Health Insurance, Vacation/Sick time, Bonuses, Overtime)
    -Lots of potential for promotions
    -Ability to "make up your own hours" while on certain projects

    Cons

    -Potential travel schedule
    -Work on multiple projects at once (But nothing you can't handle. Can make it difficult to organize time
    -Busy schedules for managers may cause delays in training/development (But it is typically rescheduled and followed through upon)

    Advice to Management

    I joined the company at a point where there were a lot of changes going on. It seems like the current CEO has a clear vision of goals and where the company needs to be in order to be successful. Success of the company has the potential to also be controlled by the employee. There are constant implications of ownership per employee which gives a sense of contribution to the success of the company. Continue to listen to your employees (Both new, for new ideas, and old to find out what worked, and what did not).

    Culture is evolving and things are solidifying after the uncertainty a year ago, so this will come with time

    Advice to Management

    Continue to pave the way to the future and the leadership is strong enough that people will follow and become great.
