    5/5 Stars: Best Culture Company

    Feb 18, 2022 - Business Process Management in Edwardsville, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I heard about the culture through the interview process and everyone I knew who worked at WWT - and it's true. I experience it first-hand almost daily. WWT really focuses on hiring great people who fit the company's core values. The pay and benefits are unbeatable, and the company from the top down goes over the top to take care of their employees. It's a contagious culture and something very unique in a company - they invest in their employees and it shows. I feel valued, appreciated, empowered, and energized to work at WWT. Work/life balance is fantastic and the Executive/Senior Leadership team is talented and dedicated (and a lot of fun)!

    Cons

    Technology and tech services can be a complicated industry to learn if you have no prior background, so be prepared to be patient and keep asking questions - WWT makes it as approachable as they can though!

    Pros

    Non-warehouse teams really do follow the core values and care about their team members

    Cons

    Some warehouse teams have hired leadership that doesn't fit into or follow the company core values, leading to a pretty toxic work environment. Outside of these teams, though, company culture is alive and well... Take it from me...I started as a temp in the warehouse and have worked my way up to order management. Totally different world once you leave the warehouse/lab.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits Good majority of managers are good people who want to do right by their teams

    Cons

    -Personally asks all of leadership to post good reviews on glass door to boost company favorability -Personally asks all employees to post "constructive" reviews on open door, a privatized anonymous review internal site so glass door reviews don't take a hit -Executive leadership has slashed budgets, culture and morale down to a fraction of what they used to be to drive sales. -We integrate cisco and juniper technologies into multi million dollar server racks and provide all the services necessary of configuration, design, functionality and out of the box use for many Fortune 500 companies, but paying hundreds of employees for this level of work on our scale of production is far too expensive so we just recently changed all job titles to "production" in order to be competitive with similar job titles on the market. Literally company wide - Executive leadership condescending during company wide updates, Jeree gets genuinely disgruntled every time all the employees aren't loving everything the company does. Laughs about her "favorite questions" that come from genuine employee concern. -Company forces PTO to be used in every situation of missed time, being sick, vacation, car broke down, life event all the way to negative 40 hours.

    We support and appreciate our employees for sharing their experiences on Glassdoor to provide realistic expectations for potential future employees. This is something that is up to them to choose whether or not to do. You are correct that any missed time at work requires the use of available PTO (paid time off). This ensures employees are paid when not working, that shifts can be appropriately staffed, and for employees to not lose any unused PTO at the end of the year. Thank you.

    A Great Place to Work!!

    Pros

    If you’re looking for a career and a place to retire, WWT is it! This is the longest I have ever been at a company and the years have flown by! I am looking forward to many more years with WWT. The people/culture are outstanding- integrity, grit, hardworking, appreciative and positive. The Executive Team are humble and tirelessly striving to cultivate a positive, rewarding work environment. WWT actually listens to constructive feedback from ALL employees. They communicate frequently about current events and concerns, are open, honest and sincere. My coworkers have become life-long friends. The benefits are excellent. The learning opportunities are endless (if you’re willing to spend the time, ask questions and put in the effort). All in all, WWT is really a great place to work with a high level of trust and gratitude!!

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    Pretty consistent and pervasive positive work environment and culture. The vast majority of people at WWT genuinely care about their customers. The organization makes nearly all decisions on long time lines.

    Cons

    There are some challenges with culture in some senior leadership positions likely due to the combination of WWT's size and nearly entirely organic growth or promotions and the company can be too risk averse at times.

    WWT - Making new world happen - Why would you work anywhere else?

    Feb 2, 2022 - Technical Solutions Architect in Atlanta, GA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Do you feel like you aren't being valued or heard in your current company? Do you feel like you skills are going to waste? Do you miss working with awesome people every day? If so, you should come work at WWT. With great opportunities from the technical side to sales to sales operations and more. WWT is a family. People care about each other and work hard with and for each other. WWT is the best company that I have ever worked in so many ways. Great benefits. Great culture. Growing super fast and lots of opportunity. People don't stay at companies. They stay because of the people and the people and culture at WWT will make you wonder why you ever worked anywhere else. From day one, my skills and opinions were valuable and it has given me great opportunities to grow in many areas.

    Cons

    No place is perfect but WWT strives to work on any challenges and always get better. Needs to bring in more talent faster to grow. Standardize processes as we grow. Hard to really think of a lot of cons as I have seen WWT people support their WWT co-workers and customers in incredible ways. Culture matters and it shows every day at WWT!

    Pros

    Great work/life balance Very good communication with teams and management Company does seem to be very focused on making employees happy and retaining the best talent. Awesome benefits Very nice company culture. WWT obviously wants the best candidates but they also want to make sure you will fit in with the company's culture and values.

    Cons

    Training can be improved. It's definitely not impossible to learn the job; however, it's a lot of on-the-job training and it can be tough when you're first starting out. That being said, it will come together, but you have to give it time.
