    I have been working at World Wide Technology full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There is an energy and an intensity at every level of the company that is contagious and I believe a direct reflection of the passion and dedication that the leadership team exhibits each and every day. I feel a tremendous amount of gratitude for the opportunity to be a part of this organization, and excited to do my part to contribute to WWT’s success.

    Cons

    Hard pressed to think of any...at this rate of growth opportunities abound but you must be prepared to do your best every day.

    Advice to Management

    The mission to create a profitable growth company that is also a great place to work requires continued focus, discipline and commitment across all levels for all three to be in balance. I believe we are achieving this, but never stop driving the message.

    Thank you! Profitable, growing, and a great place to work. The three legged stool. Must have all three for long-term success. Simple yet very practical. Thanks for the feedback!

    I have been working at World Wide Technology full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Health care is #1. It is extremely affordable even with the whole family. I have seen a lot of reviews of people saying that they see nepotism and favoritism, but I have not seen that at all in the year and a half I have been here. My team inside global order opps is great. We all work well together, talk to each other, and help each other whenever we can. I also saw a review that said there are no women in upper management...

    Cons

    The only con that I can think of is the lack of GHQ-warehouse communication. As a buyer I have to ask for warehouse requests regularly and sometimes it seem like they either don't care or don't have time to respond. The warehouse people work really hard and sometimes really long hours so I know its not always their fault.

    Advice to Management

    The receiving and noncon teams need to understand buyer roles better and vice versa. There is a large disconnect between what a buyer knows about our ordering system and what the warehouse knows. I think it would be beneficial for these teams to get together in a room and discuss and learn each others roles better to help bring the two teams closer together.

    Pros

    WWT has great people who work hard but also are fun to be around. People are very genuine, and this starts with the executive leadership team. There are growth opportunities, and the projects we are involved in are very challenging and exciting to work on.

    Cons

    Because we are growing so fast and our business model is evolving to accommodate that growth, there are challenges getting the different groups to work together effectively on services engagements. But this is getting better every time we work on projects together.

    Wonderful people! Outstanding health and retirement benefits. Really creates an environment where you want to be.

    Cons

    The bereavement time is extremely short. Three days is not appropriate for the loss of a spouse, child, or parent.

    Thank you for this feedback. Yes, bereavement is currently three days and I will share this input. Thanks again.

    I have been working at World Wide Technology full-time

    Pros

    WWT continues to pleasantly surprise me with the ability to be modestly nimble even though we have grown into an industry powerhouse. The consistent feedback that is solicited and acted upon by executive leadership is extremely refreshing among it's technology peers.

    Cons

    I feel that there could still be improvement within the coaching framework. The framework is not broken however I feel individual leaders and first line managers do not often reference it enough with their employees. I'm not sure our leadership offsite last year was entirely effective.

    Advice to Management

    Reiterate that branch office culture is the responsibility of those that inhabit that branch office location. No one is going to build it for them.

    Pros

    WWT, like any other company, has growing pains, issues/obstacles, and yes, even the bad reviews with criticism and negative feedback. Leaving a below average review with vague, unrealistic solutions makes it difficult for any leadership team to resolve. Fellow WWT employees- if you’re going to post a negative review, I implore you to post with clear and concise examples and positive solutions. “My manager plays favorites”...

    Advice to Management

    For Leadership: Keep up the town halls and surveys for employees to give their feedback. We appreciate your investment, time, and ingenuity back into the WWT people. For fellow WWT Employees: Practice the core values and work to present a clear opportunity/solution with every issue that arises. This company was built from hard work and faith. We may be larger, but we still have small company passion.

    I have been working at World Wide Technology full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Healthcare is affordable, $150 per month for a family, lower for individuals /// On site healthcare /// Work life balance is excellent /// Remote work day(s) are a nice perk /// The majority of my peers are great to work with and helpful / Business is good. The company is growing and should be around for years to come.

    Cons

    The operations management team. This has been said for years but no meaningful actions have been taken. Management & supervisors here are not leaders; often insincere, deceitful and do not know how to do the job they oversee. They have a pattern of changing messages that come from above to benefit them personally. Call them out on it and you, the employee, will be silently chastised /// Lack of career growth.
