    Avantages

    Enriched culture and emphasis on maintaining it.
    great benefits.
    good lower level management (at least at my facility, LTC)

    Inconvénients

    Poor middle upper management. I like my supervisor, and my previous supervisor and management, but the people above them are the wrong people for their positions. The executive team pushes culture and unity in there team, and they reach that goal through the boo "the Advantage" by Patrick Lencioni. However, the people below them are not committing to these ideals the Executive team is pushing (and they aren't bad ideals. They are pretty smart). I have read and reread the book and i find myself seeing the culture take hits because they haven't aligned their behavior with what the company wants/needs. They just promoted one of these people to a global level position. This individual has frequently played politics and taken on so many responsibilities, that nothing ever gets done and follow through doesn't exist. I spoke with my supervisor about my concerns about managements decision and the dying culture in our facility, and I was told to keep my opinion to myself. Because if the wrong person hears (my concern, not even fighting against the shift, but personal opinion) then i could easily get black balled and damage my future career with the company. If I can't even share my opinion (which "The Advantage" encourages and says is required to maintaining culture and a health organization) means that our culture really is dying, and the wrong people are clearly in the wrong positions. I've personally considered leaving the company several times due to poor management.

    Conseils à la direction

    Executive team - Take your own advice from "The Advantage". Our facility was called out in a company wide update, about management problems, and I still haven't seen change, a year later. And while it's great, to coach up and teach people to be good managers, there is a point at which you have to recognize that you can't force a horse to drink from water. We lose people every year, we promote the wrong people, 5S continues to fail in the ITC (and I mean fail. Not just struggle but fail.) and then nothing changes.

    Thank you. The Advantage is a great book and Patrick Lencioni is an incredible resource on leadership. "No bad managers" continues to be our goal. I'm sorry we appear to be falling short on this... Voir plus

    Avantages

    Like any good company WWT is fun and collaborative and founded on substantial core values that are clearly represented by nearly all employees. WWT has fun events like the Xmas party, Cardinals/Blues games, happy hours, team outings, etc. Love this part of the culture, this social experience with co-workers truly cultivates such a unique and healthy work environment.

    Huge benefit to this company is the health benefits - I have very bad knees and am undergoing some extensive surgeries and can't even begin to tell you how often I hear providers mention how outstanding our coverage is. A lot of people argue that they'd like to make more (who wouldn't), but I truly hope that is never made a priority via downgrading the extent of this benefit. Also, if the cost of insurance rises with our salaries, then we're really not gaining anything!

    Inconvénients

    Sometimes we are overworked and it can be difficult to have a work/life balance, but I believe this is a struggle in most companies that aim to keep the headcount down and the value high.

    The culture and core values are well understood by management, but sometimes they're just not the right fit. I personally have had wonderful managers, but I know many have not and say it's the single most frustrating part of their job.

    Conseils à la direction

    Assess your managers to make sure they're understanding their roles and feel they have the right people on their teams or are the right fit for theirs. I have had Mostly wonderful experiences with my managers, but it's not uncommon to hear others who feel very differently. I think the leadership at WWT is great and with time will figure it all out.

    Avantages

    The culture beneath executive leadership is unparalleled and truly a “no man left behind” mentality. The co-founder of the company started WWT with real values that he left written for us to follow. The delivery teams display these values day in and day out. These teams dedicate long nights, weekends, and holidays to provide the best customer satisfaction and truly exemplify what THE PATH is all about. It is dis-heartening to admit this dedication is now being threatened.

    Inconvénients

    Why is this dedication being threatened?

    Example 1: A PC has been working at WWT for 4 years and performing at Program Manager Level with the true character of a leader. This PC has taken on a hard ball banking company project without a pay raise and no hope of one in the near future. There is a large gap between associating promotions with pay raises; minor bumps in pay to reward for extra effort need VP approval.

    Example 2: A PM is now graded on performance for the project financials which involves a deduction in pay, pay that was initially agreed upon when hired.
    An Engineer is governed (at VP level) to keep utilization high, which concludes that efficiency for any tasks will work against him/her. It is in the best interest of the engineer to keep their utilization high, which consequently supports non-efficient, billable hours to maintain that high utilization rather than be cost efficient on a project and save money for WWT as a whole.
    These same hours affect the PM's grading performance on financials that will ultimately deduct their pay. In conclusion, Engineers are not seen as busy unless they bill hours to prove they are being utilized. So why would an engineer want to be efficient at a job? At the risk of compromising their utilization and losing their job it is difficult to say.

    Example 3: An Engineer Manager not being able to conduct interviews since all candidates must be interviewed by the VP. The EM knows more about the expectations of the customers and does not even get to provide input since the choice is at the sole discretion of the VP.
    A PMO manager who is not able to get assistance for his/her team to relieve PMs because any new hires must have VP approval. The PMO was tasked with governance, VP level request, on an audit process that was not fully baked however became a mandatory requirement, which continually changes and uses up non-billable time. PMs spend 45% of their time on processes and governance- which includes reporting Risks and status reports on 3 different platforms- Yet, PMs are showing a low utilization.

    Example 4: An office space performing multi-site deployments, made for 54 people is now occupying 70 and running 24/7. Employees sit too close to each other, which makes conference calls near impossible. There is still no approval to obtain a bigger space, since, you guessed it, only the VP can approve.

    Conseils à la direction

    Servancy Leadership- that is what this company was founded on. Your delivery services are only as good as your employees and their eagerness to give 8-12 hours every day. It is not because of the job these employees put in long hours, it is because of being a part of a company that gives back. A VP that can lead by example, instead of constant reactions that mirror the behavior of law enforcement A Zero Defect Policy that always results in a process for governance is not the way to go.
    Coaching upward will backfire- and already has…so what’s the point?

    Ranked among the best of the best, and from the inside it’s all true!

    Benefits are amazing. Company invests in their people, not just lip service. With annual revenue of over 10 Billion and only 5,000- it’s a powerhouse of growth and opportunity.

    Inconvénients

    8 interviews... rough... BUT it just means they actually take the time to get to know you, and you them. They actually do their due diligence so, advise to those looking for employment here... know your stuff!!

    Conseils à la direction

    Maintain the course and steady view on the strategic horizon

    Avantages

    Exec Board is a tight knit team that all preach the same fantastic values and culture. The remuneration is definitely competitive. There is great opportunity to learn with the ATC and the army of experts you can approach

    Inconvénients

    Recently hired middle management in UK are somewhat self-serving and do their best to show up well to the US but cut many corners locally. London office has become very segmented into 'cliques' Those within the same golden circle as the middle management are offered career opportunities regardless of merit or experience. Profit and Growth trump GPTW every time

    Conseils à la direction

    Consistency is key. Its great for local management to present IML if they actually live by it too, same goes for the 'mandatory read' books

    Avantages

    They have great benefits for families.

    Inconvénients

    They show favoritism to certain individuals. I understand every job will be like this but they always talk about the core values and what they mean to the company but in all reality, they use it only when it is beneficial for them to use it. I have been at this job for 3 years working in the same department and I HATE my job now. I HATE coming to work just to see people get treated like trash. They hire the people who don't like to come to work but keep the people who bust their butt all day while they are there and come in early to get orders out as temp workers.That doesn't sound like a great place to work if you ask me.This company has really gone down hill for me.

    Conseils à la direction

    DO BETTER!!!!!Take classes on how to be a better management as a whole. I would have thought going to Chicago for the leadership weekend would have helped but it only made some worse!!

    Avantages

    Great benefits and 401k match. Flexible hours and work from home schedule.

    Inconvénients

    (Work in P.S.) Loyalty to this company is strongly taken advantage of. Don't expect a decent raise for that promotion or a raise at all. Expect long hours and to see new hires make way more money than you do. Growth is limited. Don't get stuck in a P.C. position.

    Conseils à la direction

    Finish the salary evaluation you've been talking about for three years. Pay the people that have been rewarding the company what they deserve. Don't preach to lower level employees to talk to their immediate superiors about salary when lower level management constantly escalates the issue. Make tough decisions on personnel at the senior level.
