Although the management at Williams Lea emphasizes "advancement from within", it will never happen. You will be stuck in the same position for years and nobody will recognize your efforts.

Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics.

Williams Lea
I enjoy working with Williams Lee and my co-workers there. I enjoy solving problems. I love to dress to empress with my outgoing personality. My typical day at work is making people smile and feel comfortable. I learned that all people are different and need to be treated the same.
I have manage people in the mail room.
I treat all my co-workers with respect and love and love to be a team player with them.
The hardest part of my job is not completing my task then when time star to run out my energy kicks in.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting the job done and see my supervisor relaxed and do not have to worry.

Good company for a stable position
Account Supervisor (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 1, 2015
Pros: Most managers are pretty awesome people. Great place to get some experience.
Cons: H.R. needs to be more selective in the people they hire. They could do better!
The culture is decent and the availability of different benefit plans is great. One you get to a certain position, advancement is next to impossible.
Some of the associate level employees leave a lot to be desired, as do some of the mid to senior level managers. I have often wondered how a senior account manager doesn't know how to use Excel.
The most enjoyable part of the job is if you are a manager, you enjoy being able to make independent decisions and set your own hours.
The hardest part of the job is adapting to a new site and/or manager. You have to be careful with certain people in management because they will tell your business.
As with any job, had some great co-workers and some not so great co-workers.
Overall, Williams Lea is an okay place to work but not a place to make a career.

Great Management
Mailroom Associate (Former Employee), Washington, DCFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: management, benefits, volume of work.
Cons: company in transition, poor communication
Williams Lea, overall is an good company to work for. The company is a Business Solutions outsource firm. I was placed at a large law firm in the District of Columbia. As a mailroom associate, a typical day included: package delivery, mail sorting, faxing, reprographics, and various clerical tasks. In the duration of my employment with Williams Lea I learned that the business solutions department is a critical component of large entities that we partner with. Management was exceptional and provided the best possible work environment without bias. We were treated as equals and our opinions were always included in major decisions. However communication was a weakness amongst them. My co- workers were productive but teamwork was a weakness. Arguments often erupted creating an awkward, and sometimes unpleasant, work day. The hardest part of my job was coping with the frequently revised policies and poor communication. Williams Lea and the work site I was assigned to were in transition which made my job difficult at times. The contract between Williams Lea and the firm was under revision and renewal. New policies and daily operations were frequently presented, revised, or omitted thus, creating a stressful environment in addition to poor communication and lack of teamwork. Despite all of the chaos, I enjoyed our company events and the volume of work throughout the day. I also appreciated the way that management expressed genuine appreciation for my work.
