Manager (Former Employee), Orange CA – August 2, 2013
Pros: parties, great cfo and fun to work with
Cons: vp of human resource is off her wagon in better terms.
They try to sell you as a growing company with benefits, and parties with room for growth. Lots of work, not high on technology back to basic. Lots of politics, the Head of Human Resource is very good with demeaning to her employees and is selective to her own kind.
Not a good environment to work in, and for the owner to allow this.
You would want – more... to stay away from this company.
Bias/favoritism - good place if you play polictics
Analyst (Former Employee), Orange, CA – November 1, 2013
Pros: birthday lunch; nice christmas party
Cons: wrong people in management, not willing to train; not willing to change; bias/favoritism; underpay
W&B is a descend company to work for. The owners are nice but since the company has grown, they let those unskilled managers manage based on favoritism. Finance dept. is terrible. So, is IT. Managers & Director of Accounting are bias, favoritism, and afraid to change. Most of them are promoted from staff accountant; therefore, no management skill (clumsy). – more... Recruiting team is unskilled too, except IT recruiter (company just hired new skill ones).
Benefits: vacation-standard; 401K 25% match up to 15% of base salary; sick-6days; holidays-9days + 1 floating. Health insurance: they don't pay much for you (high contribution for you).
Compensation: not very impressive. No bonus.
Workload: new employees got hardest and unwanted duties; existing employees got easy job. Some have time to goofy, some work from morning to night. Workload is not evenly distributed. Unvalued new employees' ideas.
Co-workers: it depends on which department you work for. Some are nice, some are hard to work with.
Director of accounting: heavy accent but work hard. His colleague usually laughed at him during meetings.
Finance meetings: unprofessional. Staffs/supervisors brought cell in meetings and texting or checking phone. They usually are not serious within department.
IT: daily meeting/politics/bad management
HR: the Head of Human Resource is very good with demeaning to her employees and is selective to her own kind. She is director of HR, so she can have her daughter to work for W&B easily.
Promotions are based on who you know and if you worked on a project that went well.
Cons: wrong people in it management, no training, call you on vacation at funerals, overwork and under pay
Small company that went big but forgot the people that made it happen. Promotions are based on who you know and if you worked on a project that went well. For a company that sells health insurance the benefits are bad and expensive but when the owner of the company is the broker of record why wouold he care since is is getting the commission checks.
They – more... tend to make very poor business decisions based on talk not previous results. – less
