Underwriting Technician (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIFebruary 6, 2018
It is all about numbers, numbers, numbers. Depending who you are you get a lot of push back. If you are not making money for the company your on the "bottom of the list". I have learned it is all about who you know.
Pros
good benefits and PTO
Cons
management skills, fairness

Awesome place to work
Assistant (Former Employee) –  West Bend, WIAugust 24, 2017
This is by far the best company I have ever had the pleasure of working for. There is always room for advancement and all the employees and managers are great to work with. WBM offers lots of benefits to their employees as well. I only left this position due to relocation. I hope to work for them again someday.

Accountant I (Former Employee) –  West Bend, WIApril 20, 2016
West Bend is a great place to work. The campus is beautiful and includes a top of the line fitness center and cafeteria. Management encourages you to get certifications and then follows through with support giving you time off to study for the certifications, without taking PTO away. The employees are extremely friendly and it is easy to feel a sense of community. Salary is competitive and the benefit package is great.

IT Manager, Database Services (Former Employee) –  West Bend, WIFebruary 11, 2015
IT Management is not forward thinking and prioritized tactical issues that directly impacts work life balance. Has a sweat shop feel. My co-workers and associates are great and give 120%. It is a lot of long hours with no end in sight where management has a direction in mind and suggestions are not welcomed.
Pros
coffee and soda are complimentary, lunches are subsidized by company, on-site workout facilities
Cons
dates must be met even with defects being implemented, very high production issue rate that impacts production systems
