Constant re-organzations & little focus on resource management
Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 18, 2018
Company is made up of many business units, so employee experiences differ. Overall, not a bad company, but also, not a great company. WK is a global company that will provide many opportunities to find work challenges. But the company is quite fragmented and is working to create a unified brand. I would say that my daily work-load is heavy, but I currently have three different leadership roles I perform. My boss is located in another state, and is very busy as well. He very rarely interacts with me. From my position, the company makes one step forward, two steps back. And it's a real shame, because the talent of the workforce is very high, from my interactions. Yet middle and upper management has not yet properly managed the workforce. Constant re-organizations, with new leadership, has been the norm since I joined in the company in 2014. So it's very hard to get momentum or progress on certain initiatives. Changing priorities are not uncommon in most companies, but for WK it's the norm. Not the ideal situation, but does create an environment where you learn to adjust quickly to refocus your energy in different directions. Again, not all parts of WK are alike, so someone else may have a completely different experience.
work from home oppourtunities, great benefits.
Pay is not based on market values/poor work-life balance.
