WWT - Not bad, not great
Supply chain operations - Order Manager (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOSeptember 30, 2018
I could write a book on what’s it like to work here but I’ll keep it short and high level.

All companies will have pros and cons and all employees have different wants and needs. This is based on me. I put emphasis on hard work and an atmosphere that rewards. If you want a few sentence summary it’s this. This company is not bad nor great. They fall somewhere in the middle and excel in some area while lacking in others. They are good at what they do and that is being a business to make a profit by negotiating low labor and material costs while up selling as much as possible to the end customer. Sad but it’s reality. Until the working class decides to pull together and push back together as one this is how it will be.

A bit on the company from my perspective.

WWT is stable and I’m sure they will be around for a while. They serve big hitters in retail, banking, government and much more. They might(see my con as you will understand the might) also have excellent and affordable health insurance. Work/life balance will be dependent on your team and manager, not your position. I have colleagues in the same position working 7 hours a day and others 10-12. Same with management. Some are great, others not so much.

If these guys and gals would implement a rewarding pay structure and put the proper people in management they would really have something. Unfortunately the employees have been told this would happen for years now and it has not. I would have liked to see this happen as it would change my outlook on the company greatly. As it stands this place is not bad enough
  more... to jump ship immediately but not good enough that I don’t look for opportunities elsewhere.  less
Pros
Affordable and excellent insurance options but please read my con. Stable company and business.
Cons
Open door policy. Sounds great but be careful providing feedback here, Management - seem to promote on friendship and cliches. Salary, it’s low. About 12k below average. Guess this is why my healthcare seems affordable, I’m essentially buying it with a lower salary

Misdirected mangement

Command Center Agent (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 12, 2018
The company is good, has a good culture and seems to genuinely care about its employees. There is no real difference in treatment between full time employees and contracted agents which is really nice. Everyone feels like they are part of the team. The
atmosphere feels colaborative and even tier 1 agents are given a voice in department matters, including participating in on-boarding and hiring interviews.
Pros
Good people, good culture
Cons
Few opportunities for growth and advancement

Intern (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 11, 2018
There are some many opportunities for everyone, Some are Technology based and some are not, which makes it stands out. Its one of the best companies to work in the world and Glassdoor even thinks so.

Really a Great Place To Work
Senior Developer (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 3, 2018
If you're looking for a great tech job in the Midwest and can make it to St. Louis or already live here, this is the best company to work for in the area. Middle management are a bunch of hacks but there isn't a thick layer of them like at other corporations. Both the executive team and the normal day-to-day are amazing: there are really great people here who make it exciting and innovative to come into work everyday.
Pros
Benefits, work-life balance

Great company to work for
Senior EUC Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXApril 27, 2018
I worked on a temporary project, the work itself was demanding due to the nature of the contract but overall it was a great experience. The internal WWT engineering team was very competent starting with the manager down to the team leads and engineering staff. Really cool down to earth professionals who take pride in their work.

Sales and Marketing (Current Employee) –  KingstonMarch 12, 2018
Being use to the healthcare environment and helping people. Its a bit difficult sitting at the desk typing all day. it very boring. limited people to interact with just answering the phone create invoice or quotation and email or request purchase order to be delivered. But that is just about me there are other employee who love and enjoy their job 24/7.
Pros

Cons
Small pay if you dont sell to make commission

Terrible place to work
supply chain (Former Employee) –  Edwardsville, ILFebruary 23, 2018
at first they draw you in and make you think this place is going to be different, but you will quickly learn that the people there are very cliquish. Management preaches about culture but they dont practice what they preach. I worked in the office and this was probably my worst professional experience.
Pros
insurance
Cons
everything else

Thank you. Hopefully some of your concerns have been addressed as a result of "town halls" which took place earlier this year. Good luck.
