Company Culture

Toxic.

Teamwork

As much as teamwork is touted by BW as important, it is not demonstrated within many of the various "teams" within the company.

Company Culture

The culture is very interesting and seems fun at first, then it turns the environment toxic.

Support from management

Success is often based on debating skills

Teamwork

There are a lot of great people but the culture forces you to fight with each other.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Experience is not valued

Company Image

Employees speak fondly in public, not in private.

Job Security

Financially secure but you can be slapped down at any time

What I like about the company

It's interesting and they pay well

What I dislike about the company

It's a crazy environment that many people dislike from day one, and most others grow to hate.

You are encouraged to disagree but if you aren't a good debater you'll get slammed.

What I like about the company

Can be exciting
Very smart people
Fun activities

What I dislike about the company

The environment is hard to handle
There are regular "homework" assignments
The criticism is intense
