Freedom to work independently

Global company so lots of policies and procedures and red tape, usually.

Internal Communication

Town hall meetings, weekly company newsletters, things posted all over the building about upcoming events, and a BRIDGE committee that sends periodic emails as well, along with emails from Williams Lea corporate.

Career Development

Definitely lots of room for growth, very good about promoting from within

Overall compensation for your work

Starting pay is high, raises are a few cents to a quarter a year.

Office / Work Environment

It is an old building so there are heating/air issues, and of course the company tries to save cost where they can so the equipment and furniture is not the best.

Work-Life Balance

This definitely depends on position. Middle management is the worst, like most places. Lots of extra hours, working from home, taking calls at all hours, etc. As a document processor or entry level position, you wont have that as much.

Company Image

Have gotten a lot more active within the community the last few years.

Job Security

This company is definitely not going anywhere, lots of growth year after year. I wouldn't be surprised if they expand to a second or larger location soon.

Workplace Safety

Security on site 24 hours, all doors are always locked and all staff trained on how to react if someone wanders in.

Challenging Work

A lot to learn at first, but the work is not hard. Just very detailed and technical.

Inclusive / Diverse

Honestly, it's about as diverse as you can possibly get in Wheeling.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better chairs! We sit a lot. Improve the recruiting and onboarding process. Those are the first impressions people get and it is not good.

What I like about the company

Everyone is very nice, it is a good environment overall.

What I dislike about the company

Need to give higher raises. Also there is definitely favoritism because a lot of employees have been there 10 or more years and are friends outside of work.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to the employees. Act interested in what they do. Treat them like they are of value.

What I like about the company

The treat you like you're disposable. I have never felt less valued as an employee.

What I dislike about the company

Management does not listen to the employees. They do not handle feedback well. Employees are afraid to voice their opinion.
