Freedom to work independently
Global company so lots of policies and procedures and red tape, usually.
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.
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.
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.
Have gotten a lot more active within the community the last few years.
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.
Security on site 24 hours, all doors are always locked and all staff trained on how to react if someone wanders in.
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.
