Attitude towards older colleagues

A lot of small layoffs of older workers.

Career Development

Non-resistant unless you are hand picked. You don't need to have the experience just be a favored child.

Job Security

Lots of layoffs. Looks like they will cut as many as needed to make numbers.

Challenging Work

Do more with less attitude. Lots of overtime if you want it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More seasoned CEO. It cannot be a one woman show. A few vps remain that should have been cut. Less micromanaging. More vision, strategy, and true leadership.

What I like about the company

Most of the people are great to work with.

What I dislike about the company

Management. Not enough leadership skills. Do not understand the people part of the equation.

Company Culture

Lack of trust. Limited real information provided. No direction provided by upper management.

Support from management

Some bad decisions being made by upper management that can’t help the company. Going from bad to worse.

Teamwork

What teamwork?

Freedom to work independently

Lack of trust.

Internal Communication

Lack of cooperation. No real story provided. “Tell them what they want to hear’ motto.

Gender Equality

I think men are still paid more than female counterparts.

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you’re over 40 you aren’t worth anything. Many have been fired.

Career Development

With limited budgets there’s no money.

Office / Work Environment

Small spaces.

Environmental Friendliness

Just do your job and keep your head down. Exist.

Work-Life Balance

OK on recognizing that there is life outside of work.

Job Security

OMG. “Get hired get fired” should be the tag line.

Challenging Work

For the work that’s being done. Barriers abound for the company’s to go forward.

Inclusive / Diverse

They want only “yes” people. OK on race, religious and sexual preference.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Sell the company (if someone will buy it), fire the top leader and her “yes people/friends”, reorganize, develop a strategic mission and start over. Good luck with that.

What I like about the company

Creative ideas.

What I dislike about the company

Toxic environment. Only hiring friends and not people who are qualified for most positions.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Wilton could benefit from additional software to help improve the workflow.

What I like about the company

Wilton is a company that hires very good management talent. The managers at each level work well with their employees and maintain a good relationship with those that report to them.

What I dislike about the company

Project management at Wilton could be better, including using a project management software program to track tasks.
