What I like about the company

The mission is the most important thing and needs to stay first.

What I dislike about the company

There isn't one person of color on the board of directors or on the executive/Vice President leadership level. Decisions to make cuts are made without fully examining the negative impact it will have on warriors using programs and services. Mass layoffs may have damaged significant relationships in local and state communities. There is not concern for staff morale after mass layoffs. It feels as if the mission is taking a backseat to the need to make sure numbers are right, and yet the mission is supposed to be the driving force behind all staff and personnel.

Company Culture

Trust in leadership is diminishing quickly due to lack of communication, transparency and support.

Support from management

Leadership preaches they want feedback and desire 'healthy conflict' but teammates are ultimately punished in some way for disagreeing with leadership.

Teamwork

Depends on the teammate and why they work there. There is an increasing trend of teammates being employed there as a 'job' rather than supporting veterans. Sad.

Freedom to work independently

At WWP you'd better be ready to work on your own. They take work from others and give it to higher performing teammates with no raises or plans to redistribute the work at a later date.

Internal Communication

There are regularly scheduled team calls and 'huddles' but they rarely hold value.

Gender Equality

Men are paid more than women for the same position.

Career Development

WWP offers professional development courses, but they don't get you anywhere in this organization regardless of how stellar of a job you're doing.

Overall compensation for your work

Initially fair compensation, until the extra work piles on. Really competitive benefits.

Environmental Friendliness

Over time, the organization has seemed to take a turn to being a business in ALL aspects rather than serving veterans as it was intended. There's more focus on 'numbers' than what is best for long term success for veterans.

Work-Life Balance

Taking vacation puts you further behind. Also, since you're likely taking on more work than you were hired for, that is made even worse.

Job Security

Programs change and they will 'usually' offer you a new position, but it may not benefit you. If you're not in a hub office, your options are strictly limited. The hub model has not been recieved positively by existing teammates in any respect.

Challenging Work

Not challenging in a good way. Compassion fatigue is a major concern and those in leadership positions are ignoring the issues.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Those in leadership positions need to reevaluate their perspective on ego and get back to basics.

What I like about the company

The mission of this organization is the best out there. Having the ability to assist wounded service members is the most gratifying feeling one can have. As a program staff teammate you were able to see the ground level effect your work produced.

What I dislike about the company

The leadership from the director level all the way to the chief level is as corrupt as an organization can be. Very bad ethics and if you are not willing to drink the proverbial 'kool-aid' you will be made to feel incompetent, not matter the level of your expertise or experience, and the chances of you lasting long are not good. They make it very clear you're a disposable piece in their organization once you've cleared the new hire phase.
