    Pros

    A great place to work if you are interested in a challenging and fast paced work environment. CWD is a growth based comapny so you are always learning new things and they are open to new ways of achieving their goals. Pay, focus on goals and cool people to work with.

    Cons

    It’s hard for the company to find solid people, as Niagara Falls doesn’t have the workforce we need.

    Pros

    - Fast paced never boring - great atmosphere with great employees - Genuinely love what I get to do everyday - Benefits - great company events, rewards, department lunches, contests, draws, parties, monthly lunches on the company etc. - Paid training - whether it be finishing a degree, diploma, or professional development the company will support you - discount on products - everyone has a part in creating great consumer electronics - company is constantly growing and there are many opportunities to advance - BOD has recently really begun to put forth an extra effort to make the company a better place by having an open forum where everyone in the company has an opportunity to address any ideas or concerns to help improve the company Things to consider: - to really be successful at this company you need to prove you are a valuable asset. - being negative is not the way to get through in this company. It is definitely picked up on and can hinder your experience and and ability to progress in the company.

    Cons

    - Company is lead by 2 managing directors who may not always be on the same page all the time. This can cause some bottlenecks in projects. Adapting to both different managing styles can also be a challenge, as their pace and processes are very different. - management needs to have a bit more authority to make decisions

    Pros

    Great overall environment. Everyone genuinely tries to work together to "make it happen". Company provided training. Good benefits - department lunches, contests, and employee recognition. Owners have strong sense of business longevity and work to ensure success as they take the responsibility of ensuring jobs and growth for their workforce seriously. Lots of room for growth - promote from within. Company working hard to reduce employee turnover rate. Great on-boarding process.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment with lots of running projects that can sometimes lead to blips in project management.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to gain experience. Fast paced, rarely do you ever have a chance to be bored. Suggestions for improvement are taken seriously and implemented to better the company when it makes sense and meets business needs. Encouragement to move up in the company and seek out what part of the business suits your skills. It is a very positive environment.

    Cons

    Things can be delayed, yearly reviews being one.

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth, fantastic culture, company events, luncheons, give-aways etc.

    Cons

    Growing pains: Company is running on very lean staffing. Stress can often be high in the wake of a fast paced and ever-growing/ever changing environment. Days can be long, and pressure can be high at times.

    Pros

    Competitive wages with a growing company. Upper management and CEO's know your name and you are treated as a person and not as a number. They often take time to speak to you and value your honest opinion. From day one I was welcomed by other team members and management with open arms and have never felt more comfortable in a career. It is a very fast paced environment, which may not be for everyone but it is that challenge, I crave. Job satisfaction and seeing the recognition for a job well done helps with self worth and who doesn't enjoy being praised or receiving koodos for a job well done? From entry level to mid and upper management there is room to grow within the company and they look to promote from within. With everything I have learned in my time here, I can honestly say this is the best job I have ever had and I am looking for a long term career here.

    Cons

    As with any small growing company, there is bound to be growing pangs, but if you take these lessons and learn you are better off and will get farther in life and in your career.

    Pros

    There are many different positions so there is the ability to start in an entry level and work up. The company believes in internal promotion and allows applicants to come from different departments. As the company is rapidly growing there is room for employees to grow with it. Staff are very friendly and helpful for the most part which makes for a comfortable working situation. Since the company is growing rapidly, there is a lot of learning opportunities for all team members of the company which makes coming into work each day interesting. The company is also always trying to improve operations to make everyone's job more efficient which allows team members to focus their efforts on more meaningful/interesting tasks.

    Cons

    Fast paced atmosphere may not be desirable by some people. It is a family owned company so sometimes you need to deal with conflicting requests by management. The rapid growth sometimes means people need to think on their feet as there may not be procedures in place for everything that comes up. This can be a positive for some as it keeps things interesting but can also frustrate others.

    Pros

    I've been working here for a little over a year now. It's been a great experience so far. The people are great, company is fun, pay is good, and the job is unique (never boring). -Training is excellent. They walk you through everything to ensure you're ready for the job. - Work/life balance is highly encouraged. - Fun department and company events almost monthly. - Good benefits. - Pay starts off at low-medium, but increases significantly after a year. - Management is good; patient, willing to listen, encourages you to express your opinions and ask questions. - The company is always looking at ways to keep their employees happy. I.e. product giveaways, recognition board, discounts, CWD "bucks". - Smaller company means we all know each other fairly well and enjoy working together. - Fast-paced environment means you can learn a lot very quickly and gain more experience in less time.

    Cons

    - Turnover rate is fairly high, although I'm not really sure why. - Environment is fast paced. Don't think you can lazily sneak your way up the ladder here. Organization and self-discipline are important traits you'll need to be successful. - Some silly little rules like no coffee breaks before 10 am. - Too many SOPs to follow. - Everything you do needs to be approved by management, which can really slow things down.

    Pros

    CWD is a dynamic and fast-paced business. The environment is professional without feeling too stuffy or stuck up. Since it's a relatively young company, there really aren't any "lifers" or know-it-all types around. New hires are welcomed by the team and usually integrate quickly. Management has made a good effort to encourage a team environment, and holds regular company and department events. For almost all employees, the hours are 8:00-5:00, Monday-Friday with no overtime expected. The work/life balance is good and nobody is expected to answer cell phones after 5:00 etc. All full-time employees receive benefits and management is flexible when time-off is needed for appointments and family matters. Tuition reimbursement is available for qualifying courses. There are opportunities to move up in the company, and most current managers have been promoted from within. It's a great place to gain experience and take on new challenges to grow your skill set.

    Cons

    -Being a fast-paced environment, change comes quickly and relatively often. -Management has high expectations and holds employees accountable (not a con but some people have a hard time with this)
