    I worked at The CWD Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Phenomenal company, unconditional support from upper management, great work environment, outstanding customer service from all employees, benefits (especially pto)ideal for those with kids/families, flexibility, employee recognition and activities validates company owner appreciation, fun and wonderful diverse group of co-workers.

    Cons

    Location is not ideal for some employees, on-call (changes are being made to improve).

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have is to consider an office on the Eastside (Bellevue/ Kirkland) and to relieve manager's from on-call.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and other benefits! Co-workers are always ready to lend a hand.

    Cons

    --Training is a little lacking. Its a bit of a sink or swim moment.It doesn't really come together until 6 months in. Then you have an epiphany moment.
    --It is located in Magnolia. Which is just horrible for commuting. I live in the city and it still takes me an hour to get to work. Free parking though.

    Pros

    This is without a doubt the best management company at least in Washington, I'm sure beyond.
    People that left to work at other management companies come back to work here. (others secretly want to return)
    Management is on the same team with you.
    Management is reasonable and supportive.
    Work environment is laid back.
    You do work on your own to a degree.
    Time off can be accrued quickly and will spoil you.
    Obviously, great work/life balance.
    Owner takes employees out on his antique boat on Fridays in the summer.

    Cons

    This industry can be stressful.
    Sometimes the freedom people have can cause a newer employee to have some misinformed opinions.
    There really aren't many Cons.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new website. Otherwise, you guys try your best to be like a family. I really appreciate the opportunites for professional and personal growth. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Management is motivating and helpful
    In large part, work on your own (you are your own boss)
    Medical is pretty good
    Paid time off is great

    Cons

    The compensation does not increase with the increase in work load.
    Interesting people...
    The office is in a weird location
    Lacks community company culture

    Advice to Management

    accounting department (or should I say data entry department) needs more training or CWD neds to hire more experienced accountants.
