    I have been working at WorkWave full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -positive atmosphere -talented and collaborative teams -competitive benefits -plenty of room for advancement

    Cons

    -newer teams and leadership mean fledgling or developing structures/processes

    Advice to Management

    New and developing structures are always a part of a growing team and show promise, but these new processes can lead to a miscommunication of priorities at times. Clearly outline goals and what these priorities are, so when "fire drill" tasks come along the team is better able to identify what projects need to commence and what tasks can be temporarily benched to make room for the new assignment.

      I have been working at WorkWave full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I've been working at WorkWave for almost a year, and I have learned so much within that year. It is rare that you find a company that really empowers you to learn and grow, and actually be able to bring your ideas to life, and WorkWave lets you do just that. The company is filled with so many hard working people and smart minds, and with the hard work and challenges that come your way, there is also a great culture and...

      Cons

      The company is growing and changing at a rapid pace, and it can be challenging to align your goals and keep up with a constantly moving company, but I know it is all part of growing pains that most companies face - the plus side is that it keeps you on your toes!

      Advice to Management

      I worked at WorkWave full-time

      Pros

      Former CEO placed strong focus on employee culture; Decent quarterly updates on mission, strategy and goals.
