    I worked at WorkWave full-time

    Pros

    WorkWave is a good place to be for a little while, but not to stay. It is a comfortable place to be, but if you are looking to grow… go elsewhere. There are no clear career growth plans, or proper training for the engineers. - Free (Cheap) Lunches 4 days a week to keep you in the office - Flexible Working Hours, with work from home option. (Just make sure you look like your working really hard when you're there and...

    Cons

    There are hardworking people at WorkWave. Unfortunately, management is very poor. Management does not take the advice of employees seriously, pushes for quick features, and wants to micromanage. WorkWave was acquired by a global company and is pushing for aggressive road maps with short deadlines. This is a tech company, but it is not run as a tech company. It is run by business and sales/marketing people that do...

    Advice to Management

    Make it so engineers want to stay. They are the ones building and creating your product after all. You need good engineers and a clean development process for a good software product. - Provide training for engineers - Provide better educational incentives to keep engineers up to date (Certificates, etc.) - Create clear career growth tracks for engineers - Promote personable managers... - Stop pushing the perception...

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at WorkWave

    Pros

    -Free Lunch (4 out of the 5 days) -Most lower-level coworkers are willing to help you out -Some of the events that the company hosts are fun to participate in

    Cons

    -The onboarding process is ROUGH to say the least. You get a good start, but it reverts to startup-quality onboarding where you're almost on your own in some departments. -Benefits could be better (insurance-wise) -There is NO true internal movement unless it's out of necessity here. Job requirements are so high that internal applicants DON'T apply as they're told they don't meet the minimum. -There are no resources for...

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE bring back the Employee-first mentality. There's a lot of politics and miscommunication at play in the Upper Management level (especially on the Support and Engineering levels) and it's driving your employees out in droves. This would be a really great company to work for if you can fix this issue and work on the other cons...

    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

    Be as transparent as possible, and encourage more cross-team collaboration and support
