  7. "Great work environment. Solid Management and Colleagues."

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Worldwide Business Research full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    WBR is a well run company with a solid management in place. Middle and upper sales management have at least 10-15 years of experience each in this industry, and know how to properly run a sales team properly. Expectations are realistic, KPIs are not the main focus of your progress and success. While you need to preform, you're looked at from a growth perspective first and foremost - it's not an environment where you... either hit your KPIs or you're out. The work environment is friendly and helpful, with little to no stress. Colleagues and management are always open to feedback and questions. You're treated like an adult. Company is seeing significant growth, I believe we were around 26% YoY in 2019. It's always a good sign to see a company that's been around for 20 years still growing.

    Cons

    Tech and the office definitely need to be updated, but there have been small improvements which is a good sign (new desks, a few newer computers, etc).

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    You’re consistently learning and growing and someone is always there to offer a helping hand. Criticism is also always followed with what you’re doing well too, never all bad. Making mistakes is a part of the learning/growth process.

    Cons

    Hard at first to balance work/personal life because of how invested you become and how stressful it is, it is manageable though.
