Glass Half Full

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Wilton Brands

ProsSupportive management, increasing career opportunities for those who work hard, half-day Fridays during the summer, a growing understanding for the digital space.

ConsProjects are done on increasingly short deadlines, some of which suffer as a result. Can't help but wonder often how much better a product could have been if adequate time had been given to develop it, rather than fixing it in the aftermath.
