    I have been working at City Wonders full-time

    Pros

    Great product, ability to travel and work on a large audience base, online focus, data analytics driven. Product also lets you learn and focus on interesting historical and cultural museums and places. You are always discovering something.

    Cons

    The place is fast so you would have to prefer this type of work environment.

    I worked at City Wonders full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, good social atmosphere, good city center location and good learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Not much chance to grow in company to higher position unless in company for years and someone leaves. Salary not great compared to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Raise salary, value people who are working in the company a long time and look at other companies for salary expectations. Jobs such as IT, SCC and OPS are very underpaid compared to competitors.

    I have been working at City Wonders full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Interesting topic to work on Great team mates Benefits

    Cons

    The technical leadership, specifically the CTO, leave a lot to be desired. He is incompetent, lacks understanding of fundamental technical principles and clearly demonstrates that favouritism is a privilege earned by those who don’t question him.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO knows he has a problem. Just hasn’t done anything about it.
