    Pros

    - Benefits
    - Pay was decent
    - Some of the co-workers

    Cons

    – Management of all levels:
     - They are clueless to what is going on
     - They don't know what each job entails therefore, there is a constant battle of who should be doing what
     - When they can't figure out an issue they fire individuals who took on the issue but weren't fully trained
     - Assign the work of 3-4 people and expect everything done timely even if that means working 80 hour a week
     - Micromanaging
     - Don't know how to talk to or treat employees
    No work life balance, you have to create your own if you want it
    Every business unit operates as a silos
    Lack of onboard training
    Monthly close process takes weeks to complete because there is not clear way of performing tasks
    No employee appreciation therefore, employee morale is horrible!
    Too many politics
    No room for growth because even if promoted you're still doing your previous duties
    Not enough employees for the work
    High turnover
    Not a good work environment, profanity is constantly used, talking down to employees is a constant as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up because when good employees understand their worth there will be an even higher turnover. Treat employees with respect because they are people too and not just a timecard to get you to your bottom line!

    Good engineers, poor leadership

    Pros

    Great engineers
    Opportunity to work on innovative designs that serve customers well

    Cons

    Toxic politics
    Good engineering is backseat to sales. Projects are promised with inadequate time, planning, and money in a desperate attempt to show bids.
    Nepotism Nepotism Nepotism. It exists everywhere but at CW it's a way of life
    Open degradation and belittling of employees across the board, top to bottom, performing and non-performing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The one piece of advice for management, namely fire all of the managers and revamp the culture, is the one thing least likely to happen. The place is poison.
