    I worked at G & W Electric Company

    Pros

    Support from other engineers, when they find time (everyone is super busy)
    Database makes new designs a little simpler
    Reviews are done on every project to ensure nothing is missed
    drawing database organized and somewhat easy to access parts you need

    Cons

    Management is super cheap. They will paint rusty office furniture to keep from buying new stuff. They also took away award pizza lunches even though engineering staff gives dozens of free overtime every week. They also charge employees for coffee, which is unheard of from any company. Seriously, who doesn't supply that for their employees??
    your always behind on projects because engineer staff can't possibly keep up with workload
    Your expected to come in on saturdays at least once a month (no choice)
    Some of the senior staff on the shop floor know what they're doing, but there is a lot of unskilled labor that requires help from engineering staff on a regular basis when they should be spending time getting projects out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone needs to go into the bottom depths of day to day operations and realize the way they are going things doesn't work, and that most of the engineering staff is really unhappy (though it seems like everyone puts up with it rather than finding work elsewhere)

    I worked at G & W Electric Company

    Pros

    The company is growing by leaps and bounds and has since moved to a new location. There are many any opportunities to grow and develop.

    Cons

    I was a female working in a mainly male industry. Every time I entered the plant, I felt 500 pairs of eyes following my every move. Another employee verbally intimidated me in the parking lot at work while I was walking to my car. I felt very uncomfortable there and would mot choose to go back.
