I have been working at Composite Engineering Inc full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
They make interesting niche products. They know how to manufacture with composites. Manufacturing is their strength.
Being such a small company allows one to see many areas and move around to different fields. Every part of the company is close together.Cons
This small company is trying to play in a big company arena as a DOD contractor but is failing in many regards. Much of this can be traced back to its top-down dictatorial management style. Employees and employee input are not valued. They are willing to throw one of their own under the bus to get out of a tight spot. This leads to very low moral and high turn-over. I have watched some of the finest engineering talent walk out the door.
Partial successes are over-sold. This comes back to bite the company over and over when it is time to perform. Very telling is the internal motto amongst employees: "Over-commit and Under-perform". The company has not learned how to apply sound engineering principles and to plan programs realistically.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Upper management needs to stop micro-managing everything. Let the experts in their respective areas do their jobs. They need to foster an environment of respect and team work and stop the internal back-stabbing and bullying. Middle management must be given the authority to execute industry proven engineering and management philosophies. They should not be used solely as a pass-through conduit for directives from above. The company needs a shake up at the highest level to establish a healthy and productive work environment.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
