    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Fortna full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    During my tenure, the company grew substantially both domestically and internationally. Salaries and benefits are good. HR works hard to keep packages competitive. Good IT group - the friendliest I've dealt with in my career and they quickly resolve issues. Company recruits experts in the field of warehouse management. Growth opportunities abound (as long as you're not an engineer).

    Cons

    Company has become an alpha-dog boys club. If you enjoy swimming with sharks you may well excel at Fortna. If you have a family or a hobby that matters to you, the clock is ticking on your career. Extraordinarily top-heavy structure. Directors to directors to directors to VPs to Executive VPs. It's nearly impossible to figure out who is in charge of anything. Accountability suffers and problems are largely blamed on engineering staff. Engineers are shut out of growth opportunities. Engineers are required to provide 24/7 support of client sites throughout the world, leading to a situation where you are essentially always at work...weekends, holidays, even your vacations. Staff are perpetually on the verge of burn-out.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce management. 1/3 of the company is a director or vice president. These positions come with hefty salaries, leaving those who actually do the work fighting for scraps. Understand that staff are afraid to point out problems for fear of retribution. All is not well, but the multiple layers of self-serving directors are squelching reality. The nebulous layers of management make accountability a severe challenge. This has given rise to finger-pointing and many staff level people being "thrown under the bus."
