Flexible working hours, getting every other Friday off it's great. Most of the employees are fun to work with.
You don't get an opportunity to think for yourself. Most "engineering" is copying an old design and making a few changes that the engineering manager tells you to make.
The job market is tight in Grand Forks. I've been looking for a different job for over a year but would like to stay in the area so I'm staying put for now. There is no semblance of teamwork. Instead there is a lot of finger-pointing.
Advice to Management
Upper management seems very disconnected from the average employee. Morale has been on a steady decline since the layoffs a few years ago. The 401k match didn't cost the company as much money as removing it as a benefit cost in lowered morale. Improvements have been made, but it seems like it's a case of "too little, too late." The CEO seems to have a genuine desire to turn the company around and make it profitable. He seems to knows that his vice presidents don't always tell him what he needs to hear so he's made an effort to talk with groups with no management in attendance. The caused a period of hope but when no changed seemed imminent, we realized that things will not change. There is talent in the company but no opportunity for employees to use that talent to improve processes.
