    Pros

    Intelligent Co-workers Advanced Technology Flexible Work Schedule New Facilities Publicly Traded Company (Financial Incentives)

    Cons

    Old, Dull Office Spaces (Interior Renovations Pending) Lacking Name / Brand Recognition Many Older (50+) Employees High Cost of Living in Southwest CT

    Advice to Management

    We need to hold higher quality standards (particularly in regards to software development). In addition, research and development concepts / new idea should be welcomed and integrated into designs more frequently / pro-actively. We should be more open to innovation, rather than (seemingly) fearing substantial change.

    Pros

    Trainings, Profit sharing and that's it.

    Cons

    New managers in Mechanical Engineering are useless. Anyone who are in buddy systems are promoted quickly with zero abilities. No promotions, no sense of team work, bunch of Idiots (new managers) screwing up entire work culture and spirit of good engineers. Lot of them leaving due to bad management.

    Advice to Management

    Kick new managers out of their current jobs.

    Pros

    The pay (salary + profit sharing) is good

    Cons

    No layoff, but lot lot of job termination, If they couldn't find a story to get rid of you, they make up a one. Making up stories against others for personal interests is a common practices for some people, a culture from Netherlands?


  10. Layoff of permanent employees, then rehiring as temp contractors is a cheap shot.

    Pros

    Good team leaders, engineers, and fellow workers.

    Cons

    8S system is inefficient, hindering technicians' ability to streamline work flow. Most contractors, through most agencies = zero benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate 8S better to allow flexibility, balancing what helps and what hinders.
