    Great work environment

    Document Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Exton, PA

    ProsTop notch electrical and mechanical engineers, team-centered work environment.

    ConsSome of the deadlines were often truncated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI don't have any advice other than sometimes the middle managers and non-managerial staff had better insight at times than some that were relied on for decision-making input.

    Bad Company with Good Intentions - Foreign Owned by Iraq and Bad Senior Management Drains Company Developement

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Exton, PA

    Pros-Good infrastructure to manage company projects and day to day tasks.
    -Good place to get basic experience.
    -Good exposure to various industries.

    Cons-Very strong feeling of nepotism there with obvious lack of upward mobility. If your not in good with the President - forget about it.
    -Terrible managerial feedback and training.
    -Archaic financial software and terrible staff management techniques.
    -Penny wise and dollar foolish.
    -Iraqi owned and they have their hand in the company's pocket which sucks them dry - company suffering.
    -Forced to use Iraqi services to complete technical work.
    -Amazing amount of time out on the road required by this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your people and promote a team atmosphere as opposed to making people feel like they have to fight among themselves to get their job done in a timely manner. You're stretched too thin and therefore your people feel the same pinch. This reflects in how your customer is treated by your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
