    Pros

    Good pay, hands off approach for contractors

    Terrible healthcare/price for healthcare, unaware of on-going projects

    Renegotiate your healthcare contracts, 80% of employees purchase healthcare outside of your company.

    Pros

    Great people to work with (for those who will still be there, extremely high employee turn around), will learn a lot about drafting and GD&T

    Care more about your employees and your employees will, in turn, learn to care for the company

    Pros

    CDI matched my previous pay an even improved upon it slightly in order to hire me. My supervisor was very helpful even though a little hard to get a hold of sometimes since I was at a remote site as a resident contractor.

    Cons

    Working at a remote location it can be a little challenging to contact your supervisor but eventually the supervisor will get back to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more accessible as a supervisor, however overall CDI has been a pleasant experience as an employee.

    Pros

    Allowed great flexiblity to accomplish my engineering tasks. I enjoyed being able to have personal freedom to do design work.

    Cons

    Individual goal assignment was too vague and not well targeted. At least there was an effort to encourage employees to pick career goals and some guidance to achieve them. This could be expanded and made more specific to individual strenghts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on your path to engage employees and to improve communication.
