    I have been working at CDI Engineering Solutions part-time (less than an year)

    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.

    Pros

    There are no pros do not work here

    Cons

    The worst company I have ever worked for. The environment is terrible the managers do not know what they are doing. All they want you to do is produce numbers they do not treat you like humans.

    Pros

    I have found that all levels of management, especially upper level, are very intelligent and engaged in the dynamics of the company.

    Cons

    My sector is being affected by the sequestration, however, they are finding relevent things for me and other valuable employees to do that benefit other parts of the company to keep us gainfully employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Stay engaged, professional, and humanistic!

    Pros

    Family oriented, office finally relocating soon!

    Cons

    After the company restructured, there were too many changes happening at the same time for anyone person to know the full impact to daily productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some major long term project work in the energy capital of the world.

    I worked at CDI Engineering Solutions

    Pros

    CDI is very flexible with taking time off work. The environment is also very relaxed and most people are very friendly. It is a good way to get experience with a variety of projects.

    Cons

    You'll have to move your desk several times becaue they can't keep anyone in the same spot. It is also nearly impossible to be promoted to a better position since there is nowhere to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide training sessions with pay. Setup mentor relationships.

    You are cheap labor for a global multi-billion dollar corporation which has little regard for you.

    I have been working at CDI Engineering Solutions

    Pros

    Flex time is the only thing worhwhile here. There is also the possibility of being discovered as a potential employee for the feeder company.

    Cons

    Management made employees take 2 pay cuts in 2 years. Medical insurance is bad also. They send you home if theres no work w/o pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get better insurance for your employees. It is unethical and immoral to force employees to take pay cut when the feeder company (GE) still get paid by the US gov't the same.
