    A once great company has lost it's way (it's called ERDMAN)...

    Corporate Support Role (Former Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsThe history is cool, average workers are great, work-life balance is decent, and has a really nice home office.

    ConsSenior management is among the most clueless I've seen. They treat employees like idiots, first letting people go 2-3 per week due to "performance", and then had a mass layoff to "right-size" months later. It's lost hundreds of employees in a few years, the CEO (not Scott Ransom - that is the old CEO) leaves a lot of leadership to be desired, and it shows. They tell you they pay bonuses based on performance...but don't say they haven't paid a bonus in years. There is no employee development plan. Employees don't trust them anymore. Every single corporate support person left in 2013 due to culture (not kidding).

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo late.

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

    management has no loyalty to employees

    Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsSome really good people to work with, fellow employees treated you like family, but to upper management you are just a number

    ConsUpper management has no idea where it is headed, they are trying to "change the culture" as they say, they have laid off over 200 employees the last 5 years, most who where there when the company was making 150 million a year in profit, now it is at 30 million. They recently laid off another 30 people so they could give raises and bonus to those who are left.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's too late for advice.

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

    With better collaboration and mentorship would be a great place to work...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsCompetivie pay and benefits; Structured project process; Established standards; Excellent IT and technical support; Recognizes and promotes characteristics consistent is maintaining a positive company culture

    ConsLimited work schedule flexibility; Poor in-house collaboration due to consistent tight project schedules; Too much emphasis on individual vs. team accomplishments

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no established mentorship program. A mentorship program would promote a faster learning curve for new employees in terms of understanding and applying a project's process and established standards. Technical mentorship would also lead to better growth within the technical disciplines.
