Proud company with amazing employees held back by management infighting & lack of investment in operational excellence.

Pros

Rich heritage. Employees are greatest asset who go to incredible lengths, working countless hours with very little reward or recognition. Engineering talent is outstanding and folks in trenches are highly creative.

Cons

Need to focus on the customer with greater intensity, Circular door of management with the same leaders simply changing seats which causes repeat mistakes and entrenched beliefs. IT investment is constrained for internal operations.

Advice to Management

Take more risk and act with company values instead of pretending to. Need to take more leaps and make greater investments in Marketing setting achievable goals and tolerating less in-fighting and management of personalities.

    Pros

    Extremely flexible schedule, as I could shift my hours to whatever worked best for me.
    Wonderful people, most of which have lots to offer in terms of learning.
    Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    The pay is slightly lower than desired, and the health benefits were only "okay".
    No paid sick leave as an intern, but that is pretty standard.
