Pros

As an intern they provided great opportunities to try different projects and even meet with different departments and positions. Given a good amount of ownership and had great management and career leadership.

Cons

When starting as a new employee I was surprised by the lack of on-boarding effort and introductions, but that may differ depending on the department and timing. You just have to ask a lot of questions and put yourself out there.

    Pros

    Great training, latest equipment, good start out pay, great people to work with

    Cons

    Family referrals for employment( husband manager, wife in a different management position as well). Managers and.leads are not coordinated, no chance of advancement Empty promises, customer obsession should be declared as psychological analysis of frustrated individuals. Metric system is totally inaccurate . Long working hours, enforced shift bids, hardly any vacation time can be taken....

    Advice to Management

    Keep on outsourcing and see the results in a few years.Cant have people in India, South Africa and the Philippines taking care of re occurring problems just because you want to go cheap


  2. I like my job for the time being.
