Current Employee - Senior Engineer in West Greenwich, RI

Pros

Benefits and pay are in the top of our industry.
401k match is amazing and a lot of paid leave.
Atmosphere used to be better, although is still great. Attitudes are generally positive in the work place and open communication is generally accepted.

Cons

Benefits have slowly reduced (although still great)
Atmosphere is much more competitive due to less positions available in the last few years.
Workload has increased significantly as hiring of new staff is slow to respond to demand for work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better analysis of hiring needs. Work slack from lack of hiring for positions is being taken in by compromising work/life balance with existing staff.

    The acquisition was painful and they missed out on some good opportunities to make it better. I was utterly unimpressed with their HR team.

    Pros

    Benefits are good; very good 401k matching; relatively smart people to work with; variety of possible career paths

    Cons

    This place is a bit dysfunctional at the moment following recent re-org; Fairly noticeable shift in culture as old Sr. Mgmt flushed out and replaced with new ones. They struggle to make any decision...lots of swirl before a strategy is finally selected.
