Prime example of "The Good Old Boy Club"

Customer Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsMoney was good for the educational level if you're in the right position. Progressive industry that has a bright future if it doesn't ALL go overseas.

ConsDoesn't really matter how hard you work or what your contributions are, you're either 'One Of The Boys' or you're not. Lower level managers are TERRIBLE about taking care of their buddies while disregarding the real performers. Upper management either doesn't know about this or more likely they don't care. Very little work / life balance. They basically feel like they own you. Benefits get whittled away little by little over time.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou constantly talk about rewarding the doers but there is no fairness in the performance reviews. Applied review system has been broken for many many years and you can't just disguise this with with catchy new words. The doers are not being rewarded, the managers buddies are first.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
