Pros

There is a lot of opportunity to take on projects that allow you to learn new things. Always something happening and changing. Company is in a state of evolution and very innovative with the roll out of the new brand. The company is growing very rapidly and has managed to come out on top in spite of challenging financial and economical climates.

Cons

Conservative company with conservative values around dress, and culture. If you want to grow in the company you have to pursue it and get it, it won't be handed to you. Along with the growth come the challenges of adapting to new ways of having to do business both internally and externally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appreciate employees, feeling values is priceless. No matter how busy things are, every manager should take the time to let their employees know they care and appreciate their efforts.

    Pros

    Steady work with little down time
    Direct managers were fantastic concentrating on our productivity just as much as our satisfaction with our career.
    Development was strong as long as you took charge of it. They will not lead you on a leash. If you wanted a promotion, 6 months of self driven education would get you there.

    Cons

    Little down time on a 100% travel position left no time for family balance and being called out of town last minute often. Expense process was obtuse causing way to much overhead for what could be simple.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long hard look at what Inscope was. I know you have, and tried to keep it that way. But, somewhere along the way everyone forgot that Inscope had it right. As each perk for being part of that company fell, so did your engineers.
