Pros

They feed you very well when days are very busy, so you can work through your lunch. This company offers great benefits.

Cons

No room for growth with this company. Very high layoff rate. Very cutthroat. They expect you to work 14 hours days. Had to wait 6 months before receiving overtime pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too aggressive. No empathy for there employess. Very dishonest.

    Pros

    If you are willing to work 12 hour days every day and perform work volumes that are meant for 3 people it would be a great place for you.

    Cons

    There is no work-life balance unless you are an engineer. Perks for engineers only. If you are not an engineer you are made to feel unimportant and if you question anything you are told you have an attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees and don't treat them like you would be willing to replace them rather than fix what needs fixed. The company announce a core value refresh and the Senior Executives have stated they will walk the talk and expect all managers to do the same but there are managers in a couple departments that have not attempted to make the change.
