Politics and Nervousness abound

Manager (Current Employee)

ProsIf you are hands-on with your tools then this atmosphere is great to be a part of, as there is a lot of collective brain power within the engineering team. The team is always looking for smarter ways to whip up something. The busy bees are nice and easy to get along with.

ConsOutside of the engineering team, there has been a lot of turnover within management and favoritism at every vertical. This causes the overall decision making to slow down. Folks that are promoted are generally based on "who knows who". Feedback comes in the form of silence or "sent home packing without any answers". Its a contentious culture and probably why competition is always a step ahead and generally running faster.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop making rash decisions and put a thought behind every action. Respect your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
