I worked at Butler America full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The company offers a very flexible schedule to both full time employees and interns. Office environment is fun and friendly.

Cons

Being a smaller company and a contractor, the benefits and pay are not the best. Being located in West Lafayette, you get the excuse "low cost of living" which translates to a smaller paycheck than you otherwise deserve. Experienced engineers do not feel valued and feel like they are replaceable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With a large number of employees <2 years experience, some people treat work like a classroom and talk/watch videos on their phone/games on their phones. Need to hire people who will focus and stay on task. Also need to make employees feel valuable and needed or else they will find better opportunities.

    I have been working at Butler America as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a pretty simple job to get started while completing school, there is very little formal training. Butler offers flexible hours to their interns and almost always makes an offer upon graduation.

    Cons

    There isn't much opportunity to "advance" at this company. The pay and benefits are fair but not very competitive.

    I worked at Butler America

    Pros

    Good and friendly. Small company. You will get your recognition soon when you do a good job. My manager was good and used to recognize my hard work.

    Cons

    Higher management was not really good. They could not hold on to customers nor used to get new customers. Not a good company for long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Has to develop customers. Recruit good staff. But I enjoyed working with my team. I would have still with them if they would not bankrupt.
