Pros

I've worked at CALIBRE for several years. The people are exceptional, and opportunities are available if you want them. If you're the kind of person who wants to get things accomplished and learn all aspects of the business, it's a great place to work. Ethical focus is not just lip service. The leave is generous, benefits are good, and the employee stock options are great. Internal training is widely available and frequently conducted by executive management. External training and most benefits are at least on par with the market. It is a steadily growing company; management at the executive level is careful, accessible, and thoroughly involved. It's a place where, despite 750 employees, you will likely be known to the C-level team.

Cons

This is not the best place if you want a predictable, 9-5 type job, and the culture is heavily driven by the fact that the majority of people are former military (can be a pro and a con). The pay is not the top of the market. You have to have an entrepreneurial mindset and reach for opportunities, and even with that attitude, advancing can be difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication effectively through all levels of the organization has improved, but is still a challenge. Effectively integrating those employees who are at offsite locations is another continual challenge. Finally, recommend developing/standardizing metrics for advancement.

    Pros

    Company kept up with current technologies.

    Cons

    It reminds me of high school, complete with co-workers talking about other co-workers and conspiring to get people fired for things that other people did. Upper level management does not listen to people under them. Compensate everybody on their worth, not just people that are your friends.
