    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Grand Island, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Grand Island, NY

    I worked at CannonDesign full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Relatively stable firm with a good reputation to those that do not work in the industry. Those men that play the game can make a good living.

    Cons

    Women are treated as second class, particularly in the Finance area. Pay is lower and respect is non-existent. They promote and pay based on your gender and who likes you, not how well you do your job. Work is piled on with no help provided until the employee is on the verge of a break-down. Corporate culture is toxic. The "Elite Spirit" in your Vision seems to translate to "Elitist"; if you're not an Arch or Engineer, you're nobody.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are more "exceptions" than rules; create written policies and adhere to them. Reward high performers, not just those who suck-up to the right people. Recognize and reward contributions to the organization.
    Start following all employment regulations before someone reports you on those you choose to ignore.
    Live the "Vision" - particularly the part about respect for co-workers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
