Rush to failure

Quality Engineer (Former Employee)
Perry, FL

ProsVery challenging environment. Always something different and new to figure out.
Nice people.
Lots of freedom. no micromanagement if you stayed on top of your tasks.

ConsLittle direction from management on new products.
Work / Life balance almost nonexsistant. Easily put in 60 hrs. Once had to come in on a hoilday to get something to a customer and it easily could have waited until after the break. Had to cancel a vacation last minute.
Doesn't take any advice from the customer on how to improve the product.
In the middle of nowhere.
Doesn't replace people as they leave (promotions, quit, firings)
Too many reorgs/layoffs. This caused real low morale.
Production is rushed at the price of quality. Not enough time to properly test product to ensure it meets standards before going into final testing, which were often failed.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to input from the employees and use this input to make decisions. Slow down, think about it, and do it right the first time rather than failing seven times.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pay is good to recruit talent but you'll have a challenge fitting in unless… Advice to Senior Management: Stop smiling and being nice when you don't mean it.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
