Management is the problem from the CEO down!

Controls Engineer (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsPROs- Large company that is extremely profitable. 6% bonus at end of year. Ability to negotiate on payscale and number of vacation days. Flex hours available and a nice basketball hoop for playing hoops during lunch breaks.

ConsCons- The CEO is aware of the problems and has been incompetent in taking corrective action to fix a major problem. Your suggestions are ignored. The last meeting to correct the problems promoted the two individuals who have created the problems. Management has sat back for a decade and allowed two people to become unexpendable (and gave them raises throughtout!) by allowing them to draw the path for this company by being the only people who know how the systems operate and successfully convinced upper management that the problem has been in all of the 20+ engineers that have left and not them. Management is blind to see that the reason why they don’t train others is to secure their jobs!! If one of them were to leave, their controls dept would be devastated so the CEO has taken the path of fear and refuses to address the problem. The latest corrective action by the CEO is to put a quality control person in charge of engineering. Yes, this is true. A non engineer dictating the job responsibilites of engineers.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring young guys out of college who have no reference on how a real company operates. Young people are nieve and don’t realize how pathetic this company is ran since they have nothing to compare it too. This seems the only path available as after interviewing engineers and having a non stop recruitment of enginners and not being able to find one, the only answer is to keep hiring young guys. I would also keep promoting from within and never hire an outside person who has engineered at another company to bring in fresh ideas

UPDATE: 4-30-12. hired new controls engineer on Monday- never showed up and quit on Wednesday of the same week!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It seems that our ex-employee was highly frustrated at the company choosing to keep some of our most valuable and highly experienced employees. Sadly he felt that these were cause of his frustration ... More
