Pay, Performance, and Promotion knows not gender and ethnicity

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsTruly great people with good values can be found in many parts of the world
Opportunity for more work is there
Opportunity to live abroad and experience new culture is there

ConsCompensation structure is laughable for engineers. The band structure and equity adjustments pretty much gaurantee that lifelong high performers dont make much more money than lifelong "2" performers
Diversity taken too far - preferential treatment to hiring, promotion, layoffs, and pay given to women first, minorities second, and everyone else third. The CEO said publicly, "we will have 50% women on the leadership team by xxx date" - how is he sure that a woman is qualified for 50% of the jobs? Answer: He isn't - but it will be forced.
People are "lifers" - and lifers can create complacency and be a blocker for promotion of good, young talent.
Locations suck. They really suck for young people.
More work/responsibilitiy not aligned to pay. You are paid for 2 roles in your rear-view mirror.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget the white male engineers - they are the lifeblood of the company.
Move the COB & COM to Indianapolis - instant access to better talent for admin skill families
Tear up "home to host" and start over.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
