Not bad, if you don't plan on staying

Engineer (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsThe people working there are very friendly, and willing help most times - if mgt does not prohibit it. I really liked the people I worked with, and made friends with many of them. The work can be challenging at times.

ConsPay increases are slow to come, typically, after working there a couple years, people new to the company will make more for the same job. Additionally, while there are promotions within the company, they make it difficult at best. Any upper mgt can stop a promotion that mangers on both sides agreed too, even if delayed a few months (someone I worked with). OR, you can promote into a higher position, but be paid less than if the company hired a new person into the company. Managers even complained about this one.

Advice to Senior ManagementFair compensation, and actively promote from within. i.e. readjust salary when a change in job occurs, and take qualified internal employees over outside people. The technology is advanced, and current employees have skills that take time to train for.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
