Management is running DH into the ground

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Longmont, CO

ProsThey pay isn't bad, although don't count on raises once you get in and they had a 5% salary cut in the summer of 2010. They also don't push the engineering teams as much as other departments - or to be more accurate, they don't get flogged as much when they cannot deliver 125% year after year.

ConsBeing an engineering driven company (Dana's words) can be acceptable as long as they understand they have to deliver, every other function is a support group. DH's problem is when engineering slips schedules, fails to meet cost targets, and doesn't deliver acceptable reliability and function the rest of the teams take the blame. The engineering team is good, but the expectations across the board are unrealistic. However, to state this (and worse yet, demonstrate it before mgmt accepts the slip) is paycheck suicide.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor those 2 at the top, leave. For those one level down, stop staying silent to keep the paycheck coming and start pushing back for realistic schedules and to deliver the right products.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
