Pros

During good industry times there are plenty of oppourtunities for overtime and experiance.

Cons

Little to no training for employees. If you are a hard worker and have some knowledge of the industry then you will be their workhorse picking up the slack of everyone else that is just billing time. Poor project managment and resource allocation. Some employees end up working 60+ hours a week on 5 to 6 projects while others are limited to no more than 40 hours. Once you get involved in a specific area of projects there is no way out, you end up getting stuck doing the same thing. The company advertises career growth and diversity but that is hardly ever the case.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on resource allocation to projects to improve morale and overall efficiency. Provide industry training for new employees and work with under performing employees to improve their skills.

    Pros

    Company management is fair and willing to give you a chance if you show that you understand what it takes to lead and appreciate that you need to know what you're doing before you try to lead. They appreciate your having a good knowledge base and will give you the chance to put it to use if you indicate an interest in doing so.

    Cons

    The company overall is pretty great but there are a few people here who think way too highly of themselves and their abilities. There are a couple more experienced engineers who expect respect no matter their capability or management style and a few younger ones that just seem like they should be given a free pass for showing up and knowing something. Not willing to earn their spot but rather demand it. Overall though the people are a big reason why this company is great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone is not really as good as they think they are tell them. It will do wonders for the individual and for the company.

    Pros

    Small Projects, No personal growth, No proper work distribution, Only two week of vacation even if you have 20 years experience. Stay away.

    Cons

    No grass root projects, All maintenance work type of projects, No technology and expertise in any field, Not a single in house programs or soft wares. Uses others programs. No training to young engineers, Just hires fresh foreign graduates who are not resident and uses them by paying very low salary with lie that we will apply for the resident card. No one should consider this company. Do not believe what they say in Interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of old racist and religious fanatics. Hire young energetic engineers with broad experience. Get better experienced people and get better projects. There are only few core people and rest are temporary. All the core people and supervisors treats others very bad. They consider them as a religious but they are ready to slash your throat.
