    Pros

    Great co-workers, knowledge is shared and opportunity to work up or across different teams. Flexible time off and management is friendly towards a work life balance.

    Cons

    Low wages when compared to the other companies in the Denver metro area. It takes a lot of effort to get promoted even when your doing the needed work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the fat by firing non-performing engineers and instead focus on the young engineers who are performing beyond the call of duty and compensate them accordingly.

    2 weeks vacation and profit sharing

    Cons

    Many dislike benefits plans

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with more respect. Show the employees through word and deed that you expect them to excel because they are capable of excelling, rather than simply because you want them to.
