Good place to work if you dont want to work

Engineer I (Current Employee)
Cheyenne, WY

ProsEasy, laid back. Good place to work if you just want to put in time and go home.

ConsLow pay
Bad benefits
untrained/ignorant management
no training
no room for advancement
expensive benefits

Advice to Senior ManagementStop penalizing the people who do all the work and who train and try to advance. Stop getting in the way with stupid ideas out of a magazine that you read on an airplane and basing everything off buzzwords. Stop promoting the slackers and incompetent people because this is where your problems start compounding. And pay better to attract talent and get off the 10 ten worst places to work list.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
