The atmosphere at ECI is top-notch; the employees are happy and we work to help the business grow. ECI has grown rapidly thanks to the entire team. I couldn't imagine working anywhere other than ECI. The CEO is brilliant and leads with passion for the organization. The COO is dedicated to process controls to ensure ECI runs in a healthy fashion. Overall, ECI ROCKS!!!!!! Join the team if you want to work for a growing organization dedicated to success!

    The worst company, by far, anywhere in the region. Stay away.

    Pros

    There are some really smart, really friendly, very professional people working here. Some of the project work is technically challenging and intellectually stimulating. If you were somehow able to remove the cancer that is destroying the company from the top and replaced it with normalcy, it might even be a decent place to work.

    Cons

    It is the most mismanaged, micro-managed environment I've ever been in. If it wasn't destroying the careers of some really great people, it'd be laughable. There is a culture of distrust and destruction that is driven by the senior management team. The physical environment is terrible. The office environment is dirty and staff are crammed into 4-foot wide workspaces. There are ~60 employees. Only one woman, who happens to be the co-owner. You are lied to.. from your very first interview. About the company. About the culture. About the work you will do. About everything.
    These lies continue while you work there. Eventually you will be pitted against your colleagues in a crazy he-said-he-said world in which nobody really said anything but the management team is out to get you, or them, and so makes a bunch of stuff up. After you work there awhile you kind of get used to it, in a sick Stockholm-syndrome kind of way. Its only when you get out and look back in that you realize how absolutely crazy it was to work there. There are questionable time and billing practices. There are unreasonable, unjustified, and frankly unbearable rules and regulations about how you must conduct yourself while on the job. There is no room for professional growth: You are either a developer, or a project manager/developer. Getting "promoted" to PM gets you more responsibility and eventually leads to your systematic destruction, not more compensation. It is an unquestionably toxic environment that should be avoided at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Retire. Hire someone to do your job for you, and do it correctly, and set a culture of value, compassion, and trust. Go do something else and let someone competent run your business. You are hurting everyone around you, doing permanent damage to a lot of young kids' careers. Stop it.

    Pros

    Good place to get your foot in the door at the entry level. You'll probably like your co-workers and it's a good place to make friends.

    Cons

    - This place gets cheap labor by preying on inexperienced engineers, supplies rock bottom salaries in general, and is solely focused on return on investments. This might work in the short run, but with high turnover and bad blood, new comers are forced to re-learn previously built systems without training or transition from the originators which has resulted in a culmination of stove-piped solutions with no real technical core.

    - The senior management has a servant/master mentality and if you are unfortunate to work under them you will be expected to provide a limitless amount of work and effort with very little incentives. For example, you will be told to write full 25 page proposals that aren't in your areas of expertise, are provided a mere 4 hours to perform research and are given a maximum of 16 hours to complete them. if you can't finish in this amount of time (it is highly unlikely that you would be able to), you are expected to do it on "your own time" and to respectfully decline is not a valid option.

    - if you plan on leaving the company be sure to use all of your vacation time beforehand unless you are prepared to fight a court battle to get compensated for it.

    - We were encouraged through email to write reviews saying how wonderful of a place to work it is. Half of the positive reviews on here seem fabricated -- many of them even have the EXACT same title.

    Advice to Management

    Look before you leap. Work on building a solid technical foundation and gathering the required resources before shooting to the stars. Think about getting an HR department if you continue to aspire for rapid growth. Buy your own coffee to give to customers during meetings instead of pirating it from the employee-run coffee group.
