Recent Unpleasant Changes

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGrea, dedicated cco-workers. Intetesting, varied work.when i first jpined the company, i had an upper management position. And i eas trested accordingly. I could also count pn other employees. They were hard workers. Management was informal

ConsThe company has started running scared. Most of Systems Div work is government and middle east based. Availble contracts are diminishing. Management is reacting poorly, making abrupt and short-sigjted decisions. People are circling the wagons and the once great work environment is suffering.

Advice to Senior ManagementDont become chicken little. Keep the faith in employees. You hired people because you needed them. Slash and burn when this expertise is most needed is shortsighted.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
