I have been working at FEI

Pros

Some of the people are great, Money is ok... benefits were ok..

Cons

They allow on job Bullying, and there is really no clear process. I was very disappointed with the company totally.. Wish I never worked there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Workplace Harassment, I put up with it for 9 months, till I just could not state it anymore... one was replaced by a second one... company policy needs work

    I have been working at FEI

    Pros

    Intellectually open and dynamic engineering company,It is possible to work and make a difference at this company, however don't expect to be rewarded for it,
    A lot of possibilities for travel and encountering different cultures,

    Cons

    Hampered by horrendously bad communication and lack of investment in the tools required to share knowledge and improve operations.
    A stated above there is no reward for performance at this company -- the inverse is true as well, doing nothing and keeping to yourself will net you the same payrise.
    Unwieldy corporate culture -- departments are driven by people not processes, some of the people are incredibly intelligent, the majority are so so performers who would be better served working for the somebody like GE or Intel.
    Email is the only system that reliably works so everything gets done on outlook -- there are other tools but the communication culture is so bad that nobody has the discipline to use them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will improve the bottom line by ranking and yanking -- with better information systems you can metric the performance better and drive the company in the right direction culturally rather than trying to drive the company to better numbers using treacherous processes -- huge potential for growth
