Current Employee - Senior Network Engineer

I have been working at FGS full-time for more than a year

Pros

• As a proactive engineer the company allows you implement better working solutions.
• Great communication with down range leadership.
• Small company so you really get to know people in your division.
• They hire higher caliber technicians and engineers.
• Flexible hours as long as the customer authorize the flexibility.
• Good coworkers. They make it a pleasure to come to work. Kind of like hanging out with friends that happen to be into IT as much as you.

Cons

• Could do better in recognizing high performers.
• Could do better in establishing goals and timelines for projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

• Point out high performers. Competition between employees can be a good thing is presented correctly.
• Invest in employees that seem to be “go to” or “go getters” it builds a brand and employee loyalty.
• Base salary raises by work performance and do not try to be fair to everyone. Those who work hard should be compensated for the work they do over those who are non performers.

    Going downhill from a company that cared about people to a company that cares about the bottom line.

    I have been working at FGS full-time

    Pros

    Pay well, some fairly sharp and nice people also. Emphasizing the word "some".

    Cons

    Always have had a lot of Nepotism. Also a lot of favoritism, not very professional at times. Short term thinking cheap penny pinchers. Hired some complete morons which leaves the competent people to do all the work while they pay uneducated "recommended by a buddy" people the same pay as people who are highly educated, credentialed, ect. Slap in the face to those who further themselves. Also promise training and investment in the employee but all words.... never happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck in continuing to get contracts when you are treating your talent like crap. Very short term thinking. Prediction: FGS will be gone in 3-5 years.
