I have been working at Focus Corporation full-time (more than an year)

Pros

the work atmosphere and colleagues are great, professional development is encouraged, most Manager's doors and ears are open for discussion.

Cons

Not much significant. There needs some improvement in the appraisal process. Good proforming employees should be rewarded little better than underperforming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employee focused training seem vital.

    Pros

    Left on own to decide version of vision for new depts. development.

    Cons

    No mgmt. assistance given to further develop version of vision for new dept. development. Later on there was an expectancy to work extra hours. Then there was the expectancy to work above one's job description with no extra pay compensation allowable. Then there was an expectancy to take orders from other team members not associated with said new dept. Rather than the actual manager taking charge ie. actual manager was too busy, reluctant or unsure to take full responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Life's to short to stay in a job that has become miserable due to lack of respect or due consideration from Management.

    I worked at Focus Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Above average pay for most positions. Some independence - depends on manager/location. Unbelievably - they've still managed to retain some pretty decent engineers. Some locations/disciplines would be a good place to start a career.

    Cons

    Hire and fire mentality, particularly in non-oil and gas engineering. Extremely high turn-over in some locations (a great question for HR during your interview!). Chaotic organizational structure. Unattractive stock plan (if you're offered stocks - get professional advice). No banked time. Often worked 60+ hrs/wk. No real long term mentality. Hard to see a "career" here.
