Pros

Germane has good people, interesting work, lots of opportunities to develop expertise if you are not afraid of a challenge. Germane's partnerships with other companies provides exposure to new technologies and key people at partners.

Cons

Small company mentality sometimes prevents the company from reaching the best solutions for problems. When i was there top management wasn't always on the same page.

    I worked at Germane Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The non management personnel are very dedicated and hard working.

    Cons

    Poor upper management. Goals are unrealistic. Upper management should be held accountable for poor performance. Upper management is not an advocate of promoting from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees before going outside for talent. The CEO should push upper management to become innovative. The current upper management does not offer much value to the company because they are always trying to be political and unaccountable.

    Pros

    Most of the people are very friendly and fun to work with. If you are hoping to make friends this is the right place. If you want a growing career. Look elsewhere.
    Production gets two 15 minute breaks where you can play basketball or foosball. Every Friday you get free breakfast. Events team does a good job of trying to bring back life to this company

    Cons

    Too much overhead is causing the ship to sink. There are way too many managers and vice presidents for such a small company. The main focus is on hiring people with big fancy titles in order for the company to come off as powerful. Unfortunately, the reality is that they don't get paid on performance and therefore, minimum effort is acceptable. There is a lack of promotion within for those who have been working in the front lines for many years. No road map for career development. Biggest issue is lack of training and no investment in current employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting on a show to look good on the surface. Lack of metrics and bias quality management system reports fails to reflect the current health of the company. Management needs to take responsibility on promoting continuous improvement. Blame game needs to stop and instead focus on preventative maintenance and corrective actions.

    If this is a true IT and Manufacturing company, then management needs to invest money on efficient processes, tools and professional training all across the board.
