Good projects but inefficient management style

Engineer (Current Employee)

ProsGood benefit and 401k employer matching. Good working environment. Collegues are good to work with. Competitive pay for new hires. Company is well respected in the industry and have some of the renowned projects that look good on resume.

ConsDon't expect to have a high learning curve at a big company like that. Often they will put young engineers in a specific discipline and they are unlikely to get out of it. Engineers don't get to pick what they want to work on, projects are pretty much assigned by the management team.

They care a big deal about TOJ and people are just a number to them. The company was making good revenues but still had staff reduction because they didn't meet their goal. Office moral is at all time low because the left behind staff are unsure of their future.

Communication between upper management and staff is very weak, almost none. The performance review system is inefficient to ensure proper career advancement. Often career advancement of young engineers are neglected.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should continuously follow up with staff's performance review rather than just once a year. Take a good look of who's working on what. Reward the ones who work really hard and cut the ones who are just hanging out. Stop abusing young engineers and should treat them with more respect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
