Pros

Very challenging environment, work with smart people, Reasonable base salary, excellent bonus and profit sharing programs, excellent other perks, good job satisfaction

Cons

Office politics has gotten worse over years, sometimes decisions take longer time and can be frustrating, annual focal review process has been complicated but improving

Advice to Management

Improve how people's ideas are recognized. Too many managers and other peers with louder vocal chords take credit for others' ideas. Sometimes, excellent ideas are not adopted or acknowledged immediately and months/years later when they are adopted, the originator doesn't get any credit. In spite of management efforts, office politics has gotten bad. People are afraid to take risks (compared to 1980-1990s) or think outside the box because either failure is penalized or thoughts outside the box are not accpeted readily. Openness is taking a toll. All of the above have been management promises for years but as we integrate more and more new hires from other companies in a hurry, the old culture has gotten eroded or become incosistent. Needs re-focus.

    Pros

    Interesting advanced engineering systems / installations

    Cons

    Very poor employee morale. Very poor working environment / atmosphere. Very poor time management with employees (perhaps due to workloads) resulting in VERY common ('the norm') behaviour such as not to show up to pre-arranged meetings. Blame culture, particularly applied to Suppliers. Very common to find unapproachable, 'hot-headed' and unprofessional staff who think that hard nosed / kick-ass attitudes are the only way to get results from Suppliers.

    Advice to Management

    Review your hiring policies / practices. Spend some time and money finding true route causes for: lack of motivation, blame culture. Aim for a semi-pleasant work environment (at least). Don't think that due to the companies size that you will have an indispensable supply of Vendors who will choose to work for you when market conditions change

    Pros

    Challenging work, a sense of accomplishment daily, working with the best and smartest people in the Industry, opportunity to change roles and grow and learn new job skills. Great internal training and training is a focus for everyone, not just a few. The pay is excellent adn you manage your own time. They embrace innovation and new ideas. Can be a life long career stop with great beneifts. I was an employee for 10 years, left for a couple and am now back as a contract employee and feel like I am home again. Grass was not greener on the other side, but love being here as Consultant/ Contractor

    Cons

    The work is demanding and can be stressful. Comapny is filled with "Alphas / Drivers" and is not for the meek and quiet. ( May not be a Con, but is what it is)
