Pros

Invensys has a flexible work schedule, allows us to balance work and home life, decent benefits although they seem to decrease every year, challenging work, and good clients.

Cons

Pay is below industry. Even though i have opportunity to grow, the typical percent raise is 5%. They say their hands are tied and cannot do anything about it.

    Pros

    The pay is okay, the benefits are good. Some aspects of the work are challenging and enjoyable. There are people who try to "care" about you.

    Cons

    Growth is not really an important aspect of working here. You may have ideas on how to do things better, but unless you are in management you don't really get listened to.
    Management often uses a command and control (and sometimes threatening) approach to making people do work. Real team work is uncommon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are typically promoted to managers through demonstration of outstanding technical expertise in an area, however once becoming a manager, they continue to manage by imposing technical constraints on a team. They need to learn how to be managers of people instead of products.

    Former Employee - Senior Applications Engineer in Houston, TX

    I worked at Invensys

    Pros

    - Good place to learn automation & control
    - Good project opportunities, including international ones
    - Wide variety of projects (eg. Oil & Gas, Nuclear etc), with their own unique challenges
    - Lots of good employees, had several friends
    - Many good supervisors and mid level managers.

    Cons

    - Promotion from within was limited to lower/mid management. Senior management were in many cases outsiders with no industry experience
    - Compensation (pay) was not that good
    - Employee performance assessment was a joke.
    - Silo mentality. Each region is a P&L, so plenty of turf wars. I've seen 2 different regions trying to compete for the same project!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Hire/promote from within
    - Take a long hard look at the Cognizant deal. Do you really want to end up like Boeing with its 787?
    - Listen to your customers
    - While you may have some of the best technology (Foxboro, Tricon, ROMeo etc), sharpen up your sales/marketing
    - Move beyond the regional P&L model which breeds unhealthy internal strife.
