Pros

Large company with stability. Politically correct. Lots of opportunities for growth. I have enjoyed working with almost everyone there. They have always tried to treat me fairly.

Cons

They eliminated their pension plan for new hires and replaced it with 401K participation. The last couple of years, they have hired a lot of people in anticipation of contracts. They lost several key contracts and had a 5% reduction of force. I was laid off just short of retirement.

Advice to Management

Lay off those who fail to contribute before you lay off contributing members. You have a lot of solid performers who are really nervous.

  1. CSW leadership was generally pretty competent with the exception of the HR leadership.

    Pros

    Excellent technical talent and very good products. The employee workforce was very skilled and dedicated.

    Cons

    Some of the senior leadership became complacent and many of the most recent business decisions resulted in dramatic overspending on some projects. Seems to be too much infighting among senior managers and mid-level managers. There areh't enough checks and balances to keep incompetent management from making poor business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    The org needs to be flattened (too many directors and managers). More decision-making needs to be delegated to subordinate employees. Need to reduce favoritism that runs rampant throughtout the org.


  2. Okay

    Pros

    Great work life balance, decent salary, it could be better but also could be much worst

    Cons

    The hierarchy is a bit convoluted, a large company with a large company feel, no sense of community
