Pros

If your fresh out of the military good for a starting posistion but bad for someone looking for the moon money gone your gone

Cons

Tuition reimbursment will not work if your in a program not under the ABET certifications and remeber they pay for it you owe them 1 year so if your commited to low salary then this is the place for you

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be fair with new hires and aknowlege indivitudals who are activity engaged with personnel development. Time cards ya so who watches the time approvers when they leave up to 10 hours early each week? - Some leads have no integrity

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Convenient location which resulted in a reasonable commute to work.

    Cons

    - The majority of the Lab Equipment in the Electrical Engineering lab was purchased in the 1970’s. In addition, there is no lab technician or lab manager to organize the lab and maintain the equipment due to budgetary reasons.

    - Engineers are not given the authority to make decisions or address road blocks. However, Engineers are held responsible for the assigned task by management.

    - Questionable practices in regard to charging of labor hours to government contracts.

    - Management refuses to write trip reports or inform the engineers of changes that affect requirements, schedules, or budgets. Engineers must call the customer to determine what changes management has agreed too. In regard to this problem one co-worker pointed out the fact that if a manager does not write it down the manager cannot be held responsible.

    - The small training budget is generally allocated to the recent college graduates. Long time employees in management positions will admit to never having completed a management training class. In addition, there is no budget or training program for mid level or senior level engineers.

    - The work is mainly low technology. Challenging high tech work is subcontracted out.

    - Insubordination issues by employees are not addressed by management in a timely manner.

    - Unknowingly, two different groups of people will be assigned the same task by the same manager thus duplicating effort. The result is overcharging the customer and over running the project budget.

    - Management ranks the employees. Rankings are generally dependent on management’s perception or familiarity with the employee as a result the employees at the bottom of the rankings are not necessarily the low performers. Low ranking employees are Involuntary terminated in staff reductions.

    - Personal vehicles are routinely vandalized in the parking lot.

    - Medical coverage is reduced by 10% on a yearly basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute a management training program. Replace the management with a more aggressive professional management willing to develop proprietary technologies.

    Cease the yearly decrease in benefits.

    Come clean in regard to your billing and time charging practices. Institute a more rigorous financial process the result might be improved profitability.

    Pros

    1) A lot of time off.
    2) No work related stress what so ever.
    3) If your in school this is the perfect job to have since out of an 8hr work day you really only have 40 min of true work.
    4) get paid to surf the internet.
    5) As soon as I'm done with school or a better oppurtunity I'm out.

    Cons

    1) No stress what so ever so after 1 day alittle stress would be welcomed since you can only surf the internt so long.
    2) No room for growth if your interested in security.
    3) Low pay but what can you expext with a job were all you do is sit and watch movies online.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees and maybe they will stay
