Pros

Lots of potential. Great people in lower management and shop facility. Decent benefits and fair personal time options. Decent facility and adequate tools for doing the job, compared to some shops. Most coworkers are extremely intelligent and dependable. Most people really want to do the right thing.

Cons

Lower than average pay scale for some key positions. The shop can be rather warm and uncomfortable at times in the summer. Management has no hesitation in criticism, but lacks the background and knowledge to offer anything constructive. There is no plan about the direction of the company which makes many people concerned about the future. More than half of the employees are open, if not steadily looking, for other career opportunities for fear of such an unstable future. The company is infected with rear-huggers and gossip-queens to get themselves ahead and in a lot of cases it works.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a plan before some really good people and opportunities are lost. Work on the company reputation in the Hanford area - the upper management seems clueless to the outside trashing of the company. Realize that the contacts in this community do talk and perhaps try not to continually insult existing or potential customers. Do not convince yourselves that raises and bonuses will motivate everyone eligible for such - some are true team players that find it insulting and far from motivating.

    I worked at Mid Columbia Engineering

    Pros

    Great people to work with, lots of opportunity to improve things and expand the business. In a market that will continue to have a need for employees (engineering and staffing). As the Energy Market grows, this business will continue to grow.

    Cons

    Company in transition and expanding into new markets to expand the business makes it tough to know if job will continue

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful about expanding the business into areas that are debt-ridden. As much as possible streamline and reduce debt loads to have a better cash position in the business. Stay current with market trends, develop team members with growth plan of some kind.

    I have been working at Mid Columbia Engineering as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Rate of pay was good.

    Cons

    No word from them since my short contract ended. Employees are far too disposable these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need more long term positions. We can't afford to support our families on 3 months of employment per year.
