company in need of serious new direction

Engineer (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

Prosgood hard working employees, 9/80 schedule, few good managers, few layoffs

Consvery young management lacking direction for the business units, promotions based on favourites, management thinks internationals are glad to have a job, lately became very disfunctional with diffrences in executive management.

Advice to Senior Managementtake a deeper look at who is running business units, their lack of experience will take this company onto losses

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: 9/80, vacation package, nice office Cons: Terrible management not too efficient or skilled, some of them are very young for management.
