Great people there but workload is grueling.

Pros

Great people, lots of opportunity to advance

Cons

They seem to bid very low on projects and then scramble to find resources and overwork teams in the process. Lots of disorganization in project management between departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees more and your stockholders less.

    Pros

    The Roth 401(k) option was nice to have. There is a lot of work to do and this could have been a very good thing, however, there were significant downsides. My coworkers were good people and I really liked my manager. After all, we were in the same boat.

    Cons

    My job description changed the day I joined the company and I was not going to be doing the job that I accepted. I would not have accepted the job I ended up doing. Work hours are very long due to the heavy workload and an unwillingness to staff projects appropriately. Travel was excessive so my work-life balance went out the window.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop misrepresenting the job during the interview process. Please provide adequate training, rather than seat-of-the-pants, just-in-time training.
