I worked at REI Systems full-time

Pros

- very friendly coworkers
- you will meet few very smart people
- upper management is hands on and tries to re-enforce a healthy culture
- depending on the project, you will get exposed and experienced

Cons

-on most projects , 40 hr weeks do not cut it , you need to put 50-60 hrs to be in good terms with the managers, leaving after working 8 hrs will raise eyebrows around you.
- on most projects, it is expected that you work on weekends when necessary, your personal time WILL be sacrificed to impress the client, you are expected to embrace this culture
- if you don't know how much you are worth in the market, they will take advantage of you
- if the PM over promised the client , you will pay the price to fulfill unrealistic expectations. you will have to put your personal time to cover up for the PMs mistakes, some PMs will also try to make it your fault so you feel obliged to work 80 hr weeks to catch up.
- PMs usually only care about the project profit to impress the upper managers, although not uncommon, but it goes to the extreme.
- Sometimes you will feel like an independent contractor where no one cares about your career path or well being .
- maybe around 8 out of 10 employees are on H1 visa, that influences the work culture and salaries (usually h1 visa employees are more desperate and tolerate abuse in terms of work hrs or compensation)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mid level managers need serious work, and do not expect your employees to stay loyal to the company if they feel abused.

    I worked at REI Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company has a good reputation with its customers and they are generally very satisfied. The senior management cares about the company and tries to promote healthy work environment. The corporate culture is good.

    Cons

    There are few bad managers who play politics and try to be dominant. They don't know how to talk to people and goes out of their way to prove their dominance. Why would anyone want to work with such people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees can't complain about their managers. Find and Fire these managers/resource managers.
    They can't be trained.
