I worked at REI Systems full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Most of the people are good people to work with and are rather intelligent.

Cons

Management at the program manager level is horrible. Make ridiculous commitments to customers for which the engineers have to break their backs to meet. When these ridiculous commitments are actually met, who is rewarded for it? The managers....not the engineers are rewarded for meeting these goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your engineers! They are the ones that actually do the work....not the managers.

    I have been working at REI Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You do get chance to learn new things in first few months of your tenure at REI

    Cons

    PMs do not care, how much ever you work, they always expect employee to work for more than 10 hrs a day.

    Life here sucks... you cannot spend a single evening with your family, you get calls when on vacation or offline from communicator..

    there are lot of senior people, who are in the company for 8+ years, they think employees are slaves.. keep putting pressure on employees, and keep them ALWAYS under stress..

    Lot of blame games and politics, few people have developed out of office relationships with the seniors, they do not work at all and keep bitching about peers / fellow employees to the PMs / resource managers.

    Generally people are hied for associate position and the company tries to keep them on low salary as many days as possible.

    Timesheets are also a pain here, as full time employees have to justify every minute of their work like contractors. In order to get full salary at the end of the pay period, every employee has to justify each and every minute of their work hrs spent.

    After all this hard work also, do not expect recognition unless you have out of office friendship with managers.

    Do not expect bonus, if you get an award in the same year. According to REI management
    Performance excellence monetary award / referral money / Yearly bonus are all the some, all the employees get only one of the above in an year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    change the environment of slavery and let people grow. all managers needs to improve.
    Culture should change
