Lackluster job with very little career growth or training, lots of daily Catch-22s that you cannot avoid

Senior Systems Engineer II (Former Employee)
Tucson, AZ

ProsDecent pay and benefits, but I can't say much better about this place. What you get when you start is what you'll be making when you leave.

ConsAdvancement only through high school style politics. Pigeon hole career paths. Struggle for resources to get your job done.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrop the petty politics, let people do the work they need to do, and review them on that basis (and not review them on their political kissing-up)

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