Good but performance and raise are not proportional.

Good benefits and brand name

Too much bureaucracy and performance and lack of merit based pay.

Advice to Management

Be a little more open minded and value talent based on the aptitude and attitude rather than the number of years experience.

    Pros

    Good compensation for younger employees Well defined work and technical environment Great ability to move around in the company Good potential for international travel, if you like that kind of stuff

    Cons

    Have decided to "global grade" the entire company which has resulted in significant benefit reductions for mid level senior engineers. Usually associated with multiple level demotions, loss of merit increases, and loss of executive bonus. Also, relocation of company to smaller facility downtown. Senior engineers now being given 3'X4 work area instead of previous office work environment. Do I need to explain what "hot-desking" is?

    Advice to Management

    My advice to you is what my parents gave to me. Think before you act. If you think you are going to get senior engineers to stay while demoting them, cutting their pay, and removing them from the executive bonus program you're mistaken. The gas turbine job market is huge on a world-side basis. All I had to do was wait a year, and I got a $33K raise and a 15% increase in my bonus, along with 401K, and company ownership equity. Good luck RR, you'll need it. Regarding John Rishton, he just started so he hasn't had time to screw it up yet.

    Pros

    Where else do you as an intern have the opportunity to walk around the factory, meet with executives, and make meaningful contributions to projects that are on the leading edge of technology in their field.

    Cons

    Some managers do not provide enough direction and work at the start, however this ends up being a good thing as it causes you to grow your confidence and seek your own tasks and to do the work that you feel is necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Have specific assignments you want interns to do.
