Started out well, became a roller coaster, now is a disaster

Project Engineer (Current Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

ProsDISCLAIMER; I am a contractor assigned to RR.

Matrix organization allows the company to dynamically relocate employees where needed so speedbumps (program cancellations for example) don't immediately lead to layoffs.

Good Pay. Generally helpful and friendly employees.

ConsHot Desking?!? Really?!? Lockers? No personal items on desks???

The office enviroment is the worst I've ever persnally endured and is now going to a smaller location where they planned for 1.2 employees per desk!

No consistency in first-level management. I've had four in two years Best Ever -> Worst ever -> Great -> and now so-so. The second one actually got me fired but was rehired after six-weeks off.

Health benefits are terrible. $7000 out of pocket threshhold. Company funds an HSA for $1000. The balance is on the employee.

Nearly impossible to hire on direct. 49 applications, 4 interviews, nothing. One interview with FedEx: hired!

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management needs to reduce the permatemp workforce and work harder to retain valued talent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Started out great then fizzled to extremely disappointing
