Pros

Many opportunities to work on different kinds of engineering projects in US and overseas. Good co-workers.

Cons

Conflict prone management on big projects. Micro-management by managers to control contact with clients which inevitably led to incorrect relay of information and delays in project completion. Management always reluctant to train entry-level engineers. Too much finger pointing when things went wrong.

Advice to Management

Please offer training for employees to keep their skills updated. Do more employee reviews instead of one annual evaluation.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours; ESOP program is great; 401K package is mediocre; PM+ is a very nice tool for managing a project

    Cons

    Commaraderie is lacking; management is very, very slow to correct problems; need to threaten to leave to get fairly compensated; compensation is not comensurate with contributions; one can be incompetent and still get raises; will not provide new desktop computer unless yours breaks - we have some antiques around here.

    Advice to Management

    Need a better personnel review procedure. In other words, why does SNC tolerate (and reward) people that are either incompetent or are not doing their jobs?
