As EE was very satisfied with assignment however when projects declined due to economy, I was let go due to staff reduct

Project Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsGreat reputation, staffing very personable

ConsMany of projects are in fossile fuel power generation which at this time is in decline due to political decisions. Exit from company was untimely, as I was considering other opportunities when I hired on with S&L. My initial interviews with my boss and actually confirmed when I was hired was that it was to be long term position. My performance was never challenged so it was a bit disappointing to be laid off and not called back even though my performance was satisfactory or above expectations.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more EE focused interaction between S&L HR and EE at separation and also greater interface at times of possible rehire. HR did NOT review exit benefits, for Unemployment or disability or LT disability at all.....brief call from a staff member only....followed up with ZERO feedback or reemployment support.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
