I worked at SimplexGrinnell full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Experienced employees, some are experts in the field, but can be very negatively competitive.

Cons

Bottom line driven, short sighted. If the company misses the target for a quarter, head count reduction is THE "solution". Leaders talk diversity, but there is zero diversity in the president and his direct reports.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a collaborative environment, promote teamwork, and truly walk the talk of diversity.

    Management mistreats there employees, no leadership from office managers, Management is unorganized and doesn't assist employees in the field, leaves you out to dry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the guys in the field with more respect and give them the tools to do there jobs instead of worrying about guy's GPS in vehicles, use the GPS to help us work and not as a spying tool.
