Great Potential with Poor Executive Management

Engineer (Current Employee) Frederick, MD

ProsThere are many opportunities to strengthen your skills and perform stretch assignments. There is ample potential for company growth based on the industry.

ConsThe executive management is fairly short sighted because they are cutting costs to save their bottom dollar for the next couple of months while hurting employees (Engineered Solutions) salaries and benefits. They are difficult to negotiate salaries when they close a facility down. Unfortunately, 4-5 hours of travel to and from the job doesn't make sense, which is forcing many seasoned engineers to leave the company. Now, the company doesn't have the intellectual resources to win and maintain jobs. Customers will begin pulling the plug on programs and the Engineered Solutions sector will fall apart.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider the long term effects of your (executive, not managers) decisions. Try to compensate your employees for the inconvenience of a daily 4-5 hour drive. Consider the talent pool in the Baltimore/DC metro area instead of the Easton (farmers, hunters) area. No one wants to commute to Easton.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
