Good company to work for, but headed in the wrong direction

Network Engineer I (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsGreat team. Team was very intelligent and highly technical. Senior engineers are great mentors to junior engineers. It was a great place to work and learn. If you came in as a junior, you would gain experience at an exponential rate and leave almost a senior. Work from home policy was also very beneficial.

ConsCompany is starting to outsource a lot of work to India. Many US engineers are being replaced, and the trend is only continuing in that direction. Heard of recent layoffs as well.

Advice to Senior ManagementOutsourcing to India is not the solution!

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

    The Worst Career Move Possible

    Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
    Wayne, PA
