My skills have improved, but you will not be compensated fairly based on your work ethic.

Pros

There's job stability as this company if you do your job and you're not stupid and you don't mess up. Management does treat employees with respect, which is a plus, but they just aren't involved with the work being done on the floor... and they get compensated well! It's ludicrous. Bottom employees work well, only a small margin though. Most are idiots.

Cons

Management often doesn't communicate well with the employees that are doing the real work and can make the important decisions; poor department communication; lazy employees that do not suffer any repercussions from management because management isn't involved; poor salaries.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication and involvement is needed on management's part. Often it seems the lowest paid employees do the most work and are the most competent. Managers get to high levels purely based off of time spent with the company, not the ability to improve the company, generate revenue, build customers, or use cost-cutting methods. Extremely poor communication and a lack of involvement, absolutely no hands-on work done by the managers. Even poor e-mailing response I've experienced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has been work put forth to show what needs to be done to advance one's career, now there needs to be more follow up from management to show where an individual is regarding their promotional status.

    Pros

    Great minds to work with in R/D. A chance to work on new projects every day. Friendly atmosphere with colleagues.

    Cons

    Leadership is poor. Lack of vision. High level positions given and held to incompetent individuals. pay is at the lowere end of industry averages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Lead by example. Listen to your engineers. Accountability at all levels. Don't rely on MBA's outside our industry!
