The most brutal and ruthless company i've worked for, but its not all bad

Design Engineer (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

Prosinteresting work, some innovative products, nice people, great location adjacent to the Chula Vista marina, smart people in some of the lower levels of technical management

Conswhere do i start? management expects 50-60 hours worth of work in a 40 hour week. Many hourly employees work off the clock just to meet cost/schedule constraints. By California state law, this is illegal, but it happens anyway. If you dont perform to the level expected, you will be walked out in short order. Also, jobs are being shipped to low cost countries and people are being laid off as management tries to cut costs and please investors.

Advice to Senior Managementtry to practice what you preach and learn to have original ideas rather than copying ways that other large companies work.

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