Promising technology.... but poor usage of employee's talents

Engineer (Current Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

Pros-Flex time and excellent life/work balance
-Good location & free coffee machine
-Interesting technology

Cons-No training, nor mentorship offered
-Young department that is flying from the seat of their pants
-Below market salary
-Horrid, bullish HR department
-Toxic office atmosphere
-Coworkers hoard business knowledge and only give it out in bits and pieces

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company is growing rapidly, but the new hires are not being utilized at all. Make sure department managers and supervisors get employees up to speed on Westport tech and processes, rather then leave employees to chicken scratch for needed information to do his/her job.

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