    Decent place to work

    Contact Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is a very established company. Among the people that work there is a lot of knowledge and experience, so typically I was able to find answers whenever needed. Since it was a large company, there were lots of opportunities for advancement, whether it was at your current site, or a different site. There were well esablished career paths, whether you wanted to take a technical or management route.

    ConsThe company was very conservative - sometimes it was hard if you have a good idea, but it may not come to fruition becase there may be a small amount of risk involved. The pay was okay, but there was no bonus, which is poor compared to other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more visible to the people that work there. That way you don't appear as just "those guys upstairs."

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ConsCan be boring at times. High competition for promotions. Easy for an employee to be forgotten. Highly levereged employees. Expected long hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to adapt new management concepts into the organizational structure. Structure needs to be more flat. Fewer managers and more workers. Leverage the managers not the workers.
