    Pros

    The office location is perfect. The procedures and processes are ethical and followed.

    Cons

    Upper management lacks vision and losing work base. The benefits have been drastically cut to cut costs. However no new work seems to be coming in based on lower costs.

    Advice to Management

    Focus business development and invest in growing business.

    Pros

    Benifits package and vacation time is very good.

    Cons

    They seem to think that engineering staff are here to serve the "professional staff". The company is turning into an admin company not a development company. But it’s not surprising when all of the senior management is accountants and lawyers not engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus on being a technology company again. The paper pushers are here only to execute what technologies that are developed. And ask your self why is hundreds of thousands of dollars set aside to get a degree in business management but none to take refresher courses in the latest technologies coming down the pike, just because it’s not a degree course! So what your saying is as an engineer I can get a paid for degree in accounting but I can’t stay current in my field?
