    Some great people, but no growth opportunities.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFriendly and family feel culture. Most people are very nice, very interesting characters. Good Work-life balance. Events team is cool and does a great job with outside company activities.

    ConsNo guidance from leadership, compensation is on the lower end.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate competitively, develop career advancement road-maps for your employees. Hire from with-in!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Management does not care

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood workers, compensation is not bad, they have free snacks. Overall very clean place as far as manufacturing environment goes.

    ConsThere is no growth opportunity, they keep changing people's title but position is the same. Upper management is not really good. Also it is not fun listening Christian prayers during company events. There are a lot of different cultures in the room and when they do that they are dismissing the rest. It’s not appropriate. Another concern is not having hr and high turn over. I see great people leaving due to management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice People, terrible upper management

    (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are a lot of nice people working at Germane. The events teams schedule company activities on a regular basis. Interesting work.

    ConsUpper management makes irrational decisions on a consistent basis. The CEO is always late for work and meetings. The CEO doesn't take into account the employee's work /life balance. When orders are placed they are usually scheduled with unrealistic ship dates thus there is always excessive OT. The upper management has a place the blame style (point the finger). They do not look into finding the root cause of issues. The pay for the organization is setup like a pyramid structure. The floor workers are paid penny's while the executive make over 200K. There is very little opportunity to move up within Germane. They usually do not promote from within even though they have qualified personnel in house.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEarn your pay. Make decisions after performing your due diligence. Give current employees a valid chance before hiring from the outside. Be realistic of what your people are capable of. The CEO needs to set a better example for her employees and be on time. The CEO should have a clue of what is actually going on in the facility rather than relying on the information given to her by her VP's.

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

    Interesting place to work

    Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsGermane has good people, interesting work, lots of opportunities to develop expertise if you are not afraid of a challenge. Germane's partnerships with other companies provides exposure to new technologies and key people at partners.

    ConsSmall company mentality sometimes prevents the company from reaching the best solutions for problems. When i was there top management wasn't always on the same page.
