    Appalling lack of trust for the employees

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Waukesha, WI

    ProsGreat clients; decent travel opportunities; solid (technical) reputation

    ConsTurnover, particularly of managers is the highest of any firm I've seen (anywhere).

    If your last name isnt Giles, you are kept on a short leash and are not to be trusted.

    Work rules are scarey for a professional services firm

    Advice to Senior ManagementLoosen up, trust your people, or replace them.

    Implement that stock plan you keep talking about

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Waste of professional time

    Staff Engineer (Former Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsSome of the co-workers have good reputations in their field. Technical equipment is above average for this geographic area.

    ConsEmployee contract - have an attorney review before signing! Micro management, no culture, no community give-back, very sue happy - look them up to see for yourself. This is the smallest firm I know of that has a full time attorney on staff, or maybe even two. Management is not trustworthy, and there is no team mentality. Very profit center orientated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your employees, you are very furtunate to have kept the current staff. You lost alot of good engineers because of lack of trust, no stock options, and micro-managing. It should be enjoyable to show up at work, not wondering if ownership is having a bad day and will take it out on employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrating and inconsistent

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Waukesha, WI

    ProsEmployee's that are non-family related (with a few exceptions) are great to work with and are very knowledgeable in their areas.

    ConsGiles Engineering is a family run company and the family can give very mixed signals, if they give any feedback at all. They do not communicate very well with one another or the employee's. They would rather send an email than have a converstaion. Every policy that is made favor's their own interest's and leaves nothing to their employee's who they work into the ground.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
