    Great place to work with flexible work hours! M

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    Pros- Half day Fridays between Memorial and Labor days (work four 9 full and 1 half day)
    - Great benefits
    - A lot of extra curricular activities/groups to join within the organization.
    - Corporate responsibility is apparent in upper leadership and cascades top down.
    - Highly focused on ethics and training employees.

    Cons- Employee growth opportunities at times seems to be lacking.
    - Cubed environment feels cramped and uninviting at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on following through with employee growth initiatives and offer more employee incentives/perks.

    Great Company

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsBeing such a large company, you would expect a strict fast-paced environment. However, this is not the case. While there are deadlines to be met and plenty of work to do, in many cases your left to complete it at your own pace; as long as you're meeting deadlines of course. Topped off with a large host of benefits and friendly staff members, it's a great environment for anyone looking for long-term employment or even to gain some valuable experience before moving on.

    ConsWhile co-workers do tend to be friendly, many of the older employees that make up a vast majority of the company tend to be stuck in there way, straying away from new processes that interfere with "their way of doing things."

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep an open mind to new innovations and don't be afraid to enforce them to make things "easier" in the long run.

    Stodgy, old company run like a stodgy old company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThe work; highly-technical model predictive control; side-by-side with the sharpest tacks in the box.

    ConsStodgy, old company run like a stodgy old company buying innovations they know nothing about; running a software company like a sweatshop.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the way.

    Company is highly ethical

    ConsWork life balance can be out of whack - hours can be demanding
