    Solid Benefits But Poor Internal Communication

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Warrendale, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Warrendale, PA

    I worked at SAE International full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. Employment provides access to top automotive professionals through the business. SAE also hosts events and creates publications, providing additional opportunities to meet, interact, and experience a spectrum of the automotive-related industries. Adequate in-house gym and cafeteria are easily accessible. Some exercise classes/clubs run on premise.

    Cons

    Internal department to department communication is poor. Groups are territorial to the point of negatively impacting project completion and quality. Significant operational inertia: the 100 year old company does not change quickly. Limited accountability: substandard work is not often improved.

    I worked at SAE International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Historically, SAE has been very employee-focused and contributed to the local community.

    Cons

    Economic downturn and market forces in the last decade have taken a serious toll on SAE. Ongoing staff reductions have contributed to the very high stress level.

    I worked at SAE International full-time

    Pros

    Not many, I'll have to think about it. There were some first class people though working through some hard assignments.

    Cons

    Just won't listen to your comments or suggestions. Also gives assignments that will not work even if you tell them directly or indirectly. "Do it!"

    A Ship Sinking Fast Under the Weight of Bad Management and Cronyism

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Corporate Sales Manager in Warrendale, PA
    Former Employee - Corporate Sales Manager in Warrendale, PA

    I worked at SAE International

    Pros

    Decent Salary for The Area, Pretty Campus, Good Health Benefits

    Cons

    Unqualified people in Management Position. Cronyism, Secrecy and Overly Political. New Executive running organization lacks vision and has changed culture from openess to one of intrigue and division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring more about the organization than your personal career paths, or soon it will no longer exist. Your lack of vision is killing a 100 year plus organization.
