    Solid Benefits But Poor Internal Communication

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Warrendale, PA

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsInternal 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Working as a Biz Developer at SAE

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNot many, I'll have to think about it. There were some first class people though working through some hard assignments.

    ConsJust 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!"

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Standards development organization for automotive, aerospace and commercial vehicle industries.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Warrendale, PA

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

    ConsEconomic 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.

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

    Corporate Sales Manager (Former Employee)
    Warrendale, PA

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

    ConsUnqualified 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 Senior ManagementStart 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.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood employer, great colleagues, working with and teaching about the latest technologies...Teachers are real life professionals. Nice people. Cheerful and user friendly administrative staff.

    ConsNothing specific...Overtime work happens very often...Small office space...
