    Pros

    The people who do the work are professional

    Cons

    Management is horrible! It's bad when they make the same mistakes over and over and expect different results. Blame everyone but themselves and won't accept responsibility. Incompetent Project Managers leads to bad work being put out.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the people who actually do the work for advice. Take responsibility for your failures. Don't criticize for honest feedback. Treat employees as human beings and not like you are better than they are.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to work on different kinds of engineering projects in US and overseas. Good co-workers.

    Cons

    Conflict prone management on big projects. Micro-management by managers to control contact with clients which inevitably led to incorrect relay of information and delays in project completion. Management always reluctant to train entry-level engineers. Too much finger pointing when things went wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Please offer training for employees to keep their skills updated. Do more employee reviews instead of one annual evaluation.

  11. A good company to work for.
