    Pros

    It's consulting work so for Engineers times can be rather busy or really slow. Benefits are okay, but the best part is most departments work on Compressed Work Week so every other Friday is off for members. If you work hard it seems like there's a good path to leadership.

    Cons

    Because it's a bit of a small town company a lot of times department heads are in the small town of Muscatine, Iowa. Not a whole lot of people are eager to move here, though it's a nice place. A lot of the employees have been here for a very long time too so it's hard to move up and sometimes they are very stuck on how they want to do certain things.

    Pros

    The engineering work is pretty comprehensive and covers a variety of different types of work. The benefits have been great, and upfront.

    Cons

    Being a consulting company there are periods of being very busy and then periods of being slow.

    Advice to Management

    Good work, keep it up.

    Pros

    Employees are called members and are treated well. The company offers competitive benefits, and above average compensation. Management encourages personal development and employees are recognized for their performance and tenure.

    Cons

    Many employees have long tenure with the organization. This makes it difficult to implement change and trust new ideas. Employees in the engineering field have many opportunities for advancement, others in operations and administration do not.

    Solid ethics, fair to employees. Good vision at the top.

    Cons

    Hit by 2008 crisis, Compnay is recovering and expected to make great strides as we move into 2013-2014 budget year,

    Articulate details of visison. Move a little bit faster.

    Pros

    Excellent group of people to work with, opportunities for growth in some positions (but not in mine), feels like a family atmosphere, can go to anyone for help or advice. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    I feel that my salary was a bit on the low side, but it was fair. Not-so-great raises during the time I was there (3 years), not supportive about outside the box thinking, having the corporate office in Muscatine, IA lends itself to the good old boy network.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to innovate and be willing to step outside the box with things like working from home.


  9. As a newcomer, I was not nearly challenged enough, especially in my area of expertise.

    Pros

    Great group of people. Low stress environment. Pay was decent. Open door policy with anyone and you can always go for help.

    Cons

    Work wasn't interesting and when I was hired back, I wasn't allowed to shift into another appealing position. Bad chemistry among some co workers.

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Learned a lot while there and helped me direct my career where I wanted to go.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work given was very repetitive and can become a little tiresome, but that was mostly my in ability to make the most of my time.

    Advice to Management

    Give more engaging projects to incoming interns and assistants. Keep up the good work giving access to the engineers as it was very helpful in my development.

    Pros

    Flexible hours/schedule.
    Overtime work is either compensated by taking same number of hours off or with overtime pay.
    Good healthcare plan.
    Company has very solid financial health.

    Cons

    Compensation is below industry.
    Company needs more technical experts in certain areas.
    Slow to let go of those who under perform.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation needs to be increased. We are not attracting enough talent with the current compensation levels and talented individuals are leaving to go elsewhere to get more money. Also, recruiting needs to be expanded to top tier schools.
