    I have been working at Truland Systems

    Pros

    Good project opportunities
    Diverse community
    Good benefits, tuition reimbursement(but not fees be careful)
    telecommuting work available
    Relatively good location on beltway

    Cons

    Upper management salaries not fair
    Lack of bonus is a huge incentive to find new jobs
    Lack of cost of living increase, let alone raise for performance is another incentive to find a new job
    Highly trained under paid employees are given low level tasks
    Union employees are paid dramatically higher for same tasks(AutoCAD)
    Total lack of collaborative effort between divisions of the corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top level management(IE The CEO) needs to reel in the second tier of office management. Information only goes one direction in the company(upward), and decisions about lower level employees are made without any sort of consultation of people who are directly involved with the consequences of such decisions.
