    Engineer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsActivities to bring people together

    ConsWatch out - they LIE at Interviews. They leave out details. They will make the position sound better than the reality. They SHOULD tell prospective Employees the reality so they can make an informed decision.
    Mgmt manipulates.
    They aggressive push to work you like a dog (if they can push an engineer to work 60 or 80 hours, but only pay them for 40 hours, well it just benefits the Employer).

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop lying, manipulating, and being hostile.
    Be honest, up front and respectful.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pay attention to the 'little' people

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsNobody is micro-managing me and there's flexibility to work the 9/80 schedule.

    ConsEverything is an emergency in terms of deadlines and there seems to be a strange vibe in terms of culture about the place....no one really likes working with the senior managers either....it's all a bit bizarre really. Plus, there is a definite concern for the bottom dollar and I agree that each office is run completely differently, so one office may have great projects, others not such great projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate, communicate, communicate and provide better feedback and try to find rapport with the little people; after all we are the ones helping to get the dog work done.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
