At best a family atmosphere. The atmosphere tries to encourage creativity and innovation. I met some good people here....they all left.
No promotion potential unless you are a family member. Most projects are more marketing and self delusion rather than true scientific or engineering innovation. This company doesn't gauge itself off any real industry standards. It believes its own marketing.
Advice to Management
Create a basic business structure that holds people accountable and promotion can take place. Engineering and creativity can still take place but your best people will leave if there is no potential for improvement and everything is left up to "Mom and Dad". Base your achievements off of comparison in your industry, not off of the meager technology sector of Hawaii. Then you'll get a realistic gauge of where you stand. Money won from contracts should go to support those contracts, not extravagant vacations for leadership as you deny workers any raises for years. If you hire an engineer for a field of expertise you should probably allow him to function in that field.
