I have been working at Cooley Group full-time (Less than a year)
Great pay, small company, awesome co/workers on manufacturing level, potential
Rude and disrespectful upper management, poor to no training, no ethics, good ol'boy culture, no organization at all, no SOPs, hardly anything is documented for working purposes, make up rules as they go, expect accountability from employees but not management, demanding more from employees and give less
Advice to Management
Respect for employees in general, provide proper training and give feedback, work on boosting moral and providing an ethical culture
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cooley Group (Providence, RI) in February 2011.
The interview process had a phone screen, a phone interview, and face to face interviews with key personnel. The CEO spoke at length about their high level goals, and HR seemed a bit clueless, but departmental interview was very substantive and informative. Great dialog helped me to see where I could contribute.
Very standard offer/acceptance process.
