    Pros

    Great if you are a white guy.

    Cons

    While attending a meeting of ~45 operations leaders from the entire company, 2 women were included and 3 minority males (from non- US subsidiaries), I asked one executive what the diversity and inclusion policy for the corporation was. His response, “we don’t have a diversity problem.” If you have a dissenting opinion and are female, it is best to keep quiet if you want to work here. Regardless of gender, you are encouraged to be on the band wagon or you get squeezed out. The culture of the company is stuck in the “1950’s good old boy” era. The new CEO is so busy executing his strategy and making a name for himself rather than focusing on the human capital right under his nose. If you want to be a key supplier to the company, it helps if you were buddies with a member of the corporate procurement team.

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed atmosphere/ decent pay

    Cons

    No seniority. When it gets slow they’ll lay-off people who’ve been there for 10+ years and keep people they recently hired. Also, they don’t call back lay-offs.

    Friendly, easy, plenty of room for improvement

    There isn't any math to back up any of the parts they make. I doubt if a lot of the simulations are correct.

    Great place to work.Very family oriented. A great opportunity to grow and learn new technology's. Nice family type environment.

    Very customer oriented to the point that they allow customers to dictate project deadlines. Management needs to make a stand, and say no that's unrealistic to upper management.
