    Pros

    Very good company. You can learn a lot. Very good engineers. You can work on a lot of projects and develop your career.

    Cons

    You can be moved when a project is done from one customer to another. You can have also the luck to work years in a place.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more close to the employees. Work more to show to them that they are making the difference.

    Pros

    Learned a lot.
    Fair compensation.
    Had a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    CEO seemed to fall too in love with and then show too much distrust over individual managers. Individuals and the company were affected by his shifting opinions. Managers were promoted when they shouldn't have been, and conversely fired when they didn't deserve it.

    I worked at Cambric Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Developing CAD skills and technical consulting for international clients but no more then 2 years.

    Cons

    Weak management... The training program stops after the first year, even if they tell you that you will receive training from time to time through the first 3 years. They will promise you international experience... not going to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Change the management personal from Romania that had been educated through the communist era, they can't change.

    Pros

    This is a small company offering engineering services and the salary could be rewording if you have enough experience to perform well under a lot of stress and don't ask for too much help.
    You can learn a lot of things in this company and almost all the people are great.

    Cons

    Low pay for the amount of experience. The pay does not reflect the experience and it just depends on the place you are placed at the client side and how much they want to pay for you.
    Profit driven company rather than employee driven.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth. Take better care of your employees.

    Pros

    Pay was generally fairly generous if you performed well. However, company struggles included salary cuts at times, and this was sometimes handled poorly.

    Management somehow navigated through negative times when the company really had no business surviving.

    Most of the people there were great, and you got a "family" vibe that comes with a small company.

    Cons

    Most things were done on the cheap.

    Senior management would always focus on 1 or 2 employees and would make their life miserable until they left. Eventually just about everyone would make their way onto the list even though they had previous been among the trusted, stellar employees.

    At the end of the day, the company shows no loyalty to the employees, and as an employee if you make the mistake of showing loyalty to them - you'll regret it.

    Advice to Management

    I think senior management, and the company have some very positive qualities. Unfortunately, they sometimes treat employees unfairly, and don't give them enough credit to understand what's really going on behind the scenes. I know that my predecessor was treated unfairly even though I did not think so originally. However, I later learned the truth. I saw some similar treatment of others, and understand from others that this has been a long-standing problem within the company.

    The CEO can be really likeable, and also extremely frustrating. He pushes too hard at times, and can get paranoid over certain issues. Employees tend to either really like him, or detest him. I was somewhere in-between.
