    Pros

    Good company benefits are not to bad

    Cons

    Engineers do not make decisions it is left up to contract engineers to make decisions and older workforce forced retirement all younger management that has no clue what they have lost

    Advice to Management

    Look what you allowed to walk away all the experience or forced retirement

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits, Location, the People. Very generous vacation after the first year, plus you can purchase additional vacation time.

    Cons

    The first year you don't get much vacation. It's dependent on when you were hired, and then a 3-month probation, and then it's prorated from that point to the end of the year. Ex.: if you're hired in April, you'd only get 2.5 days for the remainder of that year. Also, they phased out the traditional pension for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Base raises on performance, at least in part. Like another reviewer stated, what incentive do I have to do anything but an "Acceptable" job, when I don't get rewarded for it (other than a pat on the back)?
