    I have been working at EOIR Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Pay is OK. Work is OK. Dress is casual. Beats selling a kidney for money, though, I do have 2 kidneys.

    Cons

    Awful benefits, only 3% 401k match. HR needs a real HR person in charge. This company will get sued big time some day. Back office people think engineers work for them. Raises are a joke. Everyone gets "COLA". No incentive to excel. No training.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a real HR person. Get some real benefits. Break the company into two companies, SEPI and ICI. Let the back office people got to SEPI.

    I have been working at EOIR Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, no micromanagement, good salary

    Cons

    No communication from management - we hear that the company has been sold and some have been officially told while the rest of us haven't. It makes no sense. There is no logic behind the promotion of people to senior positions. Many times they lack people and project management skills. It reeks of favoritism. Meanwhile, staff who do the difficult, day to day work that runs the business, often putting in long hours, have no path forward to career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate equally to all in company. Make sure managers are trained and qualified. Reward the people who actually do the work. Don't run the company based on rumors and spur of the moment ideas.

    Pros

    No micromanagement, business is growing in a sector that is currently shrinking, mostly competent and friendly employees. Very flexible about hours and working from home. Good benefits. Respect for time off and family needs.

    Cons

    Senior management has little to no contact with people under them, many employees report to nobody or are given conflicting info on who they report to, limited to no opportunities for mentorship/advancement, employees are expected to do work well outside the scope of their titles, many people complain of not having enough to do - this company is throwing away money. The management org chart is changed literally every single week...it's crazy. Management doesn't listen to employee concerns about the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a management structure. Stop wasting money and talent. Communicate face to face with employees. Stop making constant management changes.

    I worked at EOIR Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, room to grow DEPENDING on who you work for, able to work from home, okay benefits,can learn about new projects if boss allows you to try new things. Friendly staff, nice holiday parties, 15 days of vacation time, and small yearly bonus if you ask for it.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional Managers who are either never in the office or meet with you once a year. Most people in the office have nothing to do and management is never available to talk and when they are they are usually making fun of other employees. There are a few managers who are okay, but because you are constantly juggling different job responsibilities your managers change monthly, and sometimes you don't even know it! HR is unresponsive and if you complain too much of lack of direction, you will be let go or forced to leave. There is no job security here if you are under specific departments, one day you are in and another you are out.
    There is unfortunately no job direction either under most managers, there are some exceptions of course, but for the most part you won't ever know if you are wasting your time on something or not until the last minute.
    Some people there didn't even have annual reviews but got a small bonus -and there was no review because no one knew who managed them- the managers didn't even know who their managers were!

    Advice to Management

    Take time to come into the office and see who isn't at work (upper management) and take time to talk to the employees. Some people are being put on the wrong projects with totally different skill sets or some need more work, and are willing to learn and try new things. If someone was around to talk to the current employees you would see that you have a talented staff that is just being put in the wrong place or being given the wrong tasks.

    I have been working at EOIR Technologies full-time

    Pros

    No micromanagement; people are encouraged to try new things; salary and benefits are excellent; hours and dress are flexible; many people allowed to work from home.

    Cons

    Management only communicates with staff when they need something, and it's almost always at the 11th hour. Otherwise nobody knows anything about what's going on other than a newsletter that comes out a few times a year. There is little to no advance planning for anything. They are often inappropriate (sexual innuendo, rude and crass comments about other staff). I'm sometimes worry that they open themselves up to a lawsuit in this regard. And the org chart is constantly changing. Very unstable environment in that way. The Virginia office (HQ) refuses to work with the other offices and has their own staff for tasks that should be shared across the company. Senior management seemingly has no control over them and they ignore all requests from other offices. IT might as well not exist for as little help as they offer the other offices. Employees often have to wait over two weeks after their start date to even get a computer.

    Advice to Management

    Come to the office from time to time and communicate with your employees. And not just when you need something. Make the VA office integrate with the other offices. Let your staff know what's expected of them and don't just toss out new tasks to groups of people with no explanation or division of duties. If you're too busy, then delegate your workload instead of giving your staff the short end of the stick with your time and direction.

    Pros

    EOIR is a decent company with approaching 400 employees. Great benefits and (for me) a great commute.

    Cons

    The area I work in needs to continue to diversify in their product offerings (work in progress).

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Flexible hours + Able to work from home
    Heavy use of Mac/Unix machines instead of windows boxes
    Great environment + People

    Cons

    There wasn't a lot of organization or structure in the offices. One or two people are "in charge" and basically everyone else works on their own project. Work comes in waves, so sometimes you're bored out of your mind, and sometimes you're working 60 hours a week or more.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with employees
    Better defined structure
