    Pros

    Benefits are great. Health benefits, PTO and 401K are good. Some of the people are great. It's a place to work.

    Cons

    Human resources personnel are rude.
    There are too many managers and no set structure.
    They keep hiring management level people and no one to help in the areas that are really busy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Stop promoting yourselves - someone here can go from being an entry level engineer to a senior engineer within a year and no measurable accomplishments.. We get how the bonus system works. You can only give higher ratings and bonuses to a few employees per year so that your bonuses are plump every year. It is not based on actual merit. When someone does something wrong, talk to them instead of finding an indirect approach and preventing it from happening again. Hire a new HR person - someone who works for the employees and isn't such an arrogant, overbearing beast. Management only adds a new position when they break a sweat for the first time. They then add an assistant position so they have to do less work. The people doing the real work continue to struggle with highly demanding schedules and stressful days.
