Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Hayward, CA
Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Hayward, CA
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Stable company, gives big company experience on resume

Cons

Cost is number 1, followed by cost. Quality a distant third.
Technology and physical plant well behind industry standards.
Employees treated like children.

Advice to Management

Specifically for the Hayward plant - the recent change in plant leadership can't hurt, but probably won't help. If you can't seem to avoid a 'breakroom coffee stock-out' that lasts two weeks, how can you expect anyone to have confidence in your ability to handle the big issues?

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Solid talent across organization; good benefits

    Cons

    The deep cost controls do not allow for much personal growth developmentally or financially. Though the company is doing well, headcounts are not refilled. Very tense organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. Make decisions that are not based upon personal opinion but facts.
