    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The compensation is above average.

    Cons

    Long hours. Poor living accommodations. Unethical Leadership. lack of transparency into process and decisions to the Project. Don't expect assistance or documented process or procedures. These things are intentionally not documented to allow for management decisions on matters. In other words, if you are not "liked" don't expect much, actually expect the opposite of much. Work processes are very backwards, creating a meltdown in your brain synapsis, making this the challenge

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring. You need to keep hiring becasue we keep leaving. This is how you can keep profit margin and report back to corporate that 'all is well"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    My supervisors were great, my successful problem solving was attributed to me with no subterfuge. Great training was provided while I worked there, broad and practical.

    Cons

    Very large company, so there were many inefficiencies that I had to put up with. While this was frustrating, I did learn later that there was a bigger picture that I was unaware of at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Although it would be challenging, I believe a more earnest attempt at worker consultation to improve business processes would be beneficial.
