    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Salary offered was in the midrange of controls enginners position. Offer letter removed 6% until review after 6 months. Seems like the company is doing well financially as they have purchased 5 other companies in the last few years and this location is to do all the controls design and expansion.

    Cons

    You will be told that you will get trained and work with "A team". What really happens is you will come to work and get no assistance The controls manager was the quality controls guy a few weeks ago. He has no background in electrical. I resigned after only 3 days as I knew this was a horrible choice. A woman contractor who works there informed me about this board so I could advise others on glassdoor.

    Advice to Management

    be honest and forthcoming to people and be honest on the interviews. I asked about turnover and was told that "Enginners are happy and most stay along time".

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    PROs- Large company that is extremely profitable. 6% bonus at end of year. Ability to negotiate on payscale and number of vacation days. Flex hours available and a nice basketball hoop for playing hoops during lunch breaks.

    Cons

    Cons- The CEO is aware of the problems and has been incompetent in taking corrective action to fix a major problem. Your suggestions are ignored. The last meeting to correct the problems promoted the two individuals who have created the problems. Management has sat back for a decade and allowed two people to become unexpendable (and gave them raises throughtout!) by allowing them to draw the path for this company by being the only people who know how the systems operate and successfully convinced upper management that the problem has been in all of the 20+ engineers that have left and not them. Management is blind to see that the reason why they don’t train others is to secure their jobs!! If one of them were to leave, their controls dept would be devastated so the CEO has taken the path of fear and refuses to address the problem. The latest corrective action by the CEO is to put a quality control person in charge of engineering. Yes, this is true. A non engineer dictating the job responsibilites of engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring young guys out of college who have no reference on how a real company operates. Young people are nieve and don’t realize how pathetic this company is ran since they have nothing to compare it too. This seems the only path available as after interviewing engineers and having a non stop recruitment of enginners and not being able to find one, the only answer is to keep hiring young guys. I would also keep promoting from within and never hire an outside person who has engineered at another company to bring in fresh ideas

    UPDATE: 4-30-12. hired new controls engineer on Monday- never showed up and quit on Wednesday of the same week!!!

    Jan 7, 2014 – CEO

    It seems that our ex-employee was highly frustrated at the company choosing to keep some of our most valuable and highly experienced employees. Sadly he felt that these were cause of his frustration... More
