    Current Employee - Engineer I in Gilbert, AZ
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Always plenty to do. Lots of hands on opportunity. Flexible hours. Discount on Dish network. Tuition assistance for university studies.

    Cons

    Micro-(mis)management by VP and director level. Lack of proper test equipment. Bogus reward system (monthly parking space or a pair of movie tickets) if you get recognized at all. Poor and costly healthcare benefits. Technical positions pay based on cost of living in Cheyenne, Wy. No training available except contracted out e-learning for office oriented tasks. Company can't get quality help because they won't give a decent wage and can't get any help because they still try to be picky.

    Advice to Management

    Let the managers be accountable for their departments. Stop making meetings mandatory for those that are not affected by the purpose of the meeting. Enable managers to make decisions. Stop crippling productivity with paperwork.
