Negative Outlook

I worked at FORMS + SURFACES full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There are a few unique individuals here that are some of the best people I've known and worked with.
This company used to be run by great people and had great values.

Cons

Gross mis-management with no accountability for anyone below a management position.
American engineers are slowly being kicked out in favor of a team in India, those remaining are expected to finish the same workload. There are no opportunities for advancement or improvement. Benefits here are just above the bottom of the barrel, however it seems management receives much better hidden benefits and certainly more paid time off than the grunts. Management here is entrenched and disinterested in existing employees. Some groups have such high turnover that you can't remember the new team members names.

The management here has a long history of promising you one thing and breaking it months later. Any offers from them are no better than flat out lies.

Advice to Management

Why bother with advice, any interest or compassion from the top is completely fake.
It seems the entire goal is to maximize profits while crushing any remaining hope in the existing employee base. Possibly a long term goal of shuttering the entire company.

    Pros

    None, none, none, zero, zilch

    Cons

    Decisions are very sporadic and not backed-up. You are expected to do a ridiculous amount of work with no rewards or bonuses. The company practices are outdated, wasting a large amount of money, time and resources. Also, there is loud banging from factory equipment, which occurs daily.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management!


  2. "Fast growing and friendly organization!"
