Approves of CEO

Pros

Opportunity for technical staff to be challenged professionally.

Cons

Understaffed and the company expects everyone to do whatever it takes to get the job done - hero mentality. The job comes with 60+ hours as the norm - impacts personal life significantly.

Advice to Management

Work to acheive a better work/life balance. Communication from Sr. Mgt. is minimal - talk to us!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great engineers to work with. Dirt cheap house at Reno

    Cons

    Incompetent managers ruined everything. If you see something is wrong and make sure not be vocal about it, unless you want to be the next one to go. One of the top performers was forced out by doing exactly this in our group. Plus more and more projects go to Beijing.

    Advice to Management

    Engineers are the blood of this company. Do something before it is too late

    Pros

    for the most part if you can get in to upper management you're pay is great and least likely to get laid off

    Cons

    poor promotional practices. They will hire from the outside and give higher pay than promote from within and give the same pay rate as someone from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Manage with compasion of your staff so that it lowers job burn out and turn over. Treat your staff like they mean something. Stop the mass hiring knowing that layoffs will soon follow once the goal has been met. To many people were affected by this practice.
