    Good benefits, fair and freindly work environment, minimal travel, large fortune 300 company with global reach yet close to home.

    Too competetive, Limited opportunities for career advancement within ones own department, forced to seek outside of department for advancement. Salary structure not comunicated well.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders should be more open with employees and communicate changes effectivly rather than let the "Grape Vine" be their best source of information.

    Pros

    Close to home. Decent benefits. Knowledgable staff. Strong commitment to safety.

    Cons

    Low morale due to poor management and communications. Tons of travel. Low pay accompanied with 16 hour days and no recognition, only push for additional "commitment". Old, outdated systems like Lotus Notes for email. Too. Many engineers, have managed to over complicate the simplest tasks and processes. Poor office politics and BS bonus scheme.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your start up business segments.
