I have been working at REI Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

REI is a great place for people with entry/mid level experience where you get to learn a lot about the standard industry business practices. Working on variety of projects allow you to become flexible and diverse.

Cons

Majority of the Project Managers/Portfolio Managers are horrible to work with. Most don't have respect for their team members and treat them as their "own" employees. A lot of internal politics is in place. Also, the PTO is very low with no sick leave or paid FMLA leave. Work hours are long, mostly 40+ hours every week. Managers take their team members for granted and think they are available to work late nights and on weekends. The owners also have a very Indian mind set for operating a company in the US.

Advice to Management

Train yourself and your managers better to treat their team members with respect and dignity. Revise your benefit package. If your attitude towards long working hours don't change, you will loose a lot of good workers.

    I worked at REI Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a good reputation with its customers and they are generally very satisfied. The senior management cares about the company and tries to promote healthy work environment. The corporate culture is good.

    Cons

    There are few bad managers who play politics and try to be dominant. They don't know how to talk to people and goes out of their way to prove their dominance. Why would anyone want to work with such people.

    Advice to Management

    Employees can't complain about their managers. Find and Fire these managers/resource managers.
    They can't be trained.
