Pros

Money...some of the best in Indiana
Some of my co-workers have become my closest friends
Really good work experience

Cons

Will work you to the bone and take complete advantage of any individual's motivation to succeed and progress.
 Have gone from an entry-level position to leading a team of six people (in 2 years) without even changing salary grades or receiving compensation.
Expect you to be in your seat all day, every day or else the rumors will start flying that you're "not working."
Expect you to work, work, work and make you feel as though it is such an inconvenience if you need to take personal time or medical leave.
People hoard information because they think sharing means they might lose power over others.
The current office spaces are absolutely disgusting with cockroaches and mice crawling all over the place.
Never a 'thank you' for a job well done, can only point out when something goes wrong. Atmosphere is way to negative and stressful.
Culture is not suitable for anyone who believes in work-life balance.
If you're not an engineer, you have no future here.

Advice to Management

Take some time out and actually listen to the people doing the work--you have no idea what is going on at the lowest levels of your organizations.
Stop selling services to our customers without a proper infrastructure to support in place.
If you don't start paying attention to the non-engineer talent in-house, you're not going to bring in new talent or retain good talent.
Forced distribution has been implemented--how about actually getting rid of the pieces of junk that are in the bottom 15% bringing down the organization? I thought that was the point in finding out who the worst players were??

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    DISCLAIMER; I am a contractor assigned to RR.

    Matrix organization allows the company to dynamically relocate employees where needed so speedbumps (program cancellations for example) don't immediately lead to layoffs.

    Good Pay. Generally helpful and friendly employees.

    Cons

    Hot Desking?!? Really?!? Lockers? No personal items on desks???

    The office enviroment is the worst I've ever persnally endured and is now going to a smaller location where they planned for 1.2 employees per desk!

    No consistency in first-level management. I've had four in two years Best Ever -> Worst ever -> Great -> and now so-so. The second one actually got me fired but was rehired after six-weeks off.

    Health benefits are terrible. $7000 out of pocket threshhold. Company funds an HSA for $1000. The balance is on the employee.

    Nearly impossible to hire on direct. 49 applications, 4 interviews, nothing. One interview with FedEx: hired!

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to reduce the permatemp workforce and work harder to retain valued talent.

    Pros

    Good benefits and brand name

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy and performance and lack of merit based pay.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more open minded and value talent based on the aptitude and attitude rather than the number of years experience.
