    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Stable industry
    Company has a good reputation
    The pay is very good
    Starting vacation is very good compared with other companies
    Young energetic workforce combined with seasoned and experience employees

    Cons

    At times extremely busy
    Can be a high stress work environment
    50+ hour work weeks are not uncommon (but salaried employees are paid straight time)

    Advice to Management

    Create a more direct link between bonuses and profits. Continue to encourage exploration of new technologies and processes. Let engineering drive decisions instead of accounting.

    Pros

    Independent and self-directed working environment, some travel involved that provided breaks from routine, great benefits, great group of people to collaborate with.

    Cons

    No recognition of contributions, even if they resulted in saving the company from potential lawsuits, or added to the bottom line, or helped the company remain compliant in servicing government contracts.

    Advice to Management

    The senior management was recently replaced, so the board of directors has addressed the horrible leadership the company suffered through the past five years.
