    Pros

    Excellent Management. Listen to your ideas. HR was helpful and they would promote their employees.

    Cons

    none that I can remember

    Advice to Management

    Back in 2012 Management knew how to be leaders more than managers. I hope it remains the same.

    I have been working at GL Noble Denton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot of good and smart people. Software is however an ugly step-child. The main business is not software. I did learn a lot though. I hope things get better.

    Cons

    Since I came aboard, things have been in a state of flux (multiple M&A's). Not sure what the future holds.

    I have been working at GL Noble Denton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the team members are actually good to work with if they're not upper management. Break rooms, celebrate birthdays

    Cons

    Turnover is high due to upper management. If you aren't brown nosing, you'll go no where. Low Pay unless you're upper Mgmt. Will not let you take time off for emergencies, you're still expected to be there. Micromanaging, being 2 mins late will get you written up even if you live far away.

    Advice to Management

    Develop the talent around you.

    I have been working at GL Noble Denton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great first impressions but It is only a paycheck.

    Cons

    1. Within the past 2 months they have let go over 20 people.
    2. Issues with HR and employees are not protected.
    3. Internal threats are allowed with employees and if the employees bring it to their supervisor's attention they are terminated.
    4. Management takes advantage of "Employment At Will" and will terminate for any reason.
    5. Employees are treated under value and not appreciated. Not treated with respect.
    6. Employees salary are not competitive in the market.
    7. The organization business model does not fill in the gaps from the past mergers.
    8. There is lack of follow-up with customers.
    9. Lack of commuication
    10. Lack of experience engineers at the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be ethical and professional. They need to come together and fill in the gaps within the organization. They need to learn to communicate with employees and stand behind the employees when needed. They need to learn how to manage and lead.
