    Laid back culture, great people, OK compensation, great work-life balance

    Apr 25, 2022 - Aircraft Systems Engineer in Salem, OR
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The culture is very laid back, management is very hands-off and allows engineers to drive their own projects. The team is filled with great people who are very friendly and supportive of each other. Excellent work-life balance with great PTO benefits.

    Cons

    Not much reward for performing highly and the area is expensive. Resources are allocated poorly sometimes due to upper level management politics.

    Pros

    Benefits (we paid less than $400/mo for a family of 4 for great healthcare) Culture - company focuses on hiring A talent. People are smart, driven, and tend to have high curiosity.

    Cons

    - Base pay not competitive vs. similar companies in the area. - Raises 2-3%, no bonuses and promotion potential on larger teams is challenging. - Growing pains continue as processes that worked for 1,000, 3,000, and 5,000 employees struggle to function "efficiently" with 10,000+. Bureaucracy can seep in to keep processes on rails, but make coordinating thousands of team members in one direction difficult.
