    I worked at Intergraph PP&M full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This was not with PPM but rather a side healthcare contract. The experience learned was amazing as you are thrust into every available project and are able to apply hands on with a variety of network experience. Huge pro was the level of professionalism you were able to assume when working with the customer side.

    Cons

    The internal management structure was completely broken. Not only was this a friend's club but also family members were hired and nepotism was rampant. Nothing like being evaluated against the managers son/daughter/2nd cousin. Management is located out of Toledo, OH and makes day to day operations a bit micro-managed as no one is on site to assist when you need the help. Turnover has been higher over the past 12 months as the pay for starting employees is $12-14/hr and expected to perform Project Management behaviors and the quality of work that colleagues on your team are being compensated muuuch higher. Physical training is weak and the fear of being released.fired is daily. Everyone is a contractor and promise a direct hire (which would include benefits) which never happens. Employees have been promised a 3 months hire date and still ongoing multiple years clinging onto the hope this happens. They have managers which are contractors because they will not hire directly, as they reserve the right to terminate your employment with a simple phone call (insert fear tactic referenced above).

    Advice to Management

    Place managers in Madison and separate the leadership from Toledo to Madison, AL. Also, recognize and compensate the employees for the level of work they are accomplishing. Lastly, stop hiring your own family.

    Pros

    Good Coffee, free soda, and a nice ice machine

    Cons

    No room for growth, and do not look within the company for other opportunities, even if you are over qualified. The VPs need to go through an ethics class, and understand they cannot walk around and berate the people the have reporting to them.
    Absolutely NO TRAINING You get a brief orientation from HR, you're handed a laptop, and shown your office.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the days of sitting by the Fax machine waiting for orders went out in the 1980's

    Cons

    Termperamental managers (Yelling, slamming desks, cursing, insulting, humiliating)

    Toxic people (Aggressive and overbearing) This company is what happens when you never fire people.

    Obstacles abound, personnel and mgmt, like a minefield. There's nothing like trudging through toxic sludge (people) to get a day's wage.

    Prison mentality (None are willing to leave without a fight. They fought to get where they are and won't back down. It's a rough crowd.) Blue Falcon Central - Lay-offs are so common that you have a target on your back from the minute that you walk in the door. It's a common saying here, "Don't let anyone chase you out of your job" because they will. The corporation should be congratulated for creating the most inhospitable work environment to strive in.

    Pushy attitudes - Peers are wolves in sheep's clothing. The competition is like Lord of the Flies. The King of the Hill approach to business is dog eat dog, where one's guard is never let down and nothing is to be said unless you're ready for scrutiny from every imaginable angle. Delete your social media account, because that's up for discrimination and it will be used for attack leverage.

    Tiny workspaces (You can pat each other on the back, it's like sharing a table) The new open office works great. 4 conversations happening within 10 feet of you are exactly what one needs when focusing on 10 tasks on their desktop at once. The layout is super when every passer-by gets the steel reinforced concrete bouncing like a trampoline so that your dual monitor arm makes your screens jump like their giggling.

    Noisy work environment (No walls are a constant distraction, headphones are a necessity)

    High work tempo (sprints are always a struggle, to the Postal extent) Your buddy will stab you in the back as soon as you turn around. Your manager will rush you into performing poor quality work because that's what their managers do to them.

    Lazy coworkers (napping and watching Netflix while you pull their weight)

    Your cell phone is out of range. It will not work here.

    When you apply for a position, your skills are marginalized. Unless your previous job title was exactly the same as the Intergraph job title, you're unqualified and none of your work was related to the position that you want. This way, Intergraph HR can offer you the lowest price that you never expected to be insulted with.

    Babe magnet? Not hardly

    Mens latrine has 2 toilets, so that you can feel what it's like to wait for 99 guys to share your throne. Develops plant planning, maintenance, and operations software; Wants 112 men to use 2 toilets, 11 women get 4. Every wing. Every floor.

    This environment is an alternate reality, one where intelligence is measured in stubbornness, laziness, and knowledge of proprietary product releases. Any other measures of expertise would be far off base and contributions would be discredited for their incoherence.

    It's okay when your monitor bounces because of the steel reinforced concrete floors until you sit across from someone that constantly bounces their foot up and down. Then, it's like riding a train or a horse while using your computer everyday.

    It isn't the new Open Office floor plan design layout that has the culture of Cannibalism rampant within Intergraph. This company is well known for lay-offs at any sign of a downward turn of profits. Every on'ry power hungry spy, nay-sayer, and hostile co-worker is out for themselves. If you can be tattled on, forced back where you came from, or sabotaged, then it allows them to be the last one standing. Many of the veterans that are here aren't willing to leave without a fight and they're ready to kick butt and take names every minute of every day they're forced to work alongside of you.

    There should be weekly support group meetings to deal with the drastic pay cut that happens when coming onboard this company.

    HR there adds insult to injury and isn't worth the breath.

    You had better have an interest in translator as a job specialty. Most of the customers for the PPM side are foreign. It is impossible to interpret what is being communicated 95% of the time. My manager was painful to follow. This is a mostly foreign employer. If you're a grammar nanny, this has the potential to become an unending annoyance or infinite pleasure, if you're into translation jobs. Help desk support jobs are tough even when assisting English speaking people. Support here is difficult to impossible.

    When your peers do no work, bad work, or don't come to work, rest assured that there will be no significant repercussions. If you're able to work for management that neglects their duty of removing obstacles, employees that watch Netflix with their feet on their desks, No-Show on a daily basis, or waste time everyday they arrive for duty, then this is an excellent opportunity. Pain, in the form of frustration, is your daily diet. Keep working hard, someone (or a half dozen of them) is actively disengaged and could care less about your efforts. But, they aren't going to get paid if you stop doing yours, and their, job.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up, take responsibility for lack of policy

    Work on the English language some

    Quit blaming others for your failure to lead

    Give up the arrogance because you really perform poorly at your job

    Those that work for you think you don't do anything

    Stand up for the strength of your company which is your developers and engineers

    It's demotivating to hear how competitor software brands are so much more awesome than what you and your team build

    The good lives that you're destroying were worth dignity and respect

    If a contract is in place to hire after a predetermined amount of time, honor the contract.

    When details are withheld and replaced with lies, it devalues your integrity as a person and a manager.

    If the company is only able to retain talent by leading them on, then eventually the web of lies comes undone.

    When the worst of employees is direct-hired and good talent is contracted, it proves that no value is gained in contracting employees.

    Mangers remove obstacles, this is not management. Obstacles are secured, at all costs. Toxic co-workers are dispersed into the workforce, fervently.

    The good managers, a couple there, don't need to change anything at all. Keep up the good fight, it isn't over yet.
