    Pros

    Good benefits, pay ok, pay for boots

    Management turnover rate high, company says they care about employees , but realty they only care about their product, only time they see employees when they make a mistake, never awarded for a job well done, safety is high on list but only for insurance reasons

    Advice to Management

    Management you never see always in meetings , never there to advise or direct

    Good engineers do not always make good managers. Management should be working on developing talent from within more.

    Pros

    Free Fast Food Friday For Fatty

    Cons

    No support from leads, managers in R&D are completely incompetent bull crappers of the highest order. Tossing people under the bus is their motto. I wouldn't buy any of our products or trust the people who install them.

    Advice to Management

    Nepotism only works when you have a great product, great companies run from top to bottom and bottom to top. Try making throw pillows at least you won't kill your employees.
