    I have been working at M+W Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, no micromanagement.No real friction in the group. Each person knows what they are supposed to be doing and they do it. Collegial work atmosphere, no "it's not my job" baloney between engineers and designers.

    Cons

    understaffed, need to upgrade all software to what works best with current drafting software. Not a big fan of Autodesk products but I'll take what I have to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    M+W US has a lot of very good employees. Your peers tend to be hard-working and nice, down to earth people. There is a lot of diversity among the employees lending a lot of different viewpoints to various situations. They have contracts with big names like Global Foundries, SUNY, and Intel. Most departments seem to get along with each other pretty well. Workplace benefits are a little better than average.

    Cons

    Management has a hard time projecting time needed to work on projects. They lack foresight when it comes to financial matters and push forward without consulting those involved in acquisitions and assignments. The Human Resources department tends to have a blind eye to discrimination when they think it won't cause too much of a hassle. Employees are generally treated as numbers and not people, when it matters most.... Salaries, while touted as competitive tend to be low, and bonuses tend to be few and far between. Performance reviews tend to be an attack on the employee and not a positive critique.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to upper management is to keep all your teams in one company, to maintain unity. Management should also take a look at project leads and location based team leads as some of them have no management or engineering backgrounds. Consider being fair to those that are employed on a work visa, as well as those that ask for help from Human Resources. Generally, those employees that offer opinions should not be... flagged as problem employees, as they are just trying to help. Also consider paying your employees a competitive overtime salary as this will encourage employees to be motivated.
