    For the JA side, the project work and opportunities are excellent. I've had the opportunity to work with very talented individuals at all levels.


    The merger is slowly bringing down what was once a great company for more than 6 decades. Merging with a small family business took a professional and reputable company in a whole new direction. Since the merger there has been a mass exodus of key leaders, talented engineers and corporate staff members. There is blatant nepotism of incompetent family members or family friends. Those who are not family and in management positions are spineless yes-men, too scared to rock the boat in fear of the repercussions. Compensation and benefits were good but since the merger the trend and message is to cut back, Overall total comp continues to decrease. Communication from the top is scarce and when it happens it is sketchy at best. Most of my peers are actively looking.

    -Good Pay -Had some really good employees, but most have left the company


    -Owners play favorites. Promotions are not based on performance, rather they are based on personalities. -Nepotism is a serious problem, family members are giving the highest jobs, and are not required to perform, or even come to work on a regular basis. This has created a serious moral issue. -The Owner's refuse to acknowledge that there is a serious moral issue, rather they feel that everyone should thank them for the opportunity to work there. -The Owner's are very tough to approach. -I would advise young Professionals coming out of college to look for employment at another company, as they will never receive a promotion unless they threaten to quit the company. -The company does not believe in a work life balance, the work load is unmanageable. Management feels and expresses that the way to correct moral is to give employees more projects to work on, which in turn makes the moral issue far worse. -No career development, or career advancement opportunities.
