    Unprofessional and unethical practices by management. Pay raises only come every few years to offset insurance increases. Everyone held to different standards and expectations.

    I have been working at PIA Automation

    Pros

    There's a lot of room to grow and move laterally if your aren't happy with your current position. The company is in transition almost constantly which makes the job exciting and offers new opportunities everyday. The overall atmosphere with other employees is safe, and relaxed.

    Cons

    There is an growth limit within the company where you may have to fight a lot with management to get things done. A lot of micro managers in upper management. Upper management stresses transparency within the company but doesnt always come through. Upper management has a tendency to play favorites.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at PIA Automation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The offices are pretty clean and the floor is organized.

    Cons

    Very bad management oriented to hire and then fire skilled people as per their personal preferences. There is a huge lack of communication between mechanical engineering, project management , electrical, programmers, purchasing & finally manufacturing. All the departments managers are on their own and by the end of the day all of them will throw their failures on the engineers. The project managers are limiting the communication between customer and the design engineers and project leads.
