Pros
Cons
  • Cedar Rapids is a little far away from most of my family and is also far away from most of its nearest cultural centers (besides Iowa City) (in 118 reviews)

  • I'd rather be an intern than full time as there doesn't seem to be much of a work/life balance once you're hired full time (in 22 reviews)

    Pros

    The people here are great, and are engaged in what they do, which makes work exciting and fun. Kelly Ortberg has injected some new life and positive direction into the company. Lastly, the company has taken positive steps that have improved employee's work/life balance.

    Cons

    Health benefits have steadily decreased. Pay is OK, but could be more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to employee inputs to make positive changes at the company.

    Pros

    Pay for performance, great benefits, good environment

    Cons

    difficult to advance career and get promotions- some have to apply for a different position or department to advance. Inexperienced people are given leadership roles without proper training or experience and others more qualified are overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    provide better career planning and advancement opportunities. Put more experienced employees in leadership roles.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, and Medical.

    Cons

    IPT leader that came from Cedar Rapids changes your reviews from what your manager gives you. She shows favoritism and promotes her friends. She goes to Las Vegas with her employees and also goes to bars and drinks with her employees. She doesn't know how to draw the line from being a true leader. Low Morale ever since she came to Melbourne.

    Advice to Management

    IPT leaders or Managers should not be allowed to go out drinking and partying with their employees, and getting drunk on the Christmas party to where they carry out one of her buddy friends.

    Pros

    Its great for job security, 40 hours a week and benefits. They offer tuition reimbursement and very much great atmosphere.

    If you are someone who would like to move forward in career and engineer, I completely encourage you to take advantage of the tuition reimbursement and mentoring opportunities to get involved in different networks to grow.
