    I have been working at Structural Integrity Associates full-time

    Pros

    SI has a culture where employees care about each other and go the extra mile. There is a high standard for excellence and service. At the same time we like to have fun. The changes in leadership over the last few years have made the company even stronger. SI continues to attract strong talent. I am excited about the future and look forward to the future.

    Cons

    Given the geographical distribution of offices it can be tough to communicate with employees and management. The additions of new technology have made this challenge easier recently.

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion management is transparent in their communications. I like how they send out Total Compensation Statements each year. I appreciate the time they put into developing or enhancing programs. They should continue doing these things plus educating employees on how the business operates.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Strong family culture not found with many larger organizations. For the most part, the upper management really seem to care about your future and growth.

    Cons

    Management can be a bit scattershot at times. Sometimes lacks a clear direction or someone willing to take a stand on a decision that would be beneficial to the company in the long run. Need someone to make hard decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, but not to the detriment of the company. Direction and guidance must come from on high, and this was lacking in several cases.

    I have been working at Structural Integrity Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great people to work with, great support from team mate, some technical leader in industry. Great place if you do not care about

    Cons

    poor compensation, career development very difficult, lot of politics in order to be promoted

    Advice to Management

    compensate people, stop favoritism. Wonder why all the young Phds left?

    I have been working at Structural Integrity Associates full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team of people, very knowledgeable, and always available to help. Great place to learn. People are here to support you if you need help.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average, work/life balance is poor, you will work week ends, holidays and a lot of hours for little reward: a lot of compliment for sure but that does not pay bills. Opportunity to evolve is really limited. this is due to the industry more than the company.

    Advice to Management

    try to keep the employee you have. The people you train are a great value to the company but worse less if they leave. You are losing all the talented and ambitious individuals and left over with the people who do not really care and just come to work to get the pay check.

    I have been working at Structural Integrity Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Structure
    Stability
    Friendly coworkers
    Meetings often and they do look to help you improve as a person/employee
    The ERP they use is top notch
    Nice building with a good location for commuting to and from cheaper living areas like Morgan Hill/Gilroy
    Some 'old timers' long for the good ol' days, but as a newer employee I think the place is pretty rad
    Benefits are cheaper with SI than my spouses union job and they survey employees to see what they'd like added

    Cons

    Easy to step on toes if you are used to more of a laid by 'Silicon Valley' company
    Work hours are pretty strict and accounted for

    Advice to Management

    None at the moment

    I have been working at Structural Integrity Associates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - The senior engineers are tops in their field
    - Everyone is friendly and supportive
    - Work load and hours are reasonable
    - The company is stable and successful

    Cons

    - Quality of management is inconsistent. They are OK managing projects but are often clueless in understanding people's feelings and motivations.
    - Benefits are average
    - Bonuses and employee stock plans have been significantly cut in recent years. Salaries are OK. - Raises are given mostly to younger engineers; older engineers don't get much
    - A lot of recent turnover among younger engineers - perception is that if you are not identified as a star, advancement is slow

    Advice to Management

    Listen to feedback from your employees, especially those that choose to leave.

    Pros

    Benefits are OK and the people here are good to work with for the most part. Good amount of freedom.

    Cons

    Management seems very clueless at times. Out of touch with the engineers. Salaries are very low. From the outside it seems like a good company to work for, but once you gain experience here, you realize the big issues. The culture is trying to be more like a larger company, but this is a small company, and the barriers that get put up in front of you get frustrating. In addition, promotions are very selective. Some say it is selection by ethnicity/race first, work performance second.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what to say since they don't listen. They act like they try to listen but ignore you in the end unless you push them hard. In that case you become singled out as a trouble maker.
