    I have been working at Swift Engineering full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get to work on a good range of projects. People within a department get along very well.

    Cons

    Work can get very busy and stressful when a big project comes along and dull when there isn't one. Different sides of the company do not work together very often if at all.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage communication and cooperation between departments. Don't hinder raises because projects are gone.

    Pros

    Fun group of people to work with, casual workplace. Most project managers are great, reasonable and will take the time to explain the project and scope. Location is very close to a train station.

    Cons

    No formal training given for software or engineering concepts. Salary on the low end.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for training opportunities for your staff. If you can cross-train your staff with different skills it will allow for a less stressful environment.
