    I worked at Weir Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of any unless you consider the hard working guys and gals actually doing the work.

    Cons

    Egos at the top that will stop at nothing

    Advice to Management

    Where do I start? Things were good in the beginning until the new regime came into play. HR is a joke from the management up through division. Backstabbing is a daily occurrence. Watch your back should be the motto. The leadership there does everything they can to strip employees of their dignity while lining their pockets and egos. It is such a shame that when prior management went away, so did the solid culture and business integrity that once was. Quit stepping on the people that made that business what it was.

    Pros

    The overall group is helpful and work well together. My lead is hepful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Out of the 4 major factors for accepting this job, only 1 has held true. This is mostky die to the project i was hired in for being redirected, but my schedules changed 4 times in the last 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Nees to have a defined plan for the cloud project beyond the next 6 months. Employees need to know jobs are sound.
