    Poorly Managed and Lack of Direction

    Feb 2, 2015 - Design Engineer in Vancouver, BC

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on a number of different projects. Good Location, pay, benefits, working hours. Despite other reviews I found HR dept to be responsive and helpful when needed.

    Cons

    Engineering management seemed very inexperienced and unsuited for their position. Constant direction changes, project cancellations, seat-of-the-pants decisions, over-reacting to perceived problems and not reacting to the ones that actually matter. Very little experience in my group which means few mentoring opportunities. Company

    Pros

    - Good coworkers - OK benefits - OK work/life balance

    Cons

    - Arrogant engineering managers with no university degrees, no ability to lead and no clue about the products, market or projects - Promotions are given based on favouritism and who you kiss up to, NOT performance - Terrible HR department - No sense of responsibility and accountability ANYWHERE in the company. Quick to blame everyone else

    Bad management lacking strategy, vision and discipline

    May 12, 2014 - Design Engineer in Vancouver, BC

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There is some flexibility in terms of work life balance. The coworkers are nice for the most part. The pay and perks are good, but not great.

    Cons

    The pompous management is Westport's demise. They are constantly reacting to various crisis instead of planning ahead. Every week they appoint someone new to a VP position with hopes of performing a miracle. They fall flat on their face and burn more investor money in the process. They have most of their eggs in the wrong baskets. Internal communication is nearly nonexistent and everybody is constantly caught by surprise.
