    I have been working at William H. Gordon Associates (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm someone who hops from job to job, because I'm unhappy for some reason or another - I've only been at GORDON for 6 months, and I'd hate to leave! They invest in their employees, very understanding and flexible, my colleagues are the best, and they let me explore my creativity daily.

    Cons

    Here, five words as requested.

    Pros

    Pros of working at Gordon include flexible work schedule, ability to work from home on occasion (depending on job functions), and great comradeirie amongst employees.

    Cons

    Cons of working at Gordon include poor management structure, lack of mid and lower level engineers for production (leading to periods of extreme overtime work), and severe lack of engineering software training.

    Advice to Management

    More support (admin) staff are needed to assist with production. Proper software training is severely lacking. Management structure is confusing with nearly as many staff engineers as there are managers.

  3. "Great company"

    I have been working at William H. Gordon Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family atmosphere with great engineers at the lower levels. Work schedule is flexible.

    Cons

    The upper management is corrupt with office politics which results in promotions and/or raises and opportunities are pre-determined before anyone knows your abilities. If you're on the right side of that equation you'll like your job, if you are not within that pre-determined group you will not like the position and soon be looking for other employment due to lack of growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and promote based on merit instead of personal relationship.


  5. "a wonderful learning environment"
