Boys club.

Job Security

I was there for six months - relocated, sold my house - then I got percussis (whooping cough) and hurt my back from coughing so much. I was out of work for 4 weeks. Came back with a Drs note and they let me go stating I violated the attendance policy.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Not much. They pay well and make money. I suppose the Healthcare choices could be better but really cannot complain.

What I like about the company

They have promoted me and gives regular salary increases. They provide training for any direction you may go in the comapany and reach out to Veterans especially.

What I dislike about the company

Being so large you can get lost in the shuffle, and they have a constant turnover in management which filters down thru the masses.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Daily meetings with management and suppliers to ensure goals could be meet with more professinism

What I like about the company

well and decided to fix it by bringing in new leadership. The new leadership promised a miracle, and tried to deliver the miracle by overworking everyone without giving reason for the employees to deliver. This worked well for a time, and the employees did deliver, however, the company had no intention on making good with its promises to the employees, just as they routinely lie to both the customer and subcontractors.

What I dislike about the company

The only way management thinks they get anything done is by retaliating against those sick of the misery. In December, the software team I was a part of had six burned out people, and now it is mid February and only two of them remain.

  • The ability to work from home on a regular basis.

What I like about the company

I like my coworkers and team. My director is great and seems to really care about his team and being accommodating. Everyone is helpful and works collaboratively. I've gotten to travel which is cool sometimes. The pay could be better but it is still prett

What I dislike about the company

They should allow people to work remotely on a regular basis. There are some people in management positions that should not be in those positions or let go.

  • Give more credence to local cultures and localized (geographic) management structures.

What I like about the company

The company grew rapidly through merger and acquisitions. It tried to merge multiple engineering communities and traditions into a single culture - that didn't work. It tried to create a tiered down (traditional triangle) executive structure across vast

What I dislike about the company

Fief-building - financial executives ignoring the fact that technological and engineering cultural differences effect program execution and financial performance.
