Company Culture

If you believe management, the culture is one of inclusion. However, in practice, they really don't care about individual contribution to projects.

Support from management

Project engineers are restricted, both financially, and creatively. It's a siloed, "do as you are told" environment.

Internal Communication

Petty, school-yard backstabbing is the norm.

Job Security

Expect sudden layoffs. This company has a long history of them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire middle and upper management. Most are just clinging to a paycheck. Maybe allow charging to overhead for training.

What I like about the company

Nothing.

What I dislike about the company

The company says they value their employees. ..... They don't.
