Company confuses little perks with a good atmosphere. Frustration with process problems has caused large employee turnover.
Support from management
Decisions are frequently arbitrary, and change without warning.
For the most part people work well together. Really good professional group.
Freedom to work independently
It is difficult to complete tasks with constantly shifting priorities.
Communications are good in general.
I haven't seen any type of discrimination.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Predominantly young demographic.
Very little opportunity for advancement. Very little training, and adoption of new tools.
Overall compensation for your work
No complaints good benefits especially health insurance.
Office / Work Environment
New building in a nice area.
Mandatory overtime is sometimes imposed, it is often uncompensated in time or money for exempt employees. Not a problem normally except it can be excessive at times, and generally caused by poor or no planning.
Great product with high visibility in the marine industry. Some negative customer feedback regarding quality, delivery, and support. Overall poor morale.
Great product a lot of "firsts", but design, build, test, rework cycle is frustrating.
Suggestions for improvement
- Finish projects and perform testing prior to production release.
What I like about the company

What I dislike about the company
Constantly shifting priorities, lack of direction, poor planning
