Issues with racism and sexism with an HR department that would rather turn a blind eye. Stagnant culture, no real drive or willingness to improve (a push by younger employees this past year to improve the culture has essentially flopped).
Support from management
VP temper tantrums are not uncommon ("this needs to be done NOW! I DON'T CARE HOW"). Lower level managers do their best to stem the tide but when you've got beyond impossible schedules and upper management literally breathing down the necks of the rank-and-file, it's hard to say you're being supported.
Lower level managers can be hit or miss, but the good ones are great. Guys will have very little issue working with coworkers (especially if your hobbies involve cars, guns, or hunting), though there have been multiple instances of women having a hard time working (there's a lot of old-school mentality that women shouldn't be engineers...). 3 stars due to me being male but actively uncomfortable at the treatment of my female peers.
Freedom to work independently
When an upper level manager isn't crawling all over you, you've got a surprising amount of design freedom and room to be creative. Don't expect to be allowed to innovate in any large way, but do expect to be responsible for multiple designs from the get go (even if you're a recent college grad!)
Lots of meetings about how the company is doing, but zero information on what the company is doing. Bad results tend to get shuffled under the rug despite most everyone knowing about them, and priorities are communicated and changed like a child throwing a temper tantrum.
In engineering, women aren't treated well. The last time one spoke up, she was essentially fired. At this point in time, there are ~5 women out of the 220 engineers at this location.
Overall compensation for your work
Pay is 15-20% below average for more high-tech sectors (software, electrical systems, etc)
Office / Work Environment
Engineers are often shoved into whatever space is available, such as the temporary offices built in the 90s, or the storage room that was only retrofitted into "office space" two years ago.
Flex hours means you can cover whatever stuff comes up in life, and some managers are extremely understanding.
At one point there may have been pride, but the quality of the new product coming out is shameful and upper management is unwilling to change.
Nobody gets fired unless they badmouth the company in front of a customer or they raise a stink about bad working conditions. Slackers, go nuts.
Ramps and elevators exist, as well as handicap restrooms.
The challenge comes from the insane deadlines and crazy management more than the work itself.
Inclusive / Diverse
I can count on two hands the number of non-white employees in a location with over 300 people. No drive to try and recruit a diverse pool. Heck, people mix up the three black people working here and they look nothing alike.
