Company Culture

Not much in the way of culture. No extracurriculars, no holiday parties, no effort to try to preserve networks amongst the ranks

Support from management

layoffs came and went, management said "everyone knew this was coming for a long time" but the only people who knew were managers

Teamwork

The "peons" aka people not in any management role are spectacular

Freedom to work independently

about 80% of the time you are micromanaged and the rest of the time you are told you're not doing well enough.

Internal Communication

The top leaders always send out a review of how the top executives are doing but rarely focus on the people doing real work

Gender Equality

mostly white and male

Attitude towards older colleagues

too giving toward the older crowd. Stifles creativity by allowing old, archaic paradigms to persist

Career Development

Not interested in helping its employees develop their careers

Overall compensation for your work

paid 30% less than the rest of the industry

Office / Work Environment

Is okay allowing discomfort of underprivileged employees as long as there isn't a lawsuit

Environmental Friendliness

advertises a "zero harm" policy but has no numbers to back it up

Work-Life Balance

You are required to spend a minimum of 5 hours over 40/week before qualifying for overtime

Company Image

read the wikipedia page of "controversies" about them

Job Security

Getting let go due to contract de-scoping, company doesn't care and isn't interested in keeping many despite year-to-year increases in performance and responsibility

Handicapped Accessibility

unknown

Workplace Safety

our safety officer is off site.

Challenging Work

They mostly just want you to fill out forms and spreadsheets

Inclusive / Diverse

Mostly white and male

Suggestions for improvement

  • give people challenging work. Give them either equal pay or benefits for the area. Give them career development opportunities.

What I like about the company

Civilian aerospace provider

What I dislike about the company

No career development. Pays lower than the rest of the industry. No challenging work. More concerned about paying older workers than it is about improving its products. Doesn't bother to try to help tenured workers whose contract is running out. Lies to your face during review time. 401K contribution is pitiful. Lies about its environmental friendliness. People doing actual work are micromanaged by people who have no idea what work needs to be done. No extracurricular culture. No holiday parties
