Company Culture

Essentially focused on a few top individuals rather than Piper name.

Support from management

Only so much that can be done by senior leadership. Too many resources are spent on sustaining a couple of egos to address real issues.

Career Development

If entering at entry level and can survive a RIF or two, there can be some upward mobility to the well-connected. If already managerial, there is little beyond.

Overall compensation for your work

Well paid by normal considerations but level of work requirements reduces per hour basis considerably.

Work-Life Balance

No end of work that could - and needs to be - done. Largely, you choose how much grief you can sustain from work and try to fit in a little Life around it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Not much that can be done with the constraints imposed by the corporate owner. It is just a situation you survive for a long as you can.

What I like about the company

There are a handful of passionate people who try very hard. The legacy of the company can be meaningful.

What I dislike about the company

There are a lot of people on the bus for the ride.
