Job security

Constantly downsizing and offshoring to India.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Practice what you preach. Ethics start at the top and trickle down. Discontinue your outdated management styles. Listen to your people! Care about your people by showing it not just through lip service. Replace managers that have been there for 35+ years. They aren't effective anymore and are detrimental to future progress.

What I like about the company

Location, the work, the benefits, and the non-management employees.

  • Employee

Company culture

I found the company culture to be very conducive to learning

Teamwork

The teamwork is not ideal and the work is not distributed evenly.

Level of Autonomy

Yes. Projects are completed by team, where different parts of the work is completed independently.

Communication

Yes. There are status meeting where results discussed and information is gathered.

Work-Life Balance

The work life balance is very good. You might have to put in some extra hours, from time to time, to complete an assignment on time.
