Company Culture

They expect you to work alot of overtime to meet poorly managed project and discount the importance to important day to day family activities. If you don't have a life out of work then they might work for you.

Support from management

They perform work using the schedule but never finish depend activities necessary to start dependent activities. Always a Chinese Dire Drill, with high stress, too much overtime, and an error prone environment. Weak leadership is responsible for slipping engineering activities due to inexperience.

Teamwork

Sorry. Most employees are new or have light experience. Teamwork here requires babysitting by senior task members.

Internal Communication

Poor communication with employees. Lots of meeting to discuss employees and has a hidden agenda only available to management. 2 standards.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They have been pretty busy getting rid on old employees. Once you get above mid point in your pay grade they may lay you off for a less experience employee they can bill out to the client and make more money.

Career Development

Forget about career development unless you can be self taught.

Office / Work Environment

They use old computers and workstations that look like they came from a third world country.

Workplace Safety

Scary ever trip to the field. Don't have the experience and awareness to be in the field. We I see and S&L employee in the plant, I cringe thinking about the trouble they could get into.

Challenging Work

Work is like watching paint dry. Work there too long, Boone will want your experience for there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop over billing Southern Company and TVA for services not rendered. Get rid of the young go get ERs and hire some real experience.

What I like about the company

Nothing. They had young inexperienced leadership in most departments causing problems on many fronts.

What I dislike about the company

They will work older employees without proper insurance for avoid the expense.

Support from management

They went through 3 managers in 4 years, settled for a yes man based on their income rather than leadership ability.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't settle for a yes man. Leadership is crucial in an office setting. Integrity and dignity still matters and should be desired by the company.

What I like about the company

The work was mentally challenging.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership amongst management was nonexistent.
