Company Culture

Terrible caste system, little appreciation shown by managers.

Support from management

Essentially don't believe in management: Do a poor job of setting goals, do no real employee development.

Teamwork

Teamwork at the operational level is good, management is disfunctional.

Internal Communication

Very little feedback on results, very poor dissemination of direction.

Gender Equality

Women, particularly the most talented women, tend to leave.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Too many senior people are allowed to retire-in-place.

Career Development

Essentially no career development for technical staff.

Overall compensation for your work

Great benefits, though recently there have been cuts. Promotions are rare, raises are very small.

Office / Work Environment

A privileged few have good space, the rest are increasingly jammed into less space with increasingly antiquated tools.

Company Image

Our image is better than we deserve.

Inclusive / Diverse

At least management is aware how poorly women and minorities are being treated. Some action would be more helpful.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Managers must be made accountable for schedules and results. Regular efforts at performance management and employee development should be required manager behaviors.

What I like about the company

The work serves a noble purpose, and is intellectually stimulating.

What I dislike about the company

There are no clear plans for how to address key needs. Schedules are not credible. Housing is a mess. The building is just dirty and old.
