Suggestions for improvement

  • Just for them to listen to suggestions of the teams sometimes because that would make things easier for us

What I like about the company

I feel we all are treated just right. there is little tension in the air. The bosses let us work from home if we can not make it that day. It seems there is a good atmosphere around the whole building and the job gets done on time no matter what location

What I dislike about the company

There are things some of us dissaprove of but not many. We have most of the programs we need but there is some things that we do not have and we are kind of away from the major parts of the city where it is hard to go get hings we need

Company Culture

The company culture is defined by good people

Overall compensation for your work

I believe that I should be making 10-15% more than I am

Handicapped Accessibility

I believe that we have handicap accessible facilities, but I am not handicapped so I have a hard time accurately assessing this.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I can't think of any improvements that I would make at my company that I am able to state in a public forum.

What I like about the company

I enjoy the people that I work with. This company is like a family. We have a good time traveling together on work trips, etc. It is a small company, so over time it becomes tight-knit.

What I dislike about the company

I believe that my company should pay engineers higher salaries.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Cafeteria prices for certain items is a little high and dont seem subsidized. Would have a little bit more for new hire orientation and some product knowledge courses for everyone.

What I like about the company

Company held a "safety stand down" to highlight new PPE and well wishing for everyone to be safer around the holiday season.

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes the overall strategy of the company leaves some employees with questions. There needs to be a little bit better alignment between different sites as to what everyone is working on, what is due, and what the leading goals should be. Company is overall marching in the right direction, but could be marching much faster and succinctly.
