Pros: a few tireless engineers
Cons: management, attitude towards employees, benefits
"We made $26M on this project. But our investors will be happy if we make $28M. So, we are letting go of 15 Engineers. None of this has to do with your performance. We take good care of our investors, you see".

Typical Big Business
Payroll Clerk/Finance Support (Former Employee), Lawrence, MAJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: co-workers were amazing people
Cons: most work is now overseas it is becoming a cold company to work for.
7 years ago when I first started there it was a great company to work for big business with the small business feel. Supervisors and Managers were open and helpful. Then the market sunk things changed and it has gone down hill from there.

Many many many people lost their jobs due to product changing to outside countries. This may hurt me in my search – more... but it became a cold place to work and even though being laid off has been the hardest thing ever I believe I am better off having been let go.

I am a person that is hard working and a real people person watching good people loss jobs they have been at for over 20 years was very difficult to see happening. – less

Not a Healthy work environment, poor management from the top down.
Technician 5 (Former Employee), Folsom, CaNovember 20, 2013
Pros: great co-workers who cared for each other
Cons: management management management
A work day consisted of being told what to do, how to do it, and when it was needed done by managers who had no idea of the time and materials or technical barriers involved. Unrealistic expectations. When quotas weren't met, yelling would insue, lots of back stabbing and sometimes, SEVEAR verbal abuse.
Management never cared for any kind of work life – more... balance forcing people to work over MAJOR holidays and canceling vactions at a moments notice for production concerns.
Never any pay raises or merit increases, deminishing health benefits, last minute demands for overtime irregardless of personal commitments under threat of being fired.
Management of the facility I worked in from the TOP on DOWN were awful. They couldn't get materials on time, couldn't nail down specs, couldn't design or find suppliers who got parts that worked to our needs. – less

Good Folks, Slightly Disorganised
Engineer (Former Employee), Irvine, CADecember 26, 2012
Pros: flexible hours; results more imporant than methods
Cons: confused, inconsistent managment
The corporate culture was friendly and considerate, but their management was a little confused with instances of overlapping jurisdiction and consequent duplication of effort. Still, there was plenty of room for innovation and individual initiative.

Overall, a nice company to work for, one which treats employees and contractors alike with respect.
