Working in this Company, I don't have much to say but 'delighted'.
Principal Electrical Design Engineer (Former Employee), Pasadena, CAMay 4, 2013
Pros: proximity of the project
Cons: relocation, which means constant travelling.
Working at this company is worthwhile, meaning productive, at the same time, the location is significantly close to family, community, and all commercial necessities. What made this Company fun to work is the diversity of the workplace where different cultures merge and cultivate each other's interests. Management did a good job to promote friendship – more... and goodwill among the different culture. The hardest part of the work is when the Project we were working on was relocated to Kentucky and that all employees are expected to travel by plane and/or cars. – less

Subpar management that fosters hostile work environment
Engineer 1 (Former Employee), San Diego, CAApril 25, 2013
Pros: fairly competitive pay and benefits
Cons: hostile work environment
San Diego PTG management fosters a very hostile work environment by encouraging employees to bully and gossip about one another. PTG San Diego management operates to the complete contrary of the company's "Core Values".

PTG San Diego has evolved into a satellite location with their only purpose being to support projects won by other offices. On various – more... occasions corporate managers stated that closure of the San Diego office has been seriously considered multiple times throughout the time that i was there. – less
