    Pros

    Easy to get employment, they are always hiring

    Cons

    Pay scale is lacking, and raises are small. Management has a micromanagement problem.

    Advice to Management

    Don't brag about record profits and then give raises that don't at least keep up with cost of living.

    Pros

    Good benefits options, flexible hours for salaried employees, casual environment. There was always a project to work on. The new office has a gym inside for all employees.

    Cons

    The opportunities for advancement were limited to who you knew, and there was a lot of alienation between departments. Projects were usually rushed in the last few weeks of each quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees. Communicate with each other. Communicate earlier rather than later.

    Pros

    Great benefits if you are single.
    Great pay if you are willing to work extra extra hard

    Cons

    Upper Management needs to listen to their employees more often for their opinions and concerns Needs more team building events to bring all the employees together. The place is a wreck.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower levels of the company and be concerned about your employees and how they are doing. Have team building event to gather all departments together.

    Pros

    It pays some of the bills

    Cons

    Working every day, and everybody is always blaming somebody else.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, invest in technology, stop pointing the finger, allow a person to have a life. The cost of insurance should be cheaper than a policy purchased on the internet with the same coverage. Stop charging salary employees that work 65 hours a week, time bank for a bad weather day. Keep up with the latest technology trend like your facility in England. A calm supervisor produces calm employees, and better productivity. It sounds like you have lost a good amount of senior engineers in the last couple of years.
