    Pros

    It is good for 1-2 years max, then you start to realize how poor the management is in this place. Vacation time is generous, but you have to use vacation for any sick time.

    Cons

    Benefits are poor, medical provider changes way too often. Management is not transparent, layoffs every year.

    I have been working at IAV Automotive Engineering full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Vacation time is generous. (no sick days though, so don't get sick)

    Cons

    Benefits are OK at best (401k match maxed at 5k, which is super low for the industry). Pay is on the lower end of industry, yearly increases are very low usually do not cover cost of living/ inflation. Management has ZERO accountability, everyone will sit in a meeting and just talk about what could be done when it comes to do it no one will do anything. The entire company is "all talk". When you are working on a project expect the direction from management to change 50 times a day (not customer driven changes).
