Okay
Area Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Aiken, SCJune 6, 2017
Started out okay but the French management was extremely difficult to work for. Being promoted too quickly also made enemies. It was hard to succeed as you were unable to make your own decisions.

Relationships more important than skills, experience, or knowledge
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMay 3, 2017
leadership jobs awarded on friendships, regardless if the person is actually qualified or experienced for the job. This is a major reason the business is in such trouble in the US.

deadline orientated
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVDecember 26, 2016
fast paced, and production orientated. Great salary, relaxed environment, just very very unstable. The best part for me at this job was the day to day problem solving. We had contracts and deadlines that must be met daily and failure was really not an option. the responsibility was on me to keep the machining department running without a shut down for two shifts.
Pros
great co-workers, paid lunches
Cons
sub standard equiptment and material
