Not for a family man
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MI and Melville, NYOctober 20, 2014
Engineering Services. Poor Supervisory staff, and extremely poor Director who never addresses any legitimate concerns of his employees. Very poor team moral in respect to the supervisor and director, as complaints were rampant among the group. Director expects employees to finish projects early and start new ones right away, in turn making more money for the company, and never reward the employees.

Very high turnover rate from engineers quitting. Due to high expectation of long hours at minimum of 60-70 hrs a week (80 hrs and you're a star) with very little salary (no overtime and not even a competitive pay scale). Expected to work nights and weekends as some engineers can be found there on a Saturday/Sunday night at 2 am. Expected to work from home at 1 am any given day of the week. Basically stay connected to the office 24/7 including holidays. Expected to respond to emails anytime of they day as well and is frowned upon for late responses over weekends or nights.

The majority of engineers are from India who are here on work visas (myself included). They are more than willing or have no choice to work in the 70+ hours a week for little pay just to have the opportunity to stay within USA. Most engineers don't last here 2-3 years, and most move on as soon as they can.
Pros
Coffee machines, fellow Indian colleagues, rollover vacation up to 4 weeks/yr to visit India, Can work in India office to extend vacation, Good Benefits Package
Cons
no paternity leave for men must use sick time, 401k is NO match

Detailed work criteria and objectives were set prior to project induction. Project management allowed for constant feedback with open table discussions as well as open door policies. Company was on the forefront of technological innovation in manufacturing process which was the cradle of a productive and enjoyable experience.
Pros
Free Coffee, Open door policy, detailed project guidelines
Cons
Limited room for long term growth

Senior Graphic Specialist (Former Employee) –  Melville, NYMay 5, 2013
This was a wonderful company to work for, as well as having employees divers experts in there fields. I was able to work with Engineers from all specialties. I was able to travel, and interact with people from all of the divisions. The hardest part of the job was the time differences of the art departments in the U.S. and England.
Pros
Creative freedom, collaboration, co-workers, international company, multicultural environment
Cons
Hectic Pace
