No opportunity for promotion
SR SYSTEMS ENGINEER (Current Employee) – Dearborn, MI – October 27, 2015
I can't say much that that is good. As a senior mainframe person, I have not been afforded the same benefits as my co-workers that have been here for twenty years. The only thing you hear about with promotions is mid-managers or upper-managers being promoted to the next level. This is definitely a good-old boys network. Managers here don't act like managers; they tend to be frustrated technicians who make lousy supervisors or managers. Part of it is that they don't provide any formal training for managers. They have some self-study courses. Managers here are more concerned about their own interests then their people. Then if you throw in the physical facilities, it's a nasty place to work. They haven't put any money into some of their building for 25 years. Dirt everywhere, air quality is terrible, and the bathrooms are nasty.
Decent on the work/life balance
Lots of bureaucracy, lousy management, no opportunity for promotion
