Once great now sliding...
Pros: great team work, gifts at christmas, good health care benefits, possiblity of flex time.
Cons: very poor career advancements; modest salaries, very poor relocation benefits
Once this organisation was simply great. You did not go to work here. It was a second home with your co-workers as family members. Work was fun and long hours did not matter.
Pressures and restructuring by the holding company corporate office has caused a complete change in the environment. From an era when loyalty to the firm, a passion for the product line and technology was the culture of the work force there is now a complete disconnect with a task based culture of "get it done anyhow" approach. There is a significant amount of cronyism and manipulation and questionable ethics. The experienced workforce has largely dissappeared. Attrition in the engineering workforce is significant.
