QEHS Facilitator (Current Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – November 1, 2015
Co-workers are diverse group of knowledgeable hard workers. The company is committed to employee development. There is currently a tuition reimbursement program. Incredible leadership and direction! Stable company with growing customer base and future focused leadership.
Product Support (Former Employee) – USA – January 5, 2015
There are many locations scattered across the US. Most were aquired companies that still act as if they are separate from the corporation that bought them. This causes a schism among the various business units which makes individual jobs unnecessarily difficult and stressful. This is most evident when working as a remote employee stationed at one business unit while belonging to another business unit based out of another state.
Many business units lack a cohesive direction due to this schism and employees are forced to navigate an array of obstacles thrown in their way by competing business units.
If you are in any kind of a (non-leadership) support role that includes after hours work, then you will effectively earn less money for every uncompensated hour of overtime that you are expected/required to work. This sort of abusive behavior is why unions sprang up to protect workers in other industries. Sadly, there is no IT Union that one can join to regain a healthy work/life balance and be paid fair wages.
Massive uncompensated overtime is what drove me away from this company. Perhaps you'll have a better experience? (Only if you're an hourly employee)
I do not recommend this company.
casual attire most days (business casual when visitors were around - which was often!)
management expects employees to work tons of uncompensated overtime (as if they, too belonged to the leadership team). borderline illegal amount of ot.
Advanced Technology but behind on contingency planning
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Lenexa, KS – April 4, 2013
A typical day at Landis+Gyr was like walking through a maze. You know where you want to go but are met with so many obstacles and red tape that when it is time to go home you are left wondering if the task would ever be complete.
There is so much leading edge technology at Landis+Gyr that it a great company to learn from providing someone is willing to share knowledge.
The management is filled with so many individuals trying to keep their jobs that honesty is a thing of the past.
My advice is that if you get a job with this company, use it as a stepping stone. Do not stay there... You will be sourly disappointed and under educated because so many people keep information so close to the vest in order not to be the one let go.
Engineer (Current Employee) – Alpharetta – August 21, 2012
Landis and Gyr is a not a supportive work place for minority engineers. It is not culturally accepting of minorities with engineering degrees and graduate degrees. Progression within the company is extremely slow. Training/mentoring within the company is does not exist and turnover is extremely high. This is not a company I with which I would not plan a career. I look forward to moving on.
