Good engineers, very poor management
MTS (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – March 5, 2018
The engineers working here are good, smart, and productive. The first level managers are pretty decent. However, the upper management has recently started a very dishonest process of laying people off without a severance package by blatantly misusing the "Performance Improvement Plan" process. I know of three good engineers who were let go due to bogus PIPs. In all three cases, there was no prior indication or warning of poor performance - it came out of the blue, after a good performance review. The PIP goals were not realistic, and even when they were met, management came up with excuses to justify termination. The blatant dishonesty used here tarnishes what used to be a decent company.
