Located in Chandler. Had to move closer to shorten commute.

Good ideas not even considered and the CEO is running the company into the ground, in the US.
Director, Business Development (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAAugust 30, 2018
Was with the company about 14 months, won the largest project in the pharma industry in the history of the company in the US, Received a sizeable bonus, sizeable increase in salary and let go shortly after with no notice. Was let go at 10:00am on a Friday, last paid hour 5:00pm same day. No severance, not even 2 weeks, only a 2 week payout for signing the "promise not to litigate".


The customers in the US are learning very quickly the high turnover of top performers and they are losing credibility in the industry globally.
Pros
good medical benefits
Cons
shoot from the hip, terrible executive managment

Well paid but strange work culture
Architectural Designer/Drafter (Former Employee) –  Rio Rancho, NMJuly 16, 2018
If there place that personified the phrase "firing our way to excellence" this would be the company. I saw numerous people get laid off/terminated with little or no due cause and no warning whatsoever. This unsporting attitude is unfortunately a clear proclivity of this organization. Managers were short and aggressive at time, in spite of best efforts put forth. I would not recommend working here.

this company has changed management in the past 5 years
Office Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 19, 2018
I worked as an Office Administrator for M +W (Zander) U.S., Inc. for 12 years and saw a dramatic change; from an expanding, interesting company in downtown SF to first moving and then closing the west coast office. This was due to change in ownership and upper management decisions.
Pros
excellent co-workers
Cons
bad corporate management
