No strategy, high turnover, hire-fire mentality, no career development
Engineer (Former Employee) – Lombard, IL – January 3, 2017
Family owned business, the family is nice and all, but I do not think the legacy will last. There is no business strategy, no long-term company goals - projects are small and there is no real room to grow. One of the senior leaders in one of the offices leads by threatening people's jobs - in public. He has his favorites and he has others that are not and it shows. He constantly talks about his personal life and it makes people feel very uncomfortable. Not a good characteristic of a leader. The other senior leader in the other office is a good leader with integrity and character, the CEO just does not see it because he is not a suck up like the aforementioned senior leader. They hire people, take people away from competitors and then lay them off. They laid a bunch of people off right before the holidays, they just don't care about their employees. they just care that they are making the money.
Family overall is nice - but not good employers
Hire and fire - don't leave your job if you already have one
