Here’s what current and former employees have to say on Glassdoor:
“Pros: A very professional environment to work in; the past is quite fast and objectives are constantly changing; salary and benefits are good for this area. Cons: Training beyond your essential job duties is almost non-existent unless you are one of the chosen ones; not much room for advancement.” —Current employee
“Pros: Large company with a lot of expertise within; great training opportunities available if budget is approved and allocated. Cons: On the flip side, a large organizational structure can slow down projects and momentum with the layers of approvals that are needed. This can create frustration within and across teams.” —Former employee
“Pros: Great opportunities for advancement; worldwide company giving you a vast arrangement of locations and positions to transfer to. Cons: Poor management (at least in my area); also terrible at properly staffing and training employees on equipment.” —Current employee
“Pros: Interesting products that keep customers at the top of their game; for some divisions, the products were very well received and made a difference. Others were just poor versions of competitive products. Cons: Very poor management at the top, though middle managers were generally good; one always wondered when the beatings would stop, and the answer is “never.” It was sad because so many great folks just gave up–some stayed, many walked away to competitors. But top management constantly wanted to know what you could do for them today and had no problem berating you for the wrong answer.” —Former employee
“Pros: Flexible work hours; some very good engineers; complex problems. Cons: No clear vision; management with waterfall mentality trying to be agile; inefficient and slow moving projects spread over global teams due to cost saving; practically no HR presence.” —Current employee
“Pros: Benefits; schedule; co-workers; tuition assistance; friendly. Cons: Unorganized; management changes constantly; company growth isn’t clear.” —Former employee
