Company reviews
"Can't retain staff"
Former EmployeeDeveloper
Didn't get the tools to do my job, still expected to produce work. Managers don't listen, don't care. If your face fits your ok, if not you are fighting a losing battle. A toxic place to work, with backstabbing colleagues, and managers covering their backs. You constantly have to look over your shoulder. My mental health suffered badly. All I wanted was tools to do my job. Wasn't asking for much. The open door policy is a lie. No one wants to listen.

"Electrical Engineer "
Current EmployeeElectrical Engineer
Pretty good benefits and culture. A lot of people complain about working for a big company but I believe that is a benefit. There are a lot more programs available at a bigger company. I left because the work was tending more towards systems engineering and less electrical engineering.

"Dependbable employer"
Former EmployeeIT Security Specialist
The company is rather dependable for how they generally treat their staff. There is nothing outstanding about the work environment. Overall was comfortable and liked the people.

"Terrible. "
Former EmployeeSpecialist
I hated my life when working for this company. They have absolutely no flexibility or desire to promote from within if your an hourly employee. There is a total double standard between hourly and salary employees due to the unions. It was slowly killing my soul.
