The worst company I have ever worked for

QA Engineer (Former Employee)
Austin, TX (US)

I worked at Federal Signal

ProsIt was interesting to know what happens when a car goes through a toll booth and what happens to charge the owner of the car for the toll. The web based application had lots of different options to learn.

ConsLong hours and panic fixes lead to bad work life balance. Salary is way below market. There is little to no communication. Things are sprung on you at the last minute. No training available.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating your employees like mushrooms. You need to communicate more and give some incentives. And let them not have to work on the weekends once in a while.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
