I have heard from those who worked at RTI, that in years past it was a good company to work for. Not so today... there is a lack of integrity, a lack of honesty, breaches in confidentiality by managers and by the company. Managers and company talk out of both sides of their mouths... and they ask/tell you to falsify documentation despite the fact that you are attesting to the accuracy on your time card, "I certify that this report is true and accurately reflects time and expenses actually worked or incurred." They lie about the statistics despite the fact that you have the records electronically in front of you. Expectations are inconsistent, and often unachievable... you must work 20-25 hours per week, but you are not given 20-25 hours to do. I accepted this position with the understanding that the cases would be assigned by quarter, that there would be 20-25 hours per week until the third quarter and that there would be some night time work and some weekend work. I have NEVER been given 20-25 worth of work. When I reminded the supervisor of this conversation, I was told we would be given 20-25 hours per week IF there was work. Blatant lie. I've completed the majority of my work within 3 days of the first quarter and I am a higher than average performer, with lower than average costs. They are ALWAYS hiring (with a 500 referral bonus) because the environment is so unhealthy that normal people do not stay. The ones that do stay have very low self esteem and based on my observations, behave similar to those people in domestic abuse situations that are afraid to leave. Same goes here except it is corporate abuse. If you are desperate enough to take a job with RTI, document everything. Check your state laws regarding recording phone conversations because it is during these conversations that the lying begins, and there is no one, except for yourself who can/will defend you if you were simply doing what the boss told you that you MUST do.
Senior management - fire all of the brownnosers. They are doing nothing to grow the department, and providing smokescreen reports at best.
I started at RTI as a contractor with my own company KV Engineering, LLC. they didn't want to lose me so they hired me full time in 2017. I have been designing EMI boards and packaging with injection molded and sheet metal enclosures. It's too bad with the corona-19 they don't think they will make it. I was the only Mechanical Engineer for the whole company since 2015.
