    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AVX (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company manufactures very innovative products

    Cons

    Operates as if they are in the 1960's. Most of the senior staff is over 60 with no succession plan in place. Salaries are very low. They can bring the morale of the most optimist person to zero. Perhaps new CEO will make changes to keep company afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up!! It's a new day, new generation. Let your employees think.
