    Pros

    Good work life balance, plenty of opportunities for growth and advancement, good training programs. Managers are genuine and looking to promote people within the company. Company culture is very good and very strong.

    Cons

    Very process oriented, too many approvals needed for almost everything. Sometimes it takes a long time to fix something that should be easily fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and develop high potential candidates. The company will need the next round of mid-level managers quickly!

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Southfield, MI

    Pros

    Great quality upper management, project managers, supervisors and engineers.
    Engineers were recognized & compensated for their contributions.
    Great team feel in most departments I encountered.

    Cons

    Benefits started to get more expensive -- went from leading the industry with the best benefits [to attract top employees] to matching the competition.
    Some elitist was divisive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow the, "We are better than..." mentality to overtake a great environment to work in. Nip it in the bud. I know that there is allot of new business coming in, but don't allow it to cause you to loose sight of your greatest asset -- your employees.

    Former Employee - Intern in Ogden, UT

    Pros

    Great environment, managers are great to work with. A lot of room to experiment and do your own thing. Once you have the trust of your manager, you can really get a lot done in a just a summer. I felt like I was a necessary part of the team when I left.

    Cons

    It takes some time to get used to not having a clear objective. It also takes some time to get the trust of managers and engineers.

    Current Employee - Amt in Ogden, UT

    Pros

    This is a technically advanced company and the technoogy is amazing. The company is very into lean manufacturing and a lot of the managers truly believe in the "Don't Judge Don't Blame" view of things. The company believes in education and has a great education benefit program if you are wise enought to take advantage of it. I have been with the company a long time and it has taken good care of me.

    Cons

    There is still some politics just like you find in every company. Some of the managers are egotistical but no more than any other place I have worked. If you want to advance you must have a degree even if you have been with the company for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building current employees which in turn will build a better workplace.

    Pros

    Everyone treats each other with respect, and you can listen to your iPod with one bud in your ear, except when driving a forklift or a Taylor-Dunn. The cafeteria is cheap, healthy and always ready if you forget your lunch.

    Cons

    The work gets monotonous at times, because your job never changes so your doing the same thing over and over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes the language gets offensive and out-of-control when boredom gets extreme. If there was a way to keep the atmosphere respectful and positive, I would recommend it.
