A means to an end, but not very satisfying if looking for a career with growth opportunities

Corporate (Current Employee)
Angleton, TX

I have been working at Benchmark Electronics full-time for more than 8 years

ProsSome good people to work with, good financially stable company

ConsNo company driven employee development opportunities, critical areas such as corporate supply chain and corporate IT staff are severely understaffed, lack of leadership and vision at executive levels, employees have responsibility with no authority

Advice to Senior ManagementUse the S.M.A.R.T. method for goal setting, too many goals are not Specific or Measurable. Invest more headcount in critical areas such as corporate IT and supply chain to turn them into competitive advantages instead of "necessary evils".

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place to gain valuable experience, but salaries are lacking.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Angleton, TX

I have been working at Benchmark Electronics

ProsGood place to build experience, and can even be a lucrative career if you can get in at the upper levels.

ConsSalaries are below average and layoff / hiring cycles seem to be frequent.

Advice to Senior Managementpay more attention to the employees (in a good way). There is more to them than the cost of employing them.
