    Old School

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsA longstanding, stable company that will be around for awhile.

    ConsA bit myopic when it comes to leveraging software and technology. Coming from a manufacturing background, they have yet to embrace the 21st century.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is more than a little cronyism taking place here, at least in the IT department. Time to clean house. Also, IT talent has been fleeing due to mismanagement.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
