    10 years in electronics

    Quality Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Budapest, MO

    ProsYou are never bored. Good performance resulting in promotions. Management is open for suggestions. Training opportunities available.

    ConsIf you are not in the "inner circle" you can easily be the first to be fired during a headcount cut independently of your performance, this is mainly relevant at leader levels. In case of an average employee it is based on real performance. Working environment is not always good in all offices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLessons learned never identified from business fails. No real benchmark why no more business can be reached.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a bad place to work.

    IT Applications Support (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsPeople here are genuinely nice and willing to help in any way possible. Many opportunities to grow, if you ask.

    ConsCompensations is a bit low, no fault to the company. HR tries to get its "bang for the buck"

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould be nice if they offered more opportunities for employee growth.

    OK experience, but not great

    HR Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsSome great people, compensation was decent, some management really cared, culture on paper was good, company has potential

    ConsRaises were small at best, hard to get promoted in some areas of the company, had a silo mentality, some management had poor management skills and management does not live the culture

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should lead with the culture in mind and hold others accountable to live the culture

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
