    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and management
    Many managers want their employees to succeed in their careers
    Diverse company with connections to many channels
    Strong sales organization
    Deep knowledge sharing process

    Cons

    Self insured health program (high premium)
    Bureaucratic
    Merit raises would be nice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look after your employees and their careers. When you help clear tape for them to progress, they work harder in the interim and will reflect positively on you as they move up.

    Creative compensation would help produce more results and increase productivity.

    Pros

    If you are a self-motivated ladder climber, you will find yourself moving up if you have the right talent. Leadership has changed a few times in ten years and I think it is at its best so far.

    Cons

    Health Insurance Benefits are not nearly good enough for a company this size. If you move from one position to another, compensation is not on par with the national average.

    Pros

    Work Life Balance, ability to learn outside of work, engagement with community such as Christmas in October, First robotics, and Harvestors

    Cons

    The health insurance and benefits package is not very competive. In some case it is actually cheaper to get insurance on your own.

    Pros

    One of the biggest pros to the company is company match 401k and pension.

    Cons

    Just speaking on my personal experiences. I have to participate in an on call rotation every two week. I have an hour response time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to pay more attention to our customers and make more visits to establish a relationship with them.

    Pros

    Senior Leadership has a great pipeline of New Technology. Collegues are nice people.

    Cons

    While I did not earn a promotion or lateral transfer; I did far too little networking. My fifth manager gave everyone in our group perfectly average evaluations on every criteria. The other 4 managers were great. I challenged the average rating to no avail. Nine months later I got a reduction in force. Choose your battles, wisely!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a manager gives everyone perfectly average ratings, it is a red-flag the manager may not be engaged.

    Pros

    the best of the training and good understanding of customers and the Company itself. They are not control freak so you can give ideas and innovate. The changes sometimes are not very clear but the customer focus is clear.

    Cons

    Narrow possibility to a better position, a lot of people with seniority, so if you want to scale positions its kind of hard. The compensation is average to the market and the perks are below market. If you are in HR or IT the possibilities for a better position are even worst.
