    Pros

    Awesome coworkers and flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Upper management will kill your site because they cannot be bothered to come to the site and listen to the engineers. Additionally, while they are killing your site they will lie to the employees to cover up their intent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and start communicating with your engineers.

    Pros

    The company match for the 401K is good.

    Cons

    The executive leadership is so weak that the company is becoming more and more unprofitable. They keep laying off people in order to make the bottom line look good, when what they really need a thorough house cleaning at the top levels. The good people are over worked and looking to get out, while those who are incapable of making a contribution continue to get paid well for doing next to nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Things are not getting better. Instead of laying off people who actually perform, you should be looking at pay cuts for yourselves in order to make the company profitable again.

    Pros

    decent pay, good benefits, 401k match, 100% vested, holiday shut down, that is it really...

    Cons

    always in cost cutting mode, even at the employee's expense (layoffs) they don't care, as long as they show they're making their numbers always, always, always in change and chaos mode, constant changes happening and shifting, in LEAN mode every day horrible leadership team, barely approachable people talk behind your back, so watch your back...cannot trust anyone here lack of growth, they promote "internal" but only if your part of leaderships' "favorite circle"

    Advice to Management

    retire, leave, move away, do something to stop the bleeding, because greed will come back to haunt you...

    Pros

    Great products, good benefits, fair pay

    Cons

    Always in crisis mode. Upper Management does not know what work-life balance means and don't seem to care about employees. Endless overtime, working over holidays, etc. Operations management is a revolving door. QEs, ME's, Buyers, Planners, Warehouse are all overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead wood and hire more support people. Get new management at Division Level.

    Pros

    There's a Holiday shutdown between Christmas and New Years, benefits are decent

    Cons

    Working LEAN doesn't mean you work with 2/3s of the staff you need to get the job done - unless the processes in place, which they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Less Talk, more walk.
