    So goes management, so goes the company...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCool product! Fun technology with a wide scope of applications. Perhaps the best product on the market for fast product development & fast prototyping. Good working hours & nice workplace.

    ConsPoor leadership & mismanagement from the top resulting in massive turnover! The harm to a company in turnover for a highly specialized technical product that takes years to master its critical technology is hard to quantify by loss of market share & sales. The new president replacing Bigler simply does not have enough of a technical background to do the job, actually a freakin English major! So he's in way over his head in the technology and temperament, even in marketing he's just clueless. Comes off as a super nice guy when you meet him, never a direct answer, just chuckles and sighs a lot... but after the veneer comes off you get to see a vicious & vindictive corporate POS. Hence builds a toxic culture. Products are so capable, yet for the high turnover in manufacturing and sales SmartMotors have high failure rate too. So even after the acquisition by a great company the SmartMotors have still not been made reliable. When products fail, they are not warranted in good faith unless a giant future sales potential exist. They charge the customer just to evaluate why the controllers for the motors fail which even when not misapplied, as they are filled with Chinese components! They have burned so many of their industrial customers & distributors by not standing behind their product or even with emergency stock for their customers, that their brand is badly damaged and will have a challenge to ever recover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShame on Moog for not doing their due diligence in this purchase. They paid over 5 times too much & got sold a bill of goods. There were duped bad, no other suitors were even looking to buy the company for its anemic profit & expiring patents. They kept it all such a good secret of the acquisition they didn't avail themselves of the employee's or ex-employees insights about the companies precarious outlook & structural problems. Moog needs to change management at this subsidiary or just cut their losses.

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

    Good learning opportunity, lacking in benefits of larger companies

    Engineer (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsOpportunities to learn a lot. A very unique and intersting product.

    ConsDuties and responsibilities are ambiguous or undefined. Management and organization is lacking. Strange culture about time off and attendance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStructure incentive programs for employees. Be more flexible with time off. Define career paths within organization

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
