    Enjoyed working on a variety of projects

    Product Engineer (Former Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsThe working environment is Friendly and the varied content of contract projects can be more interesting than companies with a small product line. Also, overtime is rare.

    ConsVery few employees are over 40 and there is a focus on new college graduates. There is some pressure to move into management, which can be pro or con depending on what you like to do., equipment budgets are sometimes small, depending on the terms of customer contracts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome "grey hair" is valuable.

    Engineering Solutions - fun place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boulder, CO

    ProsGreat people to work with, sharp engineers. Working hours not too bad (<45 hrs per week). Decent benefits and perks. Direct customer interaction, challenging and diverse project work.

    ConsSalaries a little low. Gender ratio pretty bad (<10% women) in Engineering design centers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall, a good place to work

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsThere is a lot of variety in the types of product and work that is done, which keeps people from being 'pigeon-holed' into a particular type of position within their field. The management is generally good and responsive. Within the engineering group, most of the managers are degreed engineers also, so it is easier to have technical conversations. The other people who work there make it a very enjoyable place to work.

    ConsThe work is not always cutting-edge technology. Also, promotions to higher level positions are based on opportunity based experiences - if you haven't been assigned by management to a project that helps you meet your objectives for a promotion, you will likely not get promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on ensuring that there is good quality work to keep the engineering staff engaged. Otherwise, there is a big risk of losing valuable employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Positive Review

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Buffalo Grove, IL

    ProsEveryone respects others and wants to be successful for our customers. Management is cautious on growth so doesn't over extend.

    ConsDue to industry, it can be very busy at times with limited resources. A fiscally conservative company also results in lower wages.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAgree with approach of how company is currently run. Management does not buy manufacturing from customers just to grow the business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
