Great Company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Plexus full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWonderful culture of accountability. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Plexus. Upper management provides individuals with autonomy to run their organizations with minimal oversight provided. I appreciated the direct communication and standards the executives held the staff to in all interactions.

ConsLimited opportunities. The company is relatively small and there are only so many slots as you move up the pyramid. Plexus works to keep their good folks engaged but, there is only so much they can do at their size.

Advice to Senior ManagementOrganic growth was the champion of the past it might be time to look at acquisitions for new revenue channels and to spur further growth. I would not acquire to grow revenue but to grow service offerings which will in toe grow revenue.

Great place to work!

Mechanical Engineer II (Current Employee)
Louisville, CO

I have been working at Plexus full-time for more than a year

ProsGood career development. They recognize their valued employees and seem to compensate them accordingly. If you are looking for opportunities to lead, you can find them here. The engineering/product development work is dynamic and has large variety.

ConsDue to the overall size of the corporation, changes can be slow moving. The management overall is quite conservative, which is good for stability the drawback is they aren't very progressive in their philosophy or business approach.

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