    Pros

    Company is well diversified between government and private sector. Company is very involved in community programs, health and green initiatives. They spend a lot of money on R&D and are not managing for short term profit.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lot of "That's the way we have always done it."

    Advice to Management

    You need to invest in IT if you want to stay on top in our industry.

    Pros

    Vacation, Friday's off, Christmas shutdown, you wear a lot of hats = you get a lot of experience in the different areas of product design.

    Cons

    There are a lot of random processes, unconnected software programs which we use. The way we release part numbers and get them certified to an industry standard is not always the best.

    Advice to Management

    The immediate management here is really great, they're open to new idea and they accept criticism. As for the CEO, keep pushing us into the 21st century and please do not stop making changes. All of the recent changes you have made to salary structure and promotions, have made a difference.
