    Pros

    I have the opportunity to work with the special projects from very large customers, so my position is very versatile and interesting.

    Cons

    The pay is low. I have been employed for 16 months now and no review and no discussion on pay increase even for cost of living increase.

    Advice to Management

    If you would pay a living wage, you would get the qualified personnel.

    Pros

    Very good work environment, average benefits and good payment. I can work from my home with no problems and the shift hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    Company is still going through the growing pains of transforming its business model; new building, more paybills, workload is heavy and a lot of 'special projects' but still managable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, way to go but we can make this ship to stay

    Pros

    Good upper management skills in the US operation. Well thought out business opportunities. Opportunity to learn new skills and grow with company.

    Cons

    Poor upper management skills in Asia operation. Lack of concern, regard for employees lives outside of work. Mistaking movement for progress.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if upper management would consider bringing some of the business back to the US. While the "Bottom line" looks better up front with business in Asia, believe this is misleading. The expense of missed deliveries, frustration and poor treatment of US vendors, has caused a real crisis here in the real world. The fact that we are now using more and more vendors from China and surrounding countries, is a real issue.

    Pros

    Company grew out of some major electronics manufacturer, the culture is very diverse and I found it a good mix.

    Cons

    As it is still adapting to its past phenomenal growth, it sometimesw has a fair amount of package that it carries around.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on working to grow this company and the costs will continuously improve. The employees are still a great asset to the business.
