    Pros

    While it has been in business for nearly 50 years, Fischione has been experiencing an explosion in growth in the past ~5 years. The company is developing cutting edge technology, is making bold moves into new markets, and has been adding first-rate talent to fill key product development positions. The management is open to new ideas. It has shown a willingness to try new approaches and to allow employees who show initiative to expand programs within their area of expertise.

    Cons

    The company is growing fast. One must be flexible to work in such an environment. Sometimes there is no existing infrastructure to support your initiatives, therefore, you have to devise the infrastructure, document it, and make it the new SOP. If you find such a scenario to be exciting and challenging, then it is not a negative, at all. If you find such a scenario scary or too stressful, then yes, it would be a negative.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing: keep investing in top-level talent, keep pushing product innovation, and keep pursuing new markets.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at E.A. Fischione Instruments (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It took at least 3 phone interviews before the onsite interview. The whole process took months. But when the onsite interview finally happened, some of the engineers I spoke with seemed to be dialing it in during the interview. They weren't nearly as prepared as you would expect. They also had kind of a creepy loyalty to the owner, referring to him as a "visionary". I guess when the owner has absolute power and a big ego, flattery becomes the path of least resistance. They made me a little afraid to work there.

    Interview Questions

    • The owner asked me a question that made me think he had spoken to my past coworkers without telling me.   1 Answer
