    Great learning step in a career, but not a place where you can advance.

    I worked at E.A. Fischione Instruments full-time

    Pros

    Work along side great people, who are dedicated to get work done to the highest quality.
    No bureaucracy or corporate issues to deal with as it's a private company.
    Ability to work with great teams and talk to anyone you need to in the company.
    Great work place and building, relaxed work environment, flex-time.

    Cons

    Everything, I mean everything goes through the CEO or the CFO, doesn't matter if it's a major sale or PO for post-it notes.
    There is a complete lack of full disclosure, others have commented that you are informed of things on a need to know basis, but you don't need to know. Often, decisions were made without involving those that would be affected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to do the work you want. Focus more on what management needs to focus on, running the company, let the employees run the projects and build the products.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at E.A. Fischione Instruments.

    Interview Details

    1. Email received from external HR firm to complete a PRO job fit personality survey.
    2. Phone call to set up initial interview at HR firm, here you will take another test and do an initial screening with the HR people, they are not affiliated with Fischione in any way, just asking questions to report to management.
    3. Phone call from Fischione to set up internal interview, if you are ok'd to proceed in the hiring process.
    4. On site interview goes like this: Arrive at scheduled time, stand in the machine shop area and dial a number to let them know you are there. Wait for someone to come get you and take you to a conference room. Wait for all the interviewers to get to the room. They will ask questions pertaining to what you should be expected to do in the job. If management is available you will then meet individually with the CFO and CEO, they will ask similar questions to the first team as well as questions that may have nothing to do with the job, yet those answers will be equally judged.
    5. If you continue on the hiring process a second interview may be scheduled with different individuals in the company for their input. Otherwise, you will be contacted with an offer.
    6. Negotiate. Start out high, but don't be afraid to negotiate.
