    I have been working at FLIR full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Total company vision from CEO is excellent. Great products and innovation will keep the company growing! Pay is competitive with market.

    Cons

    With quick changes come challenges supporting the business and uncertainty in what will happen next. Communication of vision is not making it into day to day "running the business" challenges. Everywhere staffing is not at the right level to support the growth, Doing more with less is the common phrase. The Company is focused on stock market results and not it's employees growth or supporting it's employees as it adds more work. Temps or salaried OT seem to be the preference over full time hires to growth support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the right people, have professional development plans and set reasonable goals for the teams. Put the same amount of work into the management of the company as is being done with the development of the next product.

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at FLIR in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had one on one with 5 people 15-30 mins each, first was hiring manager and the rest were all engineers ( they are all friendly) . Hiring manager did not say anything much just went over the interviewing process. Engineers asked general questions like what was my courses were like, what did i do.

    Interview Questions
    • Last engineer asked if I could show them inverting amplifier with gain of 10? It was straight forward question and simple question but i staggered a little, because i was not sure if he was serious or not.   Answer Question
