    Pros

    Management has really turned this company around. The stock had tripled since I started working here. Boss is great, expectations are reasonable and benefits and salary are fair. Work life balance is great too. Solid products and technology.

    Cons

    It will take diligence and foresight to constantly continue to stay ahead of the curve. Might be trying to grow too fast, could backfire and lose good people in the process. Excessive policy making is taking away from the family run feel I used to enjoy.

    Advice to Management

    Slow and steady growth is safer than setting unrealistic sales targets which could reflect poorly even on the most successful employees.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Planar Systems (Beaverton, OR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    HR rep seemed very green. Asked me questions in phone interview that seemed from a script and had nothing to do with digital content or marketing. Couldnt answer a single question about the job. She decided I was "too technical" to pass on to the hiring manager.

    No wonder the position has been open for months; HR has no idea what to hire.
