    I worked at SAFT

    Pros

    Very focused on core technology
    Not too political
    Benefits on par with other global companies
    Family events are fun
    Company seems committed to long term success

    Cons

    Quality of workspace inconsistent from location to location
    Central (corporate) support functions are not very helpful - they seem to be understaffed
    Sometimes there are unproductive disagreements between locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in corporate resources to really share best practices from location to location
    Be sure sites are properly staffed with the right level of resources to insure work-life balance for everyone not just some
