    I have been working at Acellent Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good office environment, very entrepreneurial spirit. no excessive supervision. while i can understand why some individuals might say that the office plays favorites, it's more like a specific underperforming employee might be "less of a favorite" than everyone. else.

    Good compensation and solid benefits, management cares. there are no firings or workers being laid off. management will let individuals know they are underperforming, which gives them time to switch jobs if they want.

    compensation, particularly bonuses are extremely merit based.

    Cons

    bonuses are extremely merit based. long staff meetings every week. management and employees are often traveling.

    Pros

    not a single thing to mention

    Cons

    Dumb Management, Rude management, Management people insult employees infront of everyone, management spends vacation considerable amount of the time outside USA, run staff meeting which is completely waste of time, spends project money for their own use, waste project money on internal work, hence the project is never done,cuts salary without any reason, makes new law on vacation time so that they get the money back from the employee benefit,hires family members, impose irrelevant work on employees when they do not understand any basic engineering, shouts on employees in the staff meeting, do not know how to pay respect to people, they think they are god, not at all, they are the worst,unprofessional and dumb people that can be found in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Acellent Technologies full-time

    Pros

    - Working with very talented multidisciplinary individuals
    - Working in a growing industry with many opportunities to learn and to innovate
    - Freedom from the overwhelming regulation tape imposed by larger companies in aerospace
    - Get-it-done mentality

    Cons

    - Haphazard regulations that are followed and enforced at a whim
    - Upper management is hardly ever in the office, resulting in long mandatory company meetings in which upper management wastes the time of 90% of employees while picking apart the details of projects involving 10% of employees. While they think they are promoting a sharing atmosphere where everyone can contribute, the valuable contributions were already made outside of that meeting.
    - Upper management cares more about finding a cheaper vendor than providing a customer with quality components -- this could be disastrous if the company goes from the R&D world to a real product
    - Just-get-it-done mentality
    - Upper management plays favorites
    - Employees are constantly being threatened with salary cuts, whether as a joke or not, this is totally unacceptable and unprofessional
    - Employee culture and life balance leaves much to be desired -- many employees work a full day and go home to work a full night because they are given so many tasks with arbitrary and unreasonable deadlines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to tone down the over-ambition and work on fostering respect for their talented employees such that they can retain their skills and experiences for more than a few years.

    Pros

    Sometimes you work with good people, but they dont last long

    Cons

    Pretty much everything. I would recommend you speak to some of the former employees before even considering a job with this one
