    I worked at Analogic full-time

    Pros

    I got a chance to work with some very intelligent and competent engineers. Learned a lot and the people were friendly.

    Cons

    The company has frequent layoffs which seldom make the news. The remaining employees then have to work harder to make up employees that are gone. They have already laid off all of the deadwood and are now picking off the hard workers.
    There is a trend of the manufacturing operations getting sent off to China.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's keep manufacturing in the USA!

    I worked at Analogic

    Pros

    Nice people. Very professional and knowledgeable. Good benefits. Very structured organization.

    Cons

    They do not keep sales people long enough to get established in territory. Many people were let go this past year. There is no in-house support for products. Staff very busy traveling and working all hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is not open to discussion. Does not have a good rapport with staff. Unapproachable and unresponsive.

    I worked at Analogic full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people, onsite gym and cafeteria, interesting work

    Cons

    Since CEO Green took over there is a constant fear of layoffs, anyone with seniority gets laid off first. No new products. Too many upper management and VP's. Hard to get promotions. Millions of dollars spent in remodeling but only minimal yearly raises, if at all. Outlook doesn't look good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of your people first. Stop the spending.

    Contractor Supporting Security Scanners

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Analogic as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Products and work were very interesting.

    Working hours could be flexible when needed.

    Most employees were friendly, cooperative, and helpful.

    Supervision was minimal, but guidance was always available.

    Cons

    I did not have a computer until 2 weeks after being hired and waited for over a month for needed software.

    Computer accounts for contractors automatically expired after 90 days if not renewed by supervisors, who typically were not notified prior to expiration. Reinstatement could take more than 2 days. Nearly every contractor I talked with encountered this problem at least once (and often more).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to inefficiencies in daily operations.

    Always give contractors the same respect as regular employees.

    I worked at Analogic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits were about average, they added a workout facility and offered yoga and other classes. Exempt employees got 3 weeks PTO, no separate sick time.

    Cons

    Employees either had 15+ years service or less than 5. Management added businesses to the mix without considering how the work in the acquired business would get done when added to existing businesses. The acquired companies operated like nothing had changed, the existing managers offered no help integrating them new into the existing structure.
    Only senior management got stock, middle managers could not even participate in the employee stock purchase plan. This left the middle mangers working 50+ hours a week with no incentive to see the company do well, not a good feeling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The acquisition process does NOT end with the announcement to the street. It's what happens AFTER the purchase that makes the acquisition successful.

    Former Employee - Project Engineer in Peabody, MA

    I worked at Analogic full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    When engineering was led by Bernie Gordon, the company and its engineers prospered. I worked at Analogic for nearly 25 years.

    Cons

    When CEO Green took over, the company fired everyone who was over the age of 63 and started to run the company quarter-to-quarter like the stockholders wanted. This was to maximize their return-on-investment quarter-to-quarter with no future prespective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Analogic was a technology company. It attracted inventors who produced new technology. Now the company is a distributor of others' technology. Customers will bypass te middleman (Analogic) soon.

    I have been working at Analogic as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    They have many offices internationally and have so many product lines that I can only see them growing in the future. A solid tech company.

    Cons

    As a young new employee, I was excited about the possibility of getting promoted but after two years my salary was never increased and was never given more responsibilities.

    I worked at Analogic full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with really good cutting edge technology
    Fairly laid back

    Cons

    The company is full of people that have worked at the company for minimum 15+ years so very few young people at the company.
    There has been a huge brain drain in the IT dept mgmt can't handle day-to-day IT operations
    Dept is blatantly racist, especially mgmt - treatment of minority workers in IT dept was very unprofessional and discriminatory
    They don't like "new blood" since dept is all people with 20+ years experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in some new blood
    Get sensitivity training for mgmt

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Peabody, MA

    I worked at Analogic full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    State of the art for EE design, data acquision systems.
    Challenging complex systems are engineered, like a CT complete machines or
    subsystems

    Cons

    Weak ME and SW designers. Very extensive and mostly ignorant middle management layer.
    As a result, decisions are made by "political" reasons, not technical. This kills any desire to
    innovate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider laying off project managers, product managers,etc and promote best engineers
