    I worked at Analogic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is just the right size to be able to know anyone and everyone who knows how to get things done. Very interesting and complex products.

    Cons

    Seemed like there was a round of layoffs every other year, so make sure your resume is up to date. Not a lot of mobility for internal hires.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of great talent throughout the organization. Fill more openings through internal hires to reduce the need for layoffs when the business cycle slows.

    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 Management

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

    I worked at Analogic full-time (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 Management

    Think of your people first. Stop the spending.

    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 Management

    Let's keep manufacturing in the USA!

    Total lack of leadership and direction. Don't see a promising future for Analogic.

    I worked at Analogic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people trying to do the right thing. Most of the employees truly care about company direction and want to help Analogic be successful.

    Cons

    The company leadership is lacking; best positions go to friends of executive management, regardless of qualifications. The CEO and VPs need open their eyes to what is really going on in the company. Senior managers need to be strong enough to admit when issues exist and then come up with plans to address the problems. Instead, many issues get brushed under the rug, hoping that no one will notice (or that someone else will get the blame).

    Advice to Management

    Executive management needs to put the company first. Identify the MISSION of the company and drive towards it (hint - it is not about your personal bonuses!).

    I worked at Analogic full-time (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 Management

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