    Pros

    Laid back work environment that values creative thinking and provides opportunity for growth into various roles. there are plenty of resources to utilize when you have a question. Really friendly staff.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will get stuck in a day to day routine. The work can be repetitive but there is also opportunity to develop new skills here and there. Its tough to get in for a decent salary though.

    Pros

    Cons

    -Compensation is low
    -A lot of employee turnover (a lot is an understatement)
    -Benefits are minimal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more connected to employees throughout the company. Employees are the lifeline of any company and it's important to treat them as such. Eliminate the constant turnover--this will help the company's structure and stability for future growth.

    Former Employee - Marketing

    I worked at Antec full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The employees make the best of a bad environment, there are plenty of opportunities to learn new things as a result of poor staffing.

    Cons

    Compensation is poor, employees are overworked and departments are understaffed. The company is never able to retain any talented people. Competition is fierce and they seem to be losing focus with regard to product development. Ownership/upper management is always last to arrive yet first to leave, setting a poor example. Upper management will yell at their employees in front of the entire staff (office is small).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Empower them. Trust them.
