I have been working at Berkeley Process Control
Pros – -Ability to work hands on in a number of areas
- The entire operation engineering, sales, manufacturing was concentrated at one site
-Exposure to wide range of customers in different industries from converting, to nuclear power to semiconductor manufacturing.
- Ideas could be easily shared with management chain
Cons – -Product line ultimately became a bit too limited to maintain competitive position as an independent company
-Business was highly cyclical - closely tied to manufacturing related capital spending
Advice to Senior Management – Continue to focus on developing a suite of standard mass market products vs. highly customized/niche solutons that marked the company's early development

I worked at Berkeley Process Control
Pros – Interesting projects to work on. The people are great except for a few people in power.
Cons – There are many downsides. The biggest downside: The president/founder of the company has insecurity issues. He does not trust his employees. Moral is low. Environment is gloomy. There are several people that started working there and quit within a month or so.
Advice to Senior Management – After 25 years, you need to look at what is wrong with the company. Maybe time to meet with the Velocity 11 folks to get some pointers.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
