    I worked at Brooks Instrument full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities to move around within the company and pick up new experiences. Strong emphasis on process improvement.

    Cons

    The operation is very lean. As with many contemporary companies, you will be assigned more responsibilities than can practically be accomplished.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They are trying to develop new talent, which is good for future managers. Go there to get initial industry experience.

    Cons

    It is a very small company in a small town, so the location is not the best possible. It is also a bit dreary in the office

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the future and hiring young people out of school recently with new ideas. This will bring the company back to life.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Brooks Instrument full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The physical plant was well maintained. Had a very diverse make-up of production employees. Felt somewhat safe working the night shift.

    Cons

    The upper management always seemed to be pulling at straws when it came to getting efficient production systems in place. It was always a guessing game when it came to getting the product out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time actually listening to the employees who are producing the product rather the "yes" men who are just covering their tails.


  6. Cyclical business with lackluster leadership
