    Great company, waiting for growth

    Engineer (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsHigh growth potential
    Excellent Benefits
    Flexible work environment; lots of opportunities to grow with the company

    ConsVacation time can be limited depending on seniority
    The company is pretty much in a holding pattern until high growth customers materialize

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has shifted its focus towards sales and marketing which is definitely the right direction. Only time is going to tell if the company is going to take off or not. Not a bad place to get into right now if you can.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Management in this company is lacking.

    Manufacturing Tech III (Current Employee) Concord, NC

    ProsGood benefits. Decent pay.

    ConsManagement promotes a team environment but only when it suits them. Not even close to a true team environment. Very poor communication from the top down. The management team does not promote or reward employees for hard work, skills or knowledge. Be prepared to do some boot licking if you want to go anywhere with this company. They have no idea how to utilize or evaluate talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWorry more about devoloping your good employees and less about treating them like school children.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    great benefits all around clean work environment but expectations too high for job forecast

    Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) Concord, NC

    Prosgreat benefits - profit sharing, company input and company match gives you a chance to get up to 14% and the insurance is in the top 5% of any job I've heard of with similar duties.New technology - this gives you the chance to grow with the company but be prepared for CHANGE and GROWTH, along with this comes growing PAINS.

    Yes I would recommend this job especially if the business forecast increases.

    ConsNew technology grossly over-estimated forecast. Policies and work environment is still being established and most of it is a painstaking process so be PATIENT.

    Advice to Senior Managementshare information a little more often about future of company, this is a start-up

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    lots of politics

    Technician (Current Employee) Concord, NC

    ProsClean environment, most of the people are good to work with, and benefits are decent.

    Conspay and proggression is kind of tiring, lots of team roles and hoops to jump through to make progression.

    Advice to Senior Managementbe more open about progression instead of throwing roadblocks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pay is not the worlds best

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking nights is very laid back.

    ConsManagement seems detached from the rest of the work force.
    There seems to be a lot of infighting amongst management.
    Six's idea's get stolen from the low level people who submit them and the people overseeing the 6's (Lean Six Sigma) tend to present those ideas as their own.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to get along, learn to work together.
    Please don't forget about night shift personnel, I.E. turning off the a/c at night to save money...

    Great people and company with a poor strategy.

    Process Engineer (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsCelgard puts a lot of effort into hiring great people. The people I worked with are some of the best I have ever partnered with.

    ConsCompany often finds its self in "panic mode" with regards to customers, many knee-jerk reaction decisions are made. For such a technical company, they really know very little about how to make their product well, many quality problems.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPutting all your eggs in one basket with respect to sales isn't the best long-term strategy. Review the current top-down leadership style and approach and correct it. Work on communicating effectively to employees, even middle-managers are often in the dark with large decisions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
