    Pros

    Profit sharing Bonuses paid out twice a year.

    Cons

    There are no annual performance review raises or visible salary pay structures in place for their NOC staff members. Salaries are paid well below minimum standards for Southern California Technical jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to keep and or attract intelligent, well educated employees management will need to raise the pay scale of their technical staff member employees or it will be just a matter of time before they find better, higher paying jobs.

    "Small Company" feel. Also, they are very flexible when it comes to scheduling. Company provides profit sharing bonus twice a year, which does help boost overall employee morale.

    Sometimes upper management would not be prepared for new customers/business. The pay/compensation is slightly below industry averages for all positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to communicate more effectively with employees.

    Current Employee - Programmer Analyst in Cypress, CA

    I have been working at Christie Digital

    Pros

    - Very high salary for a company that is growing fast
    - Large bonus is reflective of value towards employees and to retain important talent
    - Very low turnover

    Cons

    - Very hard to move up the ladder because senior management is very comfortable with compensation as stated above
    - Only way to move up the corporate ladder is to replace your supervisor, which is highly unlikely

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Restructure the organization such that upward mobility is more visible and feasible
    - Better performance monitoring

    - Works closely with big names in industry (entertainment, etc.)
    - Company supports contact with customers to improve feedback into product development

    - Not-invented-here mentality slows adoption of off-the-shelf technology which could reduce cost and accelerate development
    - Internal communication often depends on chance hallway meetings
    - Silos and managers trying to build/defend empires (possibly related to how they are evaluated themselves) slows adoption of changes needed to realign business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage broad group of employees in business alignment to foster buy-in and commitment.
