    Pros

    Great place to work. Everyone is so friendly and they focus on their employees. Growing company in the Visual and Audio fields.

    Cons

    no advancement opportunities. Not very customer centered. more focused on metrics. Some of management have no goals and do not appreciate their employees

    Advice to Management

    Watch what management is doing and start correcting their actions. Pay attention to what employees on lower levels are complaining about or what problems they have.

    Pros

    -Was a great place for me to pick up a lot of skills I hadn't previously had the chance to use first hand
    -Twice a year bonuses
    -Great coworkers and middle management

    Cons

    -No room for advancement, at one point I had HR straight up lie to me about opportunities outside my department
    -NOC was nearly impossible if you have a family. You were shamed if you asked for any time off.
    -Low pay scale, yearly bonuses (based on profits) cited as fair enough compensation
    -The majority of management have known each other for some decades (all white men) and will routinely cover for each other despite poor performance and complaints to HR about their behavior. They were incredibly overpaid and would make it a point to flaunt it with yachts and flashy cars.

    Advice to Management

    End the boys club, look at qualifications, not connections. Maybe even set foot in the departments you manage

    Take a look at pay scales for certain positions and adjust to current pay trends.

    Pros

    Attractive Pay and Bonus Structure and Opportunities are there if you want them. Fitness facility and full service cafeteria

    Cons

    Demand for product is still present but on the backside of a peak

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating and reward your employees who think outside the box. Sometimes the solutions are right there you just need to dig for it

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    "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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate more effectively with employees.

    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 Management

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