    Not for a Go Getter

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsStandard 9-5 hours. Very little overtime.
    Free lunch
    Decent health insurance
    Nice profit sharing plan

    ConsPeople are promoted without the accompanying compensation. Because of that it's a company of commuters.
    The owner micro manages every aspect of the business.
    Very little room for advancement or professional growth.
    A place to work just to say you have a job.
    The most talented people either leave for greener pastures or get fired for being too smart.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere really is no advice to give. The owner runs the place with an iron fist. He's going to do whatever he wants regardless of what anyone says.

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

    As a FMA technician you discover a load of consumer electronics.

    Conssmell of vinegar when clearing coffee machines

    Very Hostile - Don't get stuck here if you can help it

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRaises aren't great by any means, but consistent (even in a down economy)
    Stable company if you can handle the bullying from your bosses

    ConsThere are two classes of employees here: the chosen ones and the despised ones. Doing a good job is irrelevant. Saving money or creating efficiencies is irrelevant. Accountability is non existent if you are a chosen one. If you are despised, watch your back. There is no changing roles, reputations, or "employee class". Management ego is at the forefront of every decision. Kiss the ring or kiss your future in this company goodbye.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice at all. Either you're aware of the hostile environment you create and find it acceptable, or you're unaware and you're blind and can't read this website.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people, management is unfair

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsComp breakfast and lunch, profit sharing and 401-k, good people. Benefits are good but each year the cost increases while coverages decrease

    ConsEmployees are overworked or bored to death. People are often fired for very little offenses while others get away with murder. Boss has his favorites list. Compensation is all over the board but in most cases are below market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate your employees. Get more feedback from the people in the tredges

    This company still operates like it did in the 80's

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsLearned a lot by using my own resourcefulness.

    ConsNo opportunity for advancement. Once you are in a job, you are stuck. Petty behavior among top management, you are embarrassed to be seen with them at client meetings. Overall, very unprofessional. The human resources department is basically nonexistent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in a human resources department and teach your managers how to develop people.

    Take the good with the bad

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsGood benefits, great people, no-cost breakfast and lunch, decent profit sharing, great options for investing your 401-k

    ConsSalaries are below market, some departments get away with murder while others are held to strict rules. People leave the company and their positions are often not filled while their colleagues are expected to pickup the workload without additional compensation. Hostile workplace. Really unfair across the board. If you're used to corporate America, this will be a tough transition.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo retain good people, get market salary information and bring people up to where they should be instead of giving them the basic raise. Just because you're a friend of the family, doesn't make you qualified for the job and definitely doesn't qualify you for a higher salary.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I love designing and the people plus environment make it a pleasure to come to work every day.

    Lead Designer (Current Employee) El Segundo, CA

    Prosdesign environment is open and you are not limited in your creativity

    Consvery corporate atmosphere and not many areas to be promoted within the company because upper management doesn't leave or promote many people.

    Advice to Senior Managementlearn to promote better from within and keep employees longer
