    Pros

    Great work environment with emphasis on teamwork, but they also trusted employees to work independently and accepted employee input on most issues.

    Cons

    HR did not respond to my complaints about a departmental manager who was abusive and who treated me (and others) unfairly. It took many more complaints from other employees for the company to move him to another department.

    Advice to Management

    Most employee complaints have some basis in fact and should be investigated and not ignored.

    Pros

    good pay,9-5 Job just wait for the clock to turn 5 and u are out of office. no work pressure what so ever. no strict deadlines if there are any deadlines to begin with

    Cons

    This is a lighting Company they have no clue what software development means. They sell desktops with home grown software installed on the desktops. Repeat they sell desktops with software installed on it. There is no professional software development of any sort. Their software runs on single machine and on intranet and is not the company main focus. They try to eliminate as much software as possible as they primarily sell lights and software is add on. There is no data center no servers no clusters of any sort. They have some embedded C programming with UI built on C#,VB6, ASP,SQL server. Many products get cancelled after years of development. Project management is extremely bad. So called project managers do nothing to run projects. This company is not for any serious developer in general or Lead/Architect in particular. People use terms like cloud,REST and webservices and other fancy technical terms don't be fooled by it, They don't mean what it mean in real software. No software product runs on the internet at all.

    Advice to Management

    your core business is to design and sell lighting products why not focus on it and outsource software. focus on your strengths and let the software pros do their thing.

    Pros

    Clean and safe work environment. I worked in a newer building with great people.

    Pros

    Great people... Great work atmosphere

    Cons

    When moving to Colorado they hired new people off the street instead of retaining the more than qualified people that they had that need jobs to support their families.

    Advice to Management

    Have compassion for your employees and work with them during difficult times not against them.

    I am leaning a lot handling many roles in quality, MVP, and Lean. I am able to implement changes and create new processes to better our business.

    As a small plant wearing many hats of responsibility takes it's tool and priorities become a moving target.

    Overkill in the safety department!

    Advice to Management

    Stop overdressing the press brake operators. You don't HAVE to wear gauntlets and gloves to perform your duties.
