    If you can stand verbal abuse, favoritism, and being lied to constantly, then it's a great place to work.

    Pros

    Not any real pros, but if you show up they'll pay you... Most of the time. If you can manage to become one of the favored, you don't have to work, just show up.

    Cons

    Nobody is held accountable for anything. Production processes are a joke. Need better production equipment but remodeled the break room instead. Can't trust management, will lie to your face and can't keep confidential conversations to themselves..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone isn't meant to be a leader, be careful who you put in charge. Some 20yr olds don't have the life experience to lead teams of people twice their age. All respect is lost for them as leaders when they respond to questions with immature remarks.

    Pros

    For some quick money it's ok, as long as you can take the verbal abuse and childish accusations. I learned curse words that management used against employees.

    Cons

    Getting the product out at any cost. Temporaries float in and out. Managers and Supervisors quit after a few months. Disorganized. Procedures are damned. Verbally abusive work place. Lack of responsibility. Lay offs come around every year. Low pay for the amount of work HEAPED on you. Temporary Culture. Management oversight is non existent. Manger doesn't even know wants going on other than how much revenue is being brought in or who to lay off. Meetings are nothing but a blame game, full of accusations and EXTREME anger. The problem is solved when someone can be blamed. Isn't so much a manufacturing company, more like a Hollywood tabloid. Hard to watch fellow employees being cursed at and accused of issues that never involved them. No incentives for the year other than HUGE amounts of overtime during the fourth quarter. If you value your self respect and blood pressure, steer clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. CT deserves your style.

    Young management team that doesn't make the best decisions. The company is going in the wrong direction. ( Bay Area team )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put the cart in front of the horse! Don't get upset when people give advice, that only means they care! Promote from within, acknowledge the team - they are the ones that make it happen.

    Pros

    Superb company culture, many business units with opportunity for career growth, excellent training regimen, diverse employee base.

    Cons

    Local business unit still being controlled by favoritism of a few mid-level management personnel. Unfortunately, some of these mid-level managers should have been fired many years ago for indiscretions, but remain on staff. New managementr has no clue about electronics manufacturing and is micro-managing and micro-controlling which does not fit the Creation culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before hiring a replacement manager for a business unit, due diligence in vetting the person's background and experience will save you the embarrassment of having to fire this person later.

    Pros

    The company cares for it's customers. Most of the full hire employees work very hard to meet the customers product specifications and on time delivery.

    Cons

    Creation is going with the trend of only hiring contract workers. There are less and less long term employees there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Full hire employees care about the company and their customers. Contract workers often don't. If you want to please existing customers and win new business you need employees that care.

    Current Employee - Product Engineer in Burnaby, BC (Canada)

    Pros

    I have a good work-life balance and that's important to have, I feel. There is a significant number of people with 10+ years working.

    Cons

    Salary is lower than average. Professional growth within the organization is limited. Skills appear to be lower priority for people hired for certain positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders should lead with examples. Passing the bucket without proper direction wastes time and drains energy.

    Pros

    Excellent people and culture inspired by core values. Many opportunities to learn and grow.
    Customer focused team model breaks down traditional barriers and siloing. A fun place to work and great team dynamics.

    Cons

    Lower pay, partial benefits, understaffed in areas. Bonuses not guaranteed and no pension plan. High leadership turnover. Uneven work distribution and pay amongst employees for similar jobs and varying experience levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvement is needed with new business development to meet BHAG.
