    Pros

    Good place to start if you don't get anywhere else.

    Cons

    Uninspiring middle management, no mentoring, disconnected from employees, petty politics and managers who talk behind an employee's back but never to to their face (manager used to talk bad about my colleagues behind their back to me so i am sure he must be doing the same about me when i am not around). Age old rating system with no transparency and uninterested managers. First time i have seen that directors are holding grudge against new employees - really shameful and negative environment. Knowledge sharing is minimal.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment
    Great co-workers
    Various opportunities to explore and grow
    Safe employer for H1B's
    Great responsibilities
    Trainings are offered when requested.
    There are lot of community involvement activities.
    Yearly picnic's, group activities etc

    Cons

    Not a fancy company like Google which gives you free food and interesting activities. For an Electrical company there is none that I could complain about.

    Pros

    As an engineering technician the work continues to change with development of new product. Time is very very flexible, it is so easy to be able to leave to make it my kids school and sporting events. Most of the people are awesome!

    Cons

    A lot of politics, strict budgeting, all of which leads to lack of supplies. Safety although a great practice is done to overkill and rediculos levels. Finally people who don't pull their weight seem to get a lot of hand holding and/or are just ignored, which is driving the quality employees out.

    Advice to Management

    More attention needs to be giving to the moral and work ethic of employees. While the lazy and inadequate are being ignored or coddled the quality employees are leaving left and right, soon you'll be left with only those who can't seem to get the job done.
