    Great place to intern as a power electronics engineering student.

    Electrical Engineering Intern (Former Employee)
    Tualatin, OR

    ProsThe company's values at up there with the best. They truly care about their employees and each level of management is very approachable. I was compensated well for the work I was performing. Very professional business environment. Employees are kept up to date with monthly news letters from upper management and local management holds frequent meetings to make sure everyone is up to speed on the day to day operations and planning.

    ConsIt was hard to get used to the personalities of some of the engineers at first, but once I was settled in they were extremely helpful and patient whenever I had a question that needed answering.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to hire interns like me and help them to become great engineers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Many great opportunities!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company is an international diversified manufacturer with many opportunities for those with talent and runway.

    ConsIt feels like the company is becoming top-heavy, with too many Directors and VPs pushing pet projects and not enough resources supporting the manufacturing sites.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAging equipment and infrastructure at the plants needs investment. The Corporate and Group facilities are very nice, but the plants are scraping by with too-few resources. I recommend strengthening your financial support of the manufacturing sites and scaling back the HQ positions and initiatives.
