    Decent Company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMy experience has been management is very hands off and allows their employees to work at their own pace. Some of the training and education opportunities are very good. The culture is very nice but a bit old.

    ConsRaises, salary, and benefits are average to poor. The benefits are not particularly good. There is only one option for the medical and it's not particularly good. The dental and vision are mediocre at best. Raises are 2% to 4%, I've never heard of anything higher than that. There is no bonus or profit sharing. Salary tend to be below average.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe vacation policy is out of date. 7 years of employment is a very long time to wait for a 3rd week of vacation. There's absolutely no bonus system, perk points are a joke, so the salary has to be competitive and it's not.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They did not keep verbal promises

    Engineering Manager (Former Employee) Missouri City, TX

    ProsEach local office has their own HR management and bring in any one who classified as their friend

    ConsThey did not keep verbal promises and used all kind of excuse for not increase the raise in salary

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't promise if you can not keep. You should listen to both parties when it comes to complaining. and judge people for the whole year of their work not just one day that you were not happy about the employee

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unlimited opportunities, but only for engineers

    (Current Employee) Chanhassen, MN

    Pros-Employment opportunities for engineers right out of school
    -Employment opportunities for engineers in sales, marketing, product development, product management and more

    Cons-You must be an engineer to be hired for a position in sales, marketing, product development, product management
    -President and 99% of VPs, Directors, etc. are engineers and not receptive to having anyone but an engineer in a Marketing Director, Marketing Manager, Marketing Product Manager (called Marketing Engineer) or Product Manager role
    -Pay is under market value

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to reach the sales goals you have projected, it is time to wake up and hire marketing people for marketing roles. If you need to have surgery, do you hire an accountant to do the surgery? Why would you hire an engineer to do marketing? It is two professions with different skillsets.
