Pros

Aggressive growing company that tries to do interesting manufacturing and technical things.

Cons

Unplanned, unorganized growth by M&A resulting in work place chaos. No communication except when pink slips are issued to reduce the expense side of their businesses. No due diligence examining capabilities, expenses, potential or skill sets beyond what can be sold to an investor group.

Advice to Management

Stop rolling the dice and consolidate the organization into some biz space the management team actually understands.

    Pros

    Very cool and smart people I work with. Managers are very approachable (at least in the upper management ranks)

    Cons

    Benefits arent all that good. Health Insurance is expensive and it's not very good coverage (even on their BEST plan). Trying to get a raise is like pulling teeth

  2. Good people, very over worked, paltry benefits offering

    Pros

    Dedicated long time employees are "the survivors" of multiple acquisitions - mashed together.

    Cons

    Prepare yourself to have a heapload of work dumped upon you without adequate resources ($ or human) to accomplish them. Benefits are truly awful, expensive with a very high deductible.

    Advice to Management

    Purge all middle management. Good people, local management is working hard to get the company on the right track - but see cons above for reasons why it may be very challenging to move forward.
