Former Employee - Software Engineer III in Bend, OR

I worked at Advanced Energy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

* Location - Bend, OR is fabulous.
* Promises - they said a lot - did nothing.
* Offer Letter - had the correct legal disclaimers.

Cons

* Offices - trailers, construction, cubes, dust, bad light, noise, and lack of ventilation (smell).
* Management - talk, talk, talk; promise, promise, promise ... no deliveries.
* Direction - none.
* Dishonesty - I was promised a 10% bonus and quit because they changed the policy and dropped bonuses.
* Petty - their HR docs states 401k matching at 50% of the first 5%; which they did until somebody decided to retroactively remove 1/2 of all their matching - months after I had quit. Can they do that ?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

* Before you write offer letters make sure you will honor them.

    I worked at Advanced Energy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. A large mix of low volume products makes it interesting - always something new to learn. This is a good place to get some experience.

    Cons

    Yes men are more likely to be promoted. Management does not want to hear the truth but just a yes. Layoffs are very common. I would not recommend this company for a long-term career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees more.

    I worked at Advanced Energy

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for advancement during the course of my employment.

    Cons

    Business is a rollercoaster. Bottom line profits take precedence over American jobs so many are lost to move more of the business to China.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinvest in America. The products produced overseas (China especially) are not as good as those produced in the USA. You are selling out America.
