Pros

Talented and extremely helpful colleagues, especially in the R&D and manufacturing divisions. Innovative problem solving is recognized and valued. Opportunity to work on interesting projects. Since the company is involved in a wide range of products, there are never any dull moments.

Cons

After the 2009 workforce reductions, the pace of operations has quickened tremendously, however upper management has prevented the hiring of adequate support staff to insure that operations run smoothly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to invest in technology to stay ahead of low cost manufacturers. Realize the importance of adequate staffing to maintain the pace of operations.
