Pros

Talented group of people who are willing to help out and come together to get the job done. Minimal amount of office politics and finger pointing when things go wrong. Culture and job posting system make it easy to try new things without having to leave the company to do so.

Cons

Too much old blood running the company. Many employees now are just going through the motions and have lost enthusiasm; depressed by a lack of corporate vision and guidance. Too high a premium is placed on design engineering.

Advice to Management

Need some new people in the senior ranks; preferably from outside the company.

    Pros

    The benefits are very goo. There is a lot of job security across a historically dynamic market. The company has a very academic atmosphere, and actually feels a lot like a college campus. Everyone is very welcoming as well, with approximately 80% of employees being engineers. That said, expect to initiate the conversation.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for personal growth. It is quite hard to get noticed and recognition for a good performance. This is because many in the company have their head burried in their work, being collaborative only when necessary. The business systems are a bit antiquated, reducing the overall efficiency of the company. There is largely a top-down management style, without a lot of feedback coming up from the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention more to low level managers who are most intimate with areas that need improvement


  2. Great pay and benefits, management has blinders on as you go up

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits. 5% 401k Company contribution PLUS 3% match on first 4% you contribute. Bonuses were averaging around 15% peaked at 25%, bottom was around 4%. Healthy company financially, - pay freeze, but not cut in downturn of '08-'09, company still posted profits too. Local management (Greensboro, NC) and peers in engineering are great to work with.

    Cons

    Corporate and upper management are not listening to the local teams, they've cut costs a lot and have definitely made the company leaner financially, but some has come and is still coming at the expense of tying the hands of some of the engineering teams.

    Advice to Management

    Think. Listen. Come visit locally and try to understand real issues.
