Pros

Small group of people acting like family. You get to know your employees and coworkers and in general this is one smart group. The folks here are well educated and the technology can be cutting edge. If you are an engineer in RF technology then you can really be a star here.

Cons

The RF engineers are treated very well but others are treated more as support staff. Pay and promotions are weak unless you are one of the chosen few, either a RF engineer or a friend to management. The company is still small and although public, has that family feel. Unfortunately this leads to all the prejudices, infighting, preferential treatments and vying for attention you would come to expect in a family. Only the chosen few get ahead while one excuse after another is made for low salaries and incentives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more resources on creating equity in the workplace. Develop better guidelines for career improvement so that non RF engineers have a clearer path for career advancement.

    I worked at Anaren part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salaries, Atmosphere, and Corporate benefits are all great features of working at Anaren. Upper management is great too. Their new work-out facility & life-work balance initiative are great.

    Cons

    Career opportunities. Really, for most people, there is little downside to working at Anaren. If you want to become a millionaire, don't go here - but then again, you wouldn't be in Syracuse if that is what you are after.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the the talented and promote them.
