    I have been working at Bourns

    Pros

    Bourns has good benefits - vacation, holidays, insurance, 401k match, profit sharing. Also a lot of potential with being private and no debt. The Bourns family has managed the company well for over 60 years.

    Cons

    Training and personal development are not considered; only short term planning is in place. Senior management has made very poor decisions in staffing up for new programs and managing plant shutdowns. Company operates like a public company in that jobs are cut as soon as the bottom line is not in line with plan; unstable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make long term planning a priority. Don't make too many large changes at once. Give employees ability to rate their managers. Pay incentive bonuses for outstanding achievements.
