Chances for growth in some functions (finance, marketing, sales) but low ceiling for other functions (R&D).

Pros

Commitment to safety, ethical, good benefits, diversified company with opportunities to move into new careers without having to leave the company, 100% tuition reimbursement

Cons

Promotions from within do happen but majority of senior management positions are filled with external candidates. Without a graduate degree from Harvard or MIT it will be difficult to become a senior manager or director.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would change the R&D organization by creating additional levels for research associates, especially for non-engineers, so individuals have the ability to be promoted.

    Pros

    The people are good and friendly. There is professional work culture and supportive atmosphere for one to grow in. Depending on the role there is an opportunity to travel significantly. One can travel to several exotic locations all over the globe such as Asian, North America, Europe, South America as well as Europe. Pay is good and you will get the opporunity to be reviewed for pay raises at least annually. The company is well established as well as well respected in it's industry. They make conservative stable decisions, based on the long term welfare of the company and it's employees.

    Cons

    There are limited career advancement opportunities if you are not willing to relocate, the companie's corporate offices are in Boston and therefore senior mangement roles would require you to move there. Again, depending on the role you take on, the travel can be very taxing and you will be required to be away from family for significant periods of time. In the same vein, depending on the size of the team you will be working with them very often and repeatedly. Again, that can be either a good thing or a bad thing depending on your relationships with the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should be a little more dynamic in responding to market situations and industry-specific developments and competitive pressures. Although the Senior Management is often aware of all the above, they should be a bit quick to respond to these situations.
