Pros

A leader in very unique technologies.

Cons

Technology is constantly being updated and expanding into new territories, yet the company kept reducing and eliminating training. As engineers were expected to know more and more, they were trained less and less. Unless you enjoy spending your nights and weekends training yourself to stay up to speed, avoid working for this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train your employees on the new technology you develop.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefits and good pay. The chance to work with some bright minds in the technology world.

    Cons

    Some managers that have been there since the start of the company have probably been promoted past their level on competence. Tenure sometimes seems to be more valued than ability. Sometimes in the Product Development division it seems like there is a good 'ole boy network and if you get along with the right group you won't move very far.

    This is a con for me, but could be a pro for someone else. I was able to get my work done in about 4 hours and still out performed my teammates. If you are a producer you will find the work easy, but then that is part of the problem. It is easy to just do enough and skate by... a lot of people seem to take advantage of that.
