I worked at Cognex

Pros

Cognex demands a lot of their employees, and they will tell you this at the first interview. However if you enjoy working with intelligent, hard working people you won't mind the long hours. They also go out of their way to make sure employees feel appreciated with parties, recognition awards, bonuses.

Cons

Dr. Bob (the founder) doesn't always want to hear opinions that differ from his own.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to show employee appreciation, provide flexibility for family life so people do not have to choose one or the other.

    Pros

    Smart management. Puts company and employee needs ahead of personal needs. Rewards and incentives for top performers.

    Cons

    Management is smart and knowledgeable but doesn't always listen to younger engineers or others hired from the outside that might have good ideas too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow the company. Take some risks to diversify. You have great knowledge that can be applied to new markets.

    Pros

    Overall cognex is a great company to work for. Very laid back work environment for the most part as long as you get your work done. There is a lot of freedom to be creative and work out your own solutions to problems. Managers always listen to suggestions and are open to your ideas.

    Cons

    Too far out of town. But that is only in relation to where I live so...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between the different groups in the building.
