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.

    I have been working at Cognex full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company pays extreme attention to details about how you feel about your everyday life. Excellent location of the office in the heart of the city. Plenty of places to go to grab lunch. Great equipment, always high-end hardware (DELL), office furniture is from Blue, highest quality you can wish for. Great people, cool atmosphere, MOC (Ministry Of Culture) to make sure the social life amongst "Cognoids" is always busy.

    Cons

    No real cons, maybe personal preferences for some, but I couldn't mention anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management in Hungary should be more like management in the main US office.
