    Pros

    Great products, smart leadership, willing to do the right thing! I have worked at a few companies and Cognex stands out as one of the best. Great culture and place to grow! People stay at Cognex for a reason, one of the best companies in Massachusetts.

    Cons

    More interactions with our colleagues in Europe and Asia!

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Fun coworkers. Parties and socials. Halloween celebration. Listening to Doctor Bob pontificate, if only for the laughs of disbelief.

    Cons

    Little chance for advancement. Raises are tiny to non-existant. Bonuses are microscopic. Stock options are a nice perk but not lucrative unless you've been there for 15+ years. Employees are seen as interchangeable and easily replaceable spare parts. HR is a hopeless mess and defers to management without fail. Company considers parties, movie nights and other perks as part of employee "total compensation."

    Advice to Management

    As the economy improves, Cognoids are voting with their feet. You say you don't care, but there's been a revolving door in certain areas of the company recently. It will be hard to hang on to good people--even good engineers--unless you start paying better wages and giving cost-of-living raises as a start.
