I have been working at Cymetrix (more than 3 years)

Pros

There is some opportunity for advancement with no previous experience. Typically the lower level employees are great people.

Cons

Senior Management regularly uses harrassment, intimidation, and bullying with lower level employees. There are never enough staff to get all the work done and project goals frequently go unmet.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe look at the type of image you are presenting to your employees. It isnt enough to say you care, you need to show it.

    Very Poor Financial Management of Company - Employees Suffer

    I worked at Cymetrix full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    For those individual who work at the coporate office or "know" someone high up in the company, this can be a very good place to work. It can also be a good place to work if new business is coming in and the company is making money. They probably pay higher than average wages, but they have to do this to keep employees (see cons)

    Cons

    Here is where the bad side comes in. Every year, the company either goes on a wage freeze (which means no salary increases for anyone - oh, except for the "management team") or does a bunch of lay offs, or sometimes both. In 2012, the company was on a wage freeze, then an email went out stating that a bunch of improvements were made and that the wage freeze would be lifted (but there would be no increases for 6 months for anyone - oh, except for the "management team" who immediatly got large salary increases). Then, 6 weeks after this email, there were a bunch of layoffs becuase all of a sudden, they are not makeing any money. There are never year end bonues - oh, except for the "management" team or for family members.

    Also, watch out for a few individuals in management. They have either been there a long time or have come and gone multiple times, but have the ear and input to the CEO. Their option will be listened to regardless of the truth. It is a very political company with "family and friends" getting the benefits.

    As an employee, you will pay through the nose if you want any health benefits (especially if you need family coverage - amily). They require manditory days off around holiday time where you either have to take vacation time or take the time off without pay (another way of cutting down their liability as vacation time is paid out when an employee leaves the company).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. You state that your employees are the "heart of the business", but only in words. Stop paying your management team higher and higher salary and bonuses. Spend some of that money on the people that actually do the work. Value your employees. Stop all the politics.

    I have been working at Cymetrix full-time

    Pros

    Nice office locations, professional, benefit options, talented IT/IS department, enthusiastic training staff, client/customer focused

    Cons

    Although the benefit packages have options, they are costly for employees with spouses and/or children. Employees are required to use vacation hours for days prior to major holidays (Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, etc), or they have to take those days unpaid if vacation hours are not available. Corporate office upper management team is very "hands-off" with other office site teams and are therefore unaware of site-specific middle-management issues and low morale. Some positions are overpaid, while some hourly positions with roles critical to the success of company-wide projects are not offered competitive wages. There is very little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and they will want to invest their best in the company. Get to know the employees that work under your middle-management supervisors. The middle-management face is not necessarily the true indicator of the environment. Encourage HR to be more supportive of employees, not just management.
