Pros

Cutting edge technology, ability to collaborate, excellent employees, good work/life balance.

Cons

Top leadership not innovative enough and unable to see what it means to compete in the industries in which they say they are competitors.

Advice to Management

Listen to those in your company who have not worked for the same employer their whole lives. Embrace the now. Innovate, don't expect that the work will just keep coming to us.

    Pros

    On the Job Training. Free Dish Network, Exposure to Video compression and uplink technoligy. 4x10 hr work weeks

    Cons

    Below industry wages. Slow advancement, Below average medical plans. No support from Sr. Management for employees.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management is to hire good employees and work to retain them by providing competitive wages, benefits, and advancement possibilities. If you treat your employees well they will respond w/ dedication to your service and customers. The feeling amongst employees is that management cares more about the equipment then them.

    Pros

    The company provides some employees with good levels of career opportunity.

    Cons

    Top management has little or no understanding or appreciation of the work being performed in some functional areas, and they don't have the neccessary skills to understand or appreciate it. Of course they think they know, and they won't accept that they really don't. Top management do not seem qualified to hold the positions they do.

    Advice to Management

    Replace top management.
