Pros

Strong on teamwork and cross-functional support. Design engineering is both innovative and realistic. Operations works like an ISO 9001 company even though company is not ISO 9001.

Cons

Very few new products making it to the marketplace. Product direction is more by management dictates than well reasoned approach. Company is presently dependent on a few loyal customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Marketing and new marketing research at the company is weak. With senior staff, determine collectively what must happen to affect better research.

    Pros

    Time off allocation is nice for a new employee. Stock option plan is worthwhile. Engineering is king and appreciated. In-house cafeteria is a great deal!

    Cons

    Long term prospects are limited as they move their manufacturing off-shore to Asia. Internal movement is preferential by the upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at work experience and not just a degree! Upper management needs to get out of their offices more and walk around and get a feel of what the rank and file are doing and see how they perceive things.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules are a huge plus. There's never a problem with rearranging my schedule to meet my family needs. Great people who really know their stuff work here. The benefits package is really good too.

    Cons

    There aren't many opportunities for advancement. The review process is tedious. Hard work isn't always recognized on an individual level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work towards streamlining the review process. Stay on top of management to insure reivews are being given timely and are not extending a month or more beyond the given deadlines.
