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.

    ESI still has potential, but it needs to place higher value on it's best employees.

    Pros

    Compensation & benefits are reasonable for this industry.

    Cons

    Very little job security in a downside market. Be prepared to be laid off (no matter what your level of seniority).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think nearly all the senior managers are all intimidated by the type of leadership of the CEO and therefore are afraid to confront him with innovative or different business strategies.
