I have been working at Elma Electronic

Pros

Elma is a very stable company. Management does not likely to take big risks, they aim for very consertive growth. Most Employees have worked here for more than ten years. So Job security is probably the best reason to work here.
The market they are in is a very niche market, there are a handful of competitors out there, but most are smaller and not doing as well. Elma is a recognizable name in the industry and people who work in the industry tend to stay in it.
Benefit for Elma is also very good for a small company. You get 15 days of vacation from the start, vs. 10 days for other small companies.

Cons

Elma Electronic does not offer stock options like other Bay area companies, this is a big down side here in the bay area when your peers and friends are getting big money from stock options.
There really is not a career path laid out for employees. People have to work their ass off for over 15 years get promoted to a higher position, and usually that's because their manager has left or retired. Otherwise you are stuck with the 3% salary raises every one to two years. This is slower than the rate of inflation here in the bay area

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management should focus on the core strength of Elma Electronic and its niche market place leadership.

    Pros

    Stable company, not so much pressure, and they tend to do business on its bottom line. I like working at the company due to flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Expect 3% increase per year or sometimes no increase whether you excel or not so much. The salary increase is not even comparable to inflation rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should focus on maximizing potential of each employee along with recognition. It is difficult to encourage employees to maximize its full potential if recognition can't keep-up.
