I have been working at Extron Electronics full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There's overtime pay for some projects if you don't mind putting more working hours. As an engineer I still have to clock in/out. That's good and bad. Good thing is I just work the minimum 40 hrs/week most of the time. Bad thing is you are required to stay full 40 hrs/week. Luckily my boss is not picky on working hours.
Employees get 20% off dining at the ranch restaurant, owned and run by CEO/president.

Cons

pathetic benefits, even insulting for the Xmas "gift", max out at $150 pretax after 5 years. other than that nothing.
HR used to put "up to and including termination" at the end of every announcement.

    I have been working at Extron Electronics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    i can't think of one pro. it was difficult working there

    Cons

    They pay way lower than market median salary
    You will never get a raise more than 3%
    You will never got to become upper management unless you kiss few asses on the way there
    You have to "swipe" in and out and flexibility is not an option
    It is like a prison in there
    Can't voice new ideas. They get either rejected or stolen.
    HR is the boogeyman...or the boogeywomen in that sense!

    Pros

    Checks always cash, always hot coffee

    Cons

    slave drivers, long hours sometimes, no growth, antiquated technology, downward spiral, new HQ is an EGO trip for AE, waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
