    Pros

    The company has many incredible people working for it and the technology is amazing. The work is varied and is rarely boring

    Cons

    The company is quickly becoming a victim of its own success by outgrowing their ability to serve their customers. Because every division is understaffed employees are being required to do superhuman efforts just to keep the customer's tools up and running.Because of this, salaried employees are regularly forced into working ridiculous overtime that they are not compensated or rewarded for in any way. The concept of work life balance does not exist.

    It is a very political place to work, with battles between departments, divisions and geographic regions. Middle management has rarely been trained how to develop and get the most out of their employees. As a result, high quality employees are left stranded with nowhere to go but out. Career advancement is by and large impossible.

    Advice to Management

    FEI has the potential to be an amazing place to work. Staff appropriately and invest in the company infrastructure so that people can spend less time firefighting, and more time preventing those fires in the first place.
