    I worked at Ferno-Washington

    Pros

    Young group of motivated engineers. People are nice.
    Cool products, state of the art ambulance cots.
    Good hardware and software. Latest 3D CAD, 3D printer.
    Engineers did get a raise dispite company-wide no raise policy.
    Everyone in the company receives a bonus based on company's performance. (over 5% my 2 years)

    I left the company on May 13th to move back to my hometown for my wife's job, otherwise I would still be working here. Another review seems to be pretending to me and is much more negative than I am, probably a disgruntled current or former employee.

    Cons

    Company is in the middle of nowhere.
    Engineering area needs renovated. (Supposed to be happening in the near future)
    1 hour+ commute from Columbus, Cincy, or Dayton
    45+ hours a week expected, but I never worked more than 45 and was not penalized.
    Salary seemed competitive, but I received at 10k+ raise with better benefits upon leaving.
