Middle Career Employer

Project Engineer (Current Employee)
Zeeland, MI

I have been working at Gentex (Michigan) full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe old values and culture.
Great bunch of employees.
Being intrusted to perform your job duties with minimal supervision.

ConsHalf of the mid/upper-managers are not qualified.
Frequent management changes.
Frequent structural changes.
No longer living up to the purported values.
Purging of competent people after 8+ years of experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the managers put into place due to politics and return to the core values that used to guide the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Gentex (Michigan) full-time for more than 10 years


Pros: Flexible working environment that allows for telecommuting as needed. Company offers an impeccable support to provide you the necessary tools to do your job.… Cons: Fast paced and high demand comes at a cost to the employees with continuous push for more throughput which many times mean more work hours.… Advice to Senior Management: A lean mentality is a good thing but when it shifts below the mark, employees are heavily burdened and throughput suffers. This often leads… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
