Pros

Can be good to build resume for less experienced professionals.

Cons

It is a very sales and margin driven at the cost of other key things. Systems and technology are Old and antiquated. Employees are not seen as an asset.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your employees. Don't manage by exception.

    Pros

    Heavy work load structure forces individual to quickly learn how to prioritize and resolve conflicts.
    Constant Feedback about ones performance (please see cons)
    Tons of opportunities to participate and gain experience in Kaizens (see cons)

    Cons

    Focuses primarily on negative feedback - no what you are doing wrong but never know what you are doing right.
    Kaizens are held twice a month - looks like having a kaizen for the sake of having a kaizen
    Focuses to much on little things and not enough on the big winners
    No definition to roles and responsibilities
    only rewards those with certain degrees
    unrealistic stretch target oriented

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really want to retain associates and keep turn over low, provide bettr incentives, keep conflict manageable, establish explicit and realistic expectations. Be more careful with objectives, you will drive the wrong behavior from your employees.

    Pros

    Plenty of equipment and lab space.
    Coworkers and immediate supervisor are supportive. Enjoyable atmosphere, great interface to engineering team. Always have time to answer questions and explain things.

    Cons

    Scheduling of testing is hectic and ill planed. Senior management is a joke. MBA’s cycling through the machine that is Veeder-root. I never knew who was vice president from one week to the next. They ship senior management in from other divisions. No internal promotion for senior positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to your jobs for more that 18 months
