Pros

Great culture, employees are treated well; there's space for discussion and senior management is really close to the employees and very available. Salary and benefits are second to none and profit is shared fairly.

Very good internal relations between groups.

Cons

Pace may be slower than other companies and growth limited but the goals are long terms and not immediate gratification. Company is somewhat older than others but younger workers are coming in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Organic growth alone may be hard to achieve; need to diversify more.

    Pros

    Colleagues in the work place are skilled, competent and dedicated.

    Cons

    Mid level managers are snakes; do not take disagreement well and respond vindictively to people they don't like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the people who get the work done while the mid levels are flying around the world.

    Pros

    Freedom to learn and grow inside career. Great education opportunities Overall a great company. Great products and a real desire to be honest in everything they do. (Very different then other high tech compaines)

    Cons

    Far too much travel, 100% plus Sun-Fri normal. 16 hour days normal. Hard to take a vacation. Vacation tops out at 4 weeks, health insurance is very expensive, very expensive. I have had to hire someone to do almost everything around my house because of being gone so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people or pay people in reflection to the amount of time they are gone from home
