Electrical test engineer working with RF, analog, digital and automation.

Electronics Engineer (Former Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

ProsLarge company with stability. Politically correct. Lots of opportunities for growth. I have enjoyed working with almost everyone there. They have always tried to treat me fairly.

ConsThey eliminated their pension plan for new hires and replaced it with 401K participation. The last couple of years, they have hired a lot of people in anticipation of contracts. They lost several key contracts and had a 5% reduction of force. I was laid off just short of retirement.

Advice to Senior ManagementLay off those who fail to contribute before you lay off contributing members. You have a lot of solid performers who are really nervous.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
