I worked at Laird Technologies

Pros

It depends on locations. Generally, co-workers are very nice, willing to help.
Used to have a very good line of products, with leading position in business.

Cons

It seems that top management focus is just to make corp market's performance look good. The business strategy and technology development plan to stay on top is not quite clear, or not well communicated to each level.
There have been a lot of org changes over past a few years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need a visionary leader, and a good business strategy, and let people know that you have the plan, and it works.

    Pros

    Great products and a great crew that produces the products.

    Cons

    Communication is invisible to most associates. Though there are associate update meetings, most associates still have no clue what is going on. Upper management makes horrible decisions. Making the sales dollars is all they care about. Management will bend any rule they can, strectch employees to impossible limits, and do whatever it takes to meet their sales numbers at all costs. Poor leadership apprears to be tolerated and is the acceptable norm at Laird. Biggest con: Laird's HR team is the most inept and uncaring HR team I have ever seen. They could care less about the committed employees that work for the company. They only look out for upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place a little more value on your workers. You are the only people at Laird that receive a bonus. Why don't you divide up your hefty annual bonus and share it with your production workers that are making low wages?

    Pros

    On site cafe, very nice co-workers

    Cons

    Management is of a different breed. If you have any self confidence, don't come work at Laird. Management will do it's best to strip you of it. Please, don't even consider going to Human Resources in an attempt to make things right. They belong to the same club and you will be signing off on your soon to be termination. Many people have tried. Try to get out with what dignity you have left, put Laird behind you and move on as if it was just a nightmare from the past!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Laird has Tremendous opportunities, potential, and a few non-managers left that still care. Why don't you consider your mission as "accomplished" and move far, far away and get a job managing a bunch of self-loathing Hippocrates that would welcome you with open arms and become part of a pitiful pack of back-stabbing bullies that enjoy hostility in the workplace! If you did this, sooner than later, Laird just might soar and become everything it's current management has prevented it from being. As far as Human Resources go. WARNING! OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR! Grow a conscience already and stop playing GOD! You are not good at it at all. It might not be too late for redemption!
