I have been working at MTS Systems

Pros

Good benefits, good people, interesting products, pretty good track for promotion, easy to move to other positions in the company, not too high pressure or stressful, flexible schedules

Cons

slightly below average pay, pretty dependent on a slumping automotive industry, office gossip, as a developer who works almost exclusively alone on projects it makes it difficult to gather new technical skills and development ideas that one would normally acquire through working together with a group of developers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

do a better job of working with customers in new markets to develop testing methods that they need to grab a new market share, clean up the technical support structure

    Pros

    Smaller company so you get exposed to a lot. Not a lot of rules.

    Cons

    Micromanagement in some departments. Lack of vacation time. Too much doomsday talk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't bring up layoffs at every meeting or how bad the economy is. Trust your employees - get out of their way. Focus on growing the business instead of micromanaging the inside!
