I have been working at Mechdyne full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Mechdyne has some really innovativeand technical people. Previously the focus was on delivering high end and complex AV systems but the scope has broadened to general AV and enterprise wide technologies. Mechdyne is seeing substantial growth particularly in the Oil and Gas Market as customers are looking for higher quality and well supported systems. Its good to have readily accessible support within the company to assist with customer concerns in both IT and AV.
All systems are fully staged and tested prior to being delivered so there is a noticeable difference in quality for customers and less stress onsite for the team.

Cons

Headquartered in Iowa and really the center of the Mechdyne world. Not as large as the big AV companies who can receive larger discounts from manufacturers and sometimes offer lower prices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue with the strategy of putting the customer first. Mechdyne's values are the core of our identity and earn respect in the industry.
Further investment in regional offices to service customers would help minimize costs.

    I worked at Mechdyne full-time

    Pros

    - The people are great
    - Excellent benefits. Health and dental are very good and are very inexpensive
    - Generous profit sharing, 401K
    - The work is challenging
    - Recognized and rewarded for hard work
    - Work is varied, no day is the same

    Cons

    - Software division is in VA Beach, and can feel disconnected from the main HQ in Iowa.
    - Questionable long term growth options up to and above Sr level developer
    - Work can be very difficult, and customers demands can be unrealistic
    - Customer needs/requests drive development, so the long term vision for the product(s) is sometimes unclear
    - Travel is frequent and typically on short/no notice
    - Base salary is below market average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Plan installations/travel better to avoid long days on client site
    - Develop a deeper backlog of product features/enhancements so customer demands don't drive development
    - Realize that it is OK to say "no" to the customer. Customers are often wrong.

    Pros

    This is a company who truly lives out their core values and it is refreshing to see in today's society. Great to feel you are contributing to the company and working with all levels of teammates in the company. Benefits, profit sharing, and 401k are great. Mechdyne also has monthly socials for teammates where they recognize the good things going on in the company and teammates who are performing well.

    Cons

    Can sometimes feel stretched thin during busy times.
