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 Management

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.

    Pros

    They're not many. Terrific people work for Mechdyne. The technology is very interesting

    Cons

    I have never seen leadership as poor as at Mechdyne. Ego's seem to drive decisions regardless of results. They talk constantly about being a team but only look after a few insiders. Due to this leadership the company is shrinking very quickly and is now very weak financially. If you join sales be prepared to take direction from engineers without no real sales skills. Salespeople are not trusted unless they have been with Mechdyne for quite sone time and have an engineering degree. Almost all of the leadership has worked only for Mechdyne - so they have no exerience to rely on.

    Advice to Management

    Hire an experienced consultant with proven success growing technology companies through strong technical skills and professional sales.
