Pros

Well run, steady growth and improvement in products. Good work-life balance. Lots of flexibility to create your own job and take on new responsibilities. Keith Jackson is a great evolutionary CEO who likes to make good incremental improvements in the company and is pursuing growth through acquisition.

Cons

Lack of cutting-edge products, long development times, there can be a lot of office politics, especially in Phoenix. The company is relatively cheap with expenditures and forced vacation and salary cuts are very common. (This could be a positive for shareholders, not so much for employees.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide substantial monetary incentives to each employee in the product development chain to lower the average cycle time of their part of the design cycle.

    Pros

    Highly knowledgeable engineering groups willing to help and teach new hires. Company looks good to the board and shareholders on paper.

    Cons

    Micro management inhibits individual and group projects/ideas to reach full potential. Mid level management lacks ability to properly repesent group and shows favoritism towrad certain and ironically incompetent individuals. Does not appropriately credit those who go the extra mile. No advancement within company, upper mamnagement does not provide incentive to lift morale. Mid managment does not properly harness the the quality of the groups' work to leverage the group's significance/viability. 3 years of being forced to zero vacation hours and furlough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your heads out realize that the quality is here in the states not overseas. Promote within offer perks that will lift morale. Stop acquisitions at the expense of forced vacation and furlough time.

    Pros

    -If you are 55 and above it is a great place to work because:
    1. Most people are not held accountable
    2. There are probably greater number of slackers than you
    3. Lay offs have reduced in the recent yrs
    4. Good bloated pay checks
    5. Company is surviving because of a few top quality engineers

    Cons

    1. Unqualified people are promoted, making the middle-level management extremely weak
    2. Ass-kissing is a must. If you don't chances are there is no career advancement
    3. Abuse of authority by people who should not have it in the first place
    4. In order to get promoted, one has to be part of the good ol' boy network
    5. Company is so busy with acquisitions they are forgetting to improve in-house existing talent
    6. People do not work as a team or towards a common goal because every employee is rated against others when it comes to performance evaluations (old motorola methods)
    7. Good talent is not appreciated or rewarded (excepting people who follow con #2 mentioned here)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Value your engineers
    2. Promote Innovation
    As for the rest of the cons mentioned above.....good luck improving those..!!!
