I have been working at Phoenix Contact full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great Team environment to work in and accomplish professional goals
Highly ethical at all levels of the organization
friendly, relaxed atmosphere
talented, interesting co-workers

Cons

Privately held so lacking some perks of larger, public companies but this is outweighed by the entrepreneurial spirit and not having to run the business to please a public board of directors and making all decisions based on the bottom line.

    I worked at Phoenix Contact as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere
    Very employee oriented company
    US President and upper management are very down-to-earth
    No hesitation in buying materials and equipment as needed

    Cons

    Lower paying than most engineering internships
    Hiring process for full-time positions is very drawn out
    Not really any other major drawbacks; corporate culture and awesome attitude of coworkers make the cons negligible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the hiring process used to place interns in full time positions and offer more competitive pay.

    Phoenix Contact is overall a nice company to work for if you are OK with no upward mobility.

    I have been working at Phoenix Contact

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. Office atmosphere is fantastic.

    Cons

    Absolutely no where to go-. It's great if you come in young or your OK with the status quo, they would be happy for you to stay as a product manager forever--so good stability, but someone like myself, is totally bored and obvious there is no place to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those that exceed expectations year after year. BESIDES Presidents club. It's nice but would prefer promotion, increased job responsibilities, higher salary.
