Waiting for the other shoe to drop

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Planar Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexible schedule, decent PTO (though not accrued), well-known company, interesting products

ConsCronyism, lack of effective management, sailing without a rudder, not many perks left except for paycheck

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's too late for advice - they need to vacate. Keeping home theater division this long has become the albatross around Planar's neck. Besides layoffs, not sure if activist investor can help to right this sinking ship...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Miserable

I worked at Planar Systems
