Opportunities to move between business units enabling diverse experiences.

Currently transitioning the business emphasis toward new technologies through acquisition of small leading edge companies.

Advice to Management

Keep your eyes on the future, but be careful not to turn your back on the customers that are providing your current operational base...even as their significance in the future will be less prominent.

    Pros

    Great benefits including 401K with matching contributions up to 4% of salary, modified time, overtime for salaried at straight time for hours over 40.

    Flexible, no rigid start and end of workday time.

    Reliable source of employment for past 10+ years. Stability not highly dependent on stock price.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy, hard to get anything done which wears on you.
    Lots of people in higher positions in large part because of advanced degree, not because of experience or merit.
    Small annual raises for most people.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate clique culture. have managers that are true managers not engineers 90% of their time and managers only 10%.
