Pros

A small company with very interesting products and strong growth potential. Kayex is located close to RIT and the U of R which could provide great oppertunities for employee growth. This is seldom utilized and not generally encouraged. The company is owned by a large conglomerate which means that plenty of resources are available in good market conditions. It has yet to be seen how much energy will be devoted to the company if a slack in demand occurs. The product is interesting and driven by demand for solar products. Kayex therefore has great potential for success, but in an unproven market.

Cons

Unstructured atmosphere. Promotion is unattainable except in rare circumstances. Engineers are treated as a commodity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the strength of your engineering teams. Learn how to focus on multiple disciplines and give a definite path to promotion.
