I have been working at Samtec

Pros

Flexibility in work hours & benefits, open communication from management, actual bonus is generous, workforce retention is admirable given economic conditions

Cons

Compensation plan can be mysterious, certain management is unclear and does not demonstrate clear direction, satellite offices or facilities feel secluded or isolated

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up open communication and establish clear goals for lower-level management, remove compensation plan reference as bonus pay when it's not (at times)

    I have been working at Samtec

    Pros

    Great shift. Three days a week plus mandatory overtime.

    Pay is decent.

    Atmosphere is laid back and friendly among coworkers.

    Cons

    Promotions are based on who you know. Not merit, seniority or any other reasonable basis.

    Management doesn't appreciate or care about how the decisions they make impact lower employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your workers more.

    Provide opportunities for employees to move within the company for people who aren't part of the "family".

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great. Benefits are good. Teamwork is excellent and they have a lot of nice, intelligent people working for them.

    Cons

    Management performs poorly at this company. You almost forget they exist they have such little involvement with you. The only time you have real interaction is with an occasional evaluation that is written by people that have never worked with you.
    No real growth or advancement opportunities.
    Money is the bottom line here. They outsource a lot of their positions to other countries because it is significantly cheaper and they use their college interns to do professional level work for very meager pay then boot them out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more involvement with your employees, get to know them.
    You need to find another way to evaluate employees, having them done by people who have no real knowledge of the employee is unprofessional.
