Pros

Small teams. Team members treated well. Cool hardware technology at times. Goal of quality, even if goal isn't always met. Developers treated as authority.

Cons

Warned when I started that they ran a rotating door of employees. I was cut after 3rd layoff in 2 years. Win a state lottery - hire. Lose a state lottery - fire. Shop is packed with politics and in-house backstabbing. Experience soured one coworker so dramatically that he moved out of the country to escape "evil" companies.

Advice to Management

Shoot straight with people and hire contractors. Calm the infighting and politics. Value should represent ability and not who likes you.

    Pros

    Interesting Industry. The warehouse is fun to walk through and take guests on tours.
    Good people work there. Good benefits, technology is up to date and the lunch hour is near good places to eat. Some of the people have worked there for a long time.

    Cons

    Long drive unless you live in the area. The chemical smell from the plant is pretty hard to get used to and you think about if that is good to breath in all day. The security is pretty severe, most doors have badge access, so if you forget your badge, it's a nice wait in security to get cleared.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the old fashioned parties and let people drink.

    Pros

    Good work / life balance

    Cons

    Poor communication among EEs. Every changing atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Get a plan and execute it! Communicate better overall instead of just when an upper level employee is introduced or someone in upper management resigns.
