Overall positive with exciting and challenging projects

Reliability Engineer (Former Employee) Camarillo, CA

ProsProjects and work was exciting and challenging. Great commitment to quality and defect resolution.

ConsUpper management seems to be sluggish in responding to fluctuations in the market. Myopic approach in decision making when they closed down the test lab in Camarillo CA.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet up a satellite test facility in the SouthWest, where you can perform sufficient project evaluations and research.

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