Take pride in products that save lives, flexible work schedule, good PTO accrual, relatively small company allows you to get to know everybody

No bonuses or raises in many years! Terrible health benefits. Desperately need more competent manufacturing engineers.

    I worked at Special Devices

    Pros

    Location of facility being in Arizona and close to my present home. Peers and subordinates were willing to work as a team. Flexibility in being able to perform engineering functions to get the job done.

    Cons

    Contract work. Was not given the opportunity to hire on full time. Lack of communication from upper management pertaining to role of engineer position in company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Due to the economic situation in the auto industry, Special Devices reduced it's work force to meet product demands and management has handled staffing resouces as required.
