Industrial Designer (Former Employee) Morgan Hill, CA

ProsPotentially interesting product categories. On site food options, On site gym, road bike ride during lunch (longer lunch hour), Discounts on products.

ConsComplete lack of direction within departments. Limited to no reviews of status within department. No clear goals or guidance for employees. A very hire and fire culture constantly trying to keep up the insane margin demands.

Conservative and limited foresight into the potential of new concepts and directions. Limited to no research done with departments making for clouded and biased decisions.

Zero growth potential.

Road bike ride during lunch hours is limiting as there is pressure to be on the ride. Without other options (even biking options such as MTB) this practice is both alienating and ridiculous as it spurs on favoritism with departments.

Morgan Hill is not actually in the Bay Area. It is very very far from both San Francisco and Santa Cruz. Although it still comes with the high cost of living, however salaries are not adjusted for it.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to be a manager. Specialized is not a motivating place to be.

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