Pros

Flexible work schedules and attire. Pay was good but medical benefits and 401k matching suffer more and more every year.

Cons

A little too quick to judge and terminate. It was a very sad day for me as I had made many friends there and was terminated for something that should have warranted nothing more than a written warning.

Advice to Management

Less micro managing and more attention to detail outside the offices of the managers. This company also reacts rather than pre acts to last minute or unexpected situations.

    Pros

    Casual work environment. Flexible schedule. PTO accrual. Teamwork.

    Cons

    Long hours-- it is uncommon to work a 40 hr. week. Supervisors are not formally trained in management so their leadership skills are lacking. CEO has taken away all incentives. Overworked and unperpaid. Almost impossible TAT on samples. Ridiculous backlog. Benefits are lacking. Office politics are shady. Burn out is unavoidable.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your employees are tired and stressed. Help out more. Give back incentives and form a better benifits package. Increase base pay.
