    I have been working at Unigen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Impressive manufacturing facility, capacity, and equipment in the Fremont location. Extensive expansion of more facilities occurring in Vietnam and other parts of Asia. Willingness to spend money is evident to support customer requirements that make sense.

    Cons

    This company has had product stolen by armed robbers twice, the most recent time was spring 2011 by a dozen or so people! Security was weak and the robbers took advantage of that.
    Stunning lack of leadership and business strategy by the owners of the company has cultivated a culture of independent workers. There are missing leadership positions, especially in engineering, and thus communication to employees is weak. Product development roadmap plans are not unified with input from the team. Individual contributors make input and it is not discussed amongst the team. No participation in trade shows does not help promote the company in the industry. The company revenue is mostly as a CM build partner vs. shipment of their own products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and pay for strong leadership in key roles to define the company product strategies and then staff properly. Delegate some aspects of leadership to VP and Director level management so they will provide working level leadership and product development plans. Have clear direction on what the objectives and direction of the company are.

    Pros

    Get to work with some interesting specialized products, CEO has great strategic business partners and connections. There are some employees in the company that are very knowledgeable and valuable.

    Cons

    Some bad apples in the bunch. Morale isn't very high overall. Some products on the roadmap don't make sense, and there is no one to lead the direction of the roadmap products. A lot of time and money is wasted due vacancies in engineering leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good leadership and morale are vital for the well being of the company. Team building and technical training are beneficial in the long run, no matter how busy the company is as a whole.
