    I have been working at e2v full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some very good employees, both loyal in service and very highly skilled - being the main reasons this company has done so well.
    Pension scheme matches your contributions up to 6% of salary.
    Full sick pay, 25 days holiday, generally flexible with working hours, free parking.

    Cons

    Very little incentive for self-improvement; many employees gain a huge amount of knowledge and skills and work very hard to support the company yet see their wages stagnate, often resulting in more dynamic staff leaving along with their skills.
    This also creates a situation where those with little ambition who simply want to 'tick over' in an undemanding job role for a mediocre salary stay for years.
    Company is very diverse in its product lines but has a culture where each engineering/manufacturing section seems like a separate company to all the others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The financial rewards for the highly skilled, loyal and dedicated staff that keep this company must be improved - they are being taken for granted!

    I worked at e2v full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The technology and work experience opportunities are excellent for younger engineering employees and starting salaries for graduates were competitive when I was there - mind you, they had to be in order to recruit any graduates each year!

    Cons

    Many of the 'time served' senior engineering staff were very unhappy with the way their salaries were being eroded with each new graduate intake each year. Senior professional engineering staff with over 15 years post graduate experience were typically earning only about 10 to 15% more than the incoming graduates and the gap was narrowing each year. Their skills had become quite specialised over the years with e2v, so their ability to 'up sticks' and move anywhere else in Essex was very limited - hence the Company was effectively and knowingly exploiting their situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given the frank disclosure of poor working conditions, product quality problems, poor financial rewards for senior engineering staff in R&D etc - one would think that the e2v management would 'wake up' and take positive action to put things right because e2v Customers AND Shareholders can also read all these revelations and maybe have second thoughts about doing business with or investing in such a poorly managed Company. Over to you Executive Management Team - if you do nothing - you will slowly move into decline and eventually lose all your fine salaries, perks and benefits !
