    Pros

    No micro managing, you are enabled to do your job
    Progressive and interesting product
    Lot's of great co-workers
    Not a large company, but global so you get access to different ways of doing things

    Cons

    Lot's of change at executive level, so it's tough to get traction on your projects
    Communication challenges up the ladder and between departments
    Globalizing is a little painful, but then again it usually is!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees to communicate
    Minimize the executive turnover

    Pros

    At the present moment it's hard to say.

    Cons

    It used to be a place where you had fun, built cool stuff and were changing the world. Basically one new product in the last few years. Government money going away and over the years have really done nothing to get military robots retasked and into other markets. The forward looking vision was lacking in this realm. The fun is gone, more or less maintaining the status quo. Layoffs one day and a party the next. Not a formula for cutting costs in my eyes. No communication as to where the company is going, at least not down to the frogs in the pond level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People will go above and beyond if they believe is something. There is no clear path that is visible to those doing the work.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
