    Pros

    Very "human" environment. Most Management, including Executive team value work/life balance and provide flexibility. Interesting technology to work with. Pay is very fair for size, expectations

    Cons

    Tries to do take on too many product development opportunities even when ROI is small or even negative just to please OEM customers. This results in resources being spread too thin. Some "dead weight" that is not addressed. Multiple projects in development often overlap and demand shared resources at the same time due to lack of unified/comprehensive Project Management planning.

    Advice to Management

    Be "crisper" on where you are spending and investing. Implement more disciplined product portfolio and Project Management.

    Pros

    Laid back env, OK compensation package, good technology, smart set of engineers but not well motivated, seems like a good place for retirement.

    Cons

    Top heavy, lack of vision/execution, too many decision makers but too few who can make a decision. No bonus to employees (only directors and above qualify for a bonus).

    Advice to Management

    Invest in future, and share the profit with ALL the employees. No company can succeed with out a vision. FC revenue can not feed you for ever!

    Great co-workers that will always help you out regardless of department.

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of you.
