    Pros

    The company has many good people who are conscientious about making sure good products are produced in a profitable fashion. It has a good owner who takes the long view and invests in the business. The work was interesting and meaningful. It is a solid business and is run professionally. It was a serious, but friendly environment. Management was very communicative about business performance and issues. Benefits were standard.

    Cons

    Sometimes insufficient time is allocated to complete projects properly, resulting in compromised implementations. Advancement opportunities within the company are limited, but do exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen and do good things.

    Pros

    Leadership has a great vision. Change is difficult, but the leadership is behind the change and works with employees to lessen the burden of change. Compensation is good for talented employees, and this company seeks nothing but talented employees. The atmosphere is very friendly, and the place feels like being with family.

    Cons

    Some pockets of leadership not on board with change and are not handled appropriately. Some lack of accountability creates friction at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership too focused on operational excellence. More attention to R&D and marketing will be needed to overcome upcoming business challenges.
