    Pros

    FLIR does make some interesting products

    Cons

    In lieu of building a strong company and product base, the focus here is always on this quarter's results. This is even if the next 3 quarters are negatively impacted or long-time customers are alienated.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Ability to work with some very talented individuals on interesting products.

    Cons

    Low morale, poor comms/co-operation at management and department levels, which is below the standards of a company of this size and capability. Lacking resources in some key areas, which is causing frustration and stress. From a local level, HR seems unsympathetic towards employees, incompetent and is neither energizing nor inspiring.

    Advice to Management

    Review resource allocations within the corporation. Improve the dynamics of the company and management. Improve the culture of the organisation.

    Pros

    Very talented employees, astute management, good diversification of core product strength into various business units.

    Cons

    Becoming more "corporate" - a positive for company growth - can lessen the communication from leadership which can be frustrating to some employees.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure more communication from corporate to allow all employees to understand (in as much as possible) company direction.

    Pros

    good pay and benefits. medical dental 401K matching. with plenty of paid days off. some promotions available. good work environment, and great people to work with.

    Cons

    company is very bureaucratic. FLIR likes to hire family of management and dismiss veteran employees who know their jobs. Management really needs to realize that lower level employees matter also. If you are not part of the managers social group you won't get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your seasoned employees better than the relatives just out of college that you hire.
