    Ok company. Poor communication. Employees come second to stockholders

    Pros

    Employee stock purchase plan, decent benefits, decent pay. Not a bad work environment. Good products overall, especially if you are into optics, thermal imaging, etc.

    Cons

    Poor intra-company communication. Management promotes incompetents. Company caters to the stock holder above anything else. Employees come second.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on communication. Don't just talk about it—lead by example. Don't just send a company email. Talk to all your employees one-on-one and find out what they're thinking. Address employee concerns at meetings. Let employees know that their thoughts and concerns are being heard.

    Great Company with good products which really are needed in today's surveillance environment.

    Cons

    Many bureaucrats who really want to work for the USG, yet are able to sit back and manage to throw rocks at engineering, sales and others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    The cafe staff treat the temps better than anyone else.

    Cons

    I've never been treated so poorly by a company as a temporary employee. You say "Hi" or "Good Morning" and no one says anything back.
    I was told I would be given temporary to permanent opportunities, tuition reimbursement, and be a part of a team.
    You are treated as if you are dirt, and worthless. The people in my department actually have siad "Oh, USE her anywhere you need."
    You DON'T USE PEOPLE, even if they are temps. I will be graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in a year; you are no better than me.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear on what you are hiring for, and be clear that temps will not be included in company activities, picnics, even when someone brings a treat into the office, you are not allowed to have any of it.

    Pros

    Nice people and great customers make the work worthy. It was great making products that save lives. I'll miss the close connection with the customers.

    Cons

    Many talented people are left to stagnate in their jobs because some in management do not plan for away ahead for them. If you do a good job, some managers do not want to move you up because then they will have to replace you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff!
