    Pros

    It was close to home and great the great people I worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal with people that are the problem, not the ones reporting the problem.

    Pros

    Great company with good history and longevity in their respective markets. They still maintain the values established many years ago by the founder.

    Cons

    Some people in management need to take a step back and make way for the 21st century and realize the "Hay day" has gone, and markets are changing. Climb out from behind their desk and get a clue about what the markets are actually doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you have the right people in place that are qualified to do their part so everyone carries their own weight.

    I worked at Fike full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are generally supportive and caring, family is important. Most senior members are goal-driven and respectful.

    Cons

    Migrating between jobs is difficult, professional Improvement isn't a priority, misplaced elitism fosters an unwelcoming attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Minimum isn't sufficient, need to take on industry-wide practices in multiple disciplines.

    Great co-workers. No work appreciation

    Former Employee - Electrical Engineer in Blue Springs, MO
    Former Employee - Electrical Engineer in Blue Springs, MO

    I worked at Fike full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the co-workers are nice and go out of their way to help you. Family environment. Some projects were good to work on. Was able to work on the a wide breath which included interacting with certification engineers, customer support and sometimes customers themselves which gave a broader approach to design

    Cons

    Promotions are slow. Non-productive employees tend stick around and cause strain on your work sometimes. Don't bother putting in extra effort at job, it won't be recognized w.r.t pay, promotion or bonuses. Projects management was more of a start-up like. Business unit (domestic and international) integration was bad. Very little requirements from a technical perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize those who step up and work beyond their responsibilities to get the job done.

    It is easier to complain than find the good. Fike has outstanding good qualities and areas for improvement.

    Current Employee - Quality Assurance in Blue Springs, MO

    I have been working at Fike

    Pros

    Global client base makes a stable work environment in lean economic times. Growth opportunities available. A family business feel, but a professional attitude. Recognition of healthy year profit totals and other milestones.

    Cons

    Benefits are not as competitive as Management and HR believe them to be. Cost of living raises should be above increases in insurance benefit. Failure to terminate less effective employees, even when there is increased tension from the situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Huge strides have been made to improve short comings. Continue to value the employees and reward them honestly in benefits, fair salary and bonuses.
