    10 years in electronics

    Quality Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Budapest, MO

    ProsYou are never bored. Good performance resulting in promotions. Management is open for suggestions. Training opportunities available.

    ConsIf you are not in the "inner circle" you can easily be the first to be fired during a headcount cut independently of your performance, this is mainly relevant at leader levels. In case of an average employee it is based on real performance. Working environment is not always good in all offices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLessons learned never identified from business fails. No real benchmark why no more business can be reached.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
