    Pros

    Nice facility, opportunity to work with people locally and internationally.

    Cons

    The company claims that it is a progressive one offering good benefits, competitive pay, training opportunities and career growth. Over the 6 years I worked there, the company said it couldn't afford to pay our earned merit increases for 3 of those years while the CEO received his, and compensation fell well below industry standards. Benefits only became more expensive each year, although they did contribute funds to your HSA to help. My management would not pay for the training opportunities that were available to me because they believed their current practices were satisfactory - innovation and risk taking were discouraged and you would get a slap on the hand if you made recommendations to senior management. Finally, unless you worked in Finance, management and HR were not interested in career planning or development. I watched dozens of talented college graduates leave the company over my 6 years there to work for a different company that was actually invested in their employees and developing talent for long-term growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're missing out on hard working, young talent. If you don't create a career development plan for college graduates, you will continue to lose them to competitors who will actually help them grow in their careers.

    Pros

    Very large company with a lot of world wide influence. Salaries are generally good.

    Cons

    In general people are not treated very well. Benefits, specifically insurance, for a company this size are not good. Very large turnover rate a the facility I worked at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your people, you say they are your most valuable asset yet you treat them as second class citizens. Your turnover rate should give a clue that you have a problem

    Pros

    One of the biggest pros to the company is company match 401k and pension.

    Cons

    Just speaking on my personal experiences. I have to participate in an on call rotation every two week. I have an hour response time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to pay more attention to our customers and make more visits to establish a relationship with them.

    Pros

    Senior Leadership has a great pipeline of New Technology. Collegues are nice people.

    Cons

    While I did not earn a promotion or lateral transfer; I did far too little networking. My fifth manager gave everyone in our group perfectly average evaluations on every criteria. The other 4 managers were great. I challenged the average rating to no avail. Nine months later I got a reduction in force. Choose your battles, wisely!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a manager gives everyone perfectly average ratings, it is a red-flag the manager may not be engaged.
