    I worked at InFocus as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Was able to learn a new system and receive experience within the electronics industry. Created more connections within the transportation industry. In this respect, being a contractor for InFocus was a positive experience.

    Cons

    The culture within InFocus was the worst I've ever experienced though out my 20+ years in the transportation industry. Very few employees had anything positive to say about InFocus which was unfortunate as there are some great people within the company. Even when I was advised my contracted was ending I was told I was lucky to get out. I was told employees who had worked for InFocus for 10 years or longer were considered as "dinosaurs". Later I understood why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to work on building a positive culture within InFocus. From my personal experience, I became very unsure of my day to day actions as my manager created serious doubt and no since of direction as to what needed to be accomplished. On several occasions I was informed I had information only to find out I didn't. In certain cases, I was even told not to call our vendors as all the information I needed was within "Sharepoint". Overall, InFocus Sr. Management is only concerned about reducing costs and not providing a healthy work experience for it employees. I helped reduced transportation costs significantly and once this was accomplished my contracted was ended.

    I worked at InFocus

    Pros

    Depends on which dept. you work for, if you're in CSS, be to pull your hair out sometime, but the benifit package is excellent.

    Cons

    you will never know who's going to get the pink/yellow card next because it's shrinking faster than you can look for the next job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you cut corner and try to save money by using cheaply made parts from China you will not win customer's loyalty in the long run.

    Pros

    there are a lot of Good People to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    Salary includes variable component, for everyone.
    Top Managment does not have clear direction and changes focus often. Almost running company with knee jerk reactions..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on our core offering. Wait for a plan to yield a return and stop making changes.

    I worked at InFocus

    Pros

    Good benefits, and lots of vacation days.

    Cons

    The company is top heavy with senior management based on the size of the company. Many employees had been there for quite some time and had a sense of entitlement. They had a hard time adjusting to layoffs, budget cuts, friends leaving the company, etc. Each and every time they would say, "That's not the way we do it at InFocus". Never realizing that the company had been losing money for years ~ the old ways of thinking were not working anymore...No one was ever interested in hearing any new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Determine actionable business plans each season and stick to them. Make the sales team accountable for profitability within their accounts.

    I worked at InFocus

    Pros

    location was great. Wilsonville was a lovely place. junior associates were great as well. history was bad and success had come easily. no ability to see the future and plan for it

    Cons

    bad business. economically impossible to make money with cost structure, and inability to change cost structure. poor leadership by kyle, who was in it for himself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    best thing to do was to go private. but long term, still cannot see it making money. brand continues to erode
