    Pros

    Good leadership and great management.
    Many opportunities to advance career.
    Competitive pay with many options for additional bonuses and profit sharing with good company performance.

    Cons

    The consistent upgrade of manufacturing processes and the drive to continually improve quality can lead to very long hours. It is not for the faint of heart.
    As with many larger companies, the red tape to get anything done can be daunting.

    Pros

    Great benefits, bonuses and pay. Really geared to the Shift 1 people. There is a nice free drink and free fruit program.

    Cons

    12 hr days in a bunny suit is draining and then the outside of job stuff makes ( All the AR's and TCR's , improvements, Meetings, doing engineering work and items like that) it a long day. As a Tech you get assign may things that really are outside your job title. Many ( not all) of the Engineers @ F 17 do not leave there cubes and have very little knowledge of the tools set and what areas they own..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Techs should have input on engineers reviews, a good Tech Engineer relationship is very important.
