    Pros

    Benefits are good. Insurance is good and there is a pension program. Big discounts at playing golf at Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities not what they said it would be. Company as a whole is technologically slow. Compensation is not the best.

    Pros

    I worked as a co-op for 7 months, gaining invaluable experience in product development. - excellent, passionate co-workers - strong team environment - superb company golf discounts

    Cons

    - being family owned, projects are typically forward thinking and therefore slow-paced - business sets over-ambitious goals for sales, therefore significant improvement is still marred - stuck in the not-so-bustling metropolis of Sheboygan, WI

    Advice to Management

    Express more interest in hearing from project teams, not just their project leads, or leaders of project leads.

    Pros

    Good associates, beautiful facilities, best intentions. Great public / customer rapport. Nicely located and lots of golf and beaches near there.

    Cons

    Less than ideal development process, don't always achieve the best end result. Really have an excellent impression until you start to peel the onion. I've seen more nervous wrecks in this place than anywhere I've worked. Very high turn over of the good ones.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and rehire the good ones, lol.
