    This is an amazing company period.

    Internal Communications (Former Employee)
    Cary, NC

    ProsThe people, work environment, pay, benefits, and wellness program.

    ConsThey need to work on recruiting new top talent, and appointing the right people into management. Managers should have more experience in their particular field before being promoted, or the repercussions are disastrous.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou're already moving in the right direction. I love this company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Must be a part of core team to have any input

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Cary, NC

    ProsVery profitable company in niche markets with large global presence. If you are looking for a nine to five job where your input isn't valued this is the company for you.

    ConsExecutive management is filled with introverts with huge egos. Employee input is not requested or safe to give. Diversity is minimal and kept in ranks with little input. It is part of managements strategy to continue with top down management with followers rather than future leaders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership issues now extend into the board so don't expect to see any changes going into the future. Consider changes at the top.

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

    Overall good company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey spend the money when needed, training is great. They seem to really want to invest in their employees.

    ConsThe technology used could be much smoother

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement dictates technology here. That shouldn't be the case. Allow your engineers to guide technology.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Cary, NC

    It used to be much better

    Technical Service (Current Employee)

    ProsInteresting work, good co-workers, good training, always given the tools to do the job, flexible schedule, strong knowledge depth among technical staff

    ConsMicro-management since the re-org in Sep. 2013, value selling philosophy, greedy, directive for annual price increases without cost justification, rely on a lot of tribal knowledge with poor documentation for technical aspects of products

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop looking for price increases to drive revenue, instead, push for growth into new markets and expand existing, begin preparing for the retirement of many of our lead scientists that will be taking knowledge of products with them when they retire.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrated with huge egos and false confidence in many areas

    Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee)
    Erie, PA

    ProsPay, benefits, training programs, and tons of meetings where nothing gets done

    ConsToo many chiefs, not enough indians. Outdated technology. Afraid of change. Everything is done with large meetings and committies. Drag out solutions. People with 20-30 years of experience may sound great but they are the ones that are most afraid of change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring sheep and get a few people who are not afraid of change.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Sr Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsChallenging work and diverse product offering

    ConsExecutives are control freaks. Poor communication from officers and director teams. Promotions are based on who you know and eat lunch with vs. actual performance or potential. Many managers are poor leaders and should be individual contributors

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace good ole boys club. Place female in as CEO and remove several poor directors and managers that have been put inlace after re-org

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fantastic Company

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Cary, NC

    ProsCollaborative, innovative. Employees have an open door policy and are very willing to collaborate. I had a fantastic experience while I worked there.

    ConsMay have to relocate to a new location unexpectedly for certain positions. Otherwise I cannot really think of any other issues.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
