    I have been working at LeCroy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are very friendly The management is generally very understanding

    Cons

    It is not the most stable place to be in. Lay-offs happen more frequently than I'd like to see, but I am in IT so i see all of them not just my department.

    I worked at LeCroy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice gym, BBQs on summer, nice 401k, you have the chance to apply for a tuition reimbursement and overall easygoing people.

    Cons

    Poor management, they can tell you everything is fine and be fire the next week. The layoffs are a constant, all over the company. There was a time when it had really smart people working there. Top of the line products and brilliant ideas on process. But sadly almost all that is gone. There is a merit philosophy based on how friendly you are with the upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more engineers that have either a degree or at least experience on the field. Stop wasting money on fancy cars for upper management if there production line will be reduce and more than 5 workers will be fire.

    I have been working at LeCroy full-time

    Pros

    some advanced technology, has a gym, people are friendly, and a nice walking path.

    Cons

    layoffs are constant and are lied about. R&D is being slashed and the company survives by buying up smaller more successful ones to hide the fact that no one is buying the products. Senior staff is stuck in their ways, no new ideas at all. zero chance for promotion. Company is basically dead and right now senior staff is trying to see how much they can get out of the corpse. In the past years alone there has been a layoff each and every quarter, all but 2 were disguised as "letting contractors go", consolidating into one location, etc.

    Advice to Management

    stop laying people off every 3 months. Invest in a new product line. Stop wasting money on fancy laptops, gym, company outings, buying fancy cars for upper management, weekly catered BBQs, etc.

    I have been working at LeCroy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They tend to hold on to their engineers for a long time. Many of the people there have been there for 5+ or 10+ years. There are people from all over the world. There are opportunities to take on more responsibility for engineers.

    Cons

    The business is pretty cut and dry and there's not much room for innovation. If a person does leave, his job usually seems to get spread among remaining employees instead of finding a replacement.

    Advice to Management

    I dislike the week long shutdowns where employees are required to use their paid vacation at a certain time. This has been done with little warning in the past in order to save the company money, but it really just takes the money from the employees.

    I worked at LeCroy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked here for almost three years - loved the flexibility, independence, and met some really great people here.

    Cons

    Since the Teledyne acquisition in 2012, administrative 'red-tape' for all processes has become quite cumbersome. Not sure if it's the ERP system or management, but getting through the red-tape has become so difficult that it's difficult to keep up with your daily workload. I believe engineers get treated fairly well, in terms of compensation, etc. - but if you're working in any non-engineering other department, the workload is definitely not commensurate with the salary & so-called "raises" they offer.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems to value its employees in terms of how long someone has been at a company. Even if you generate twice as much productivity as an employee who's been there twice as long as you have, you will NEVER get the compensation / recognition simply for the fact that you haven't put in the time with the company. Not very encouraging for newer employees, and doesn't leave much of an incentive for existing employees to work hard either, if they'll be compensated just as much as the next guy for putting in twice the effort.
