    Pros

    Actually get to see the final product function. Working with LEDs in its variety of shapes and colors is interesting.

    Cons

    Little room for growth. Communication challenges with employees exists because they are stationed across the globe. Supply chain challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Have closer interaction with engineers. Find out what are the critical challenges are and list them in order of importance. Once identified, use a team effort to collectively solve that challenge before moving onto the next one. If this is not possible .. tackle the two most critical challenges by devoting a team of engineers to one and another group to another.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Nepitism is prevelant and needs to stop. Need qualified experienced management to oversee China operations - today they are negatively impacting the growth of the company. Boston employees have given up on the Executive staff in California and don't see a positive future for the company. Customers are growing impatient and are not being communicated with.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time listening to your employees and take immediate action to resolve critical matters or this company will not succeed in this competitive market.

    Pros

    cutting edge tech, still some highly talented people there to learn from/with, nice office in Billerica, easy schedule of 9-5, for a long time I had a great boss to learn from and a good group to work with and get support from

    Cons

    no promotions, raises, murky future, underpaying employees, poor office in Woburn, poor interoffice communication, glass ceiling, refuse to fill positions where people have left, more responsibility does not lead to more $

    Advice to Management

    go back to China

    Pros

    Fellow coworkers are at the top of their respective fields. Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    No work-home life balance. No recognition for loyalty or hard work. Too many middle-management members that won't do what they consider menial tasks, but the administrative support staff keeps getting laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that you need administrative support or require your middle-management members to pick up the slack.
