    Pros

    People are great to work with and easy going. Great environment and a lot of opportunity for growth (experience and position).

    I have been working at Matrikon

    Pros

    - Work\Life Balance

    - Family oriented
    - Performance salaries

    Cons

    - Stressfull at times
    - Dynamic targets
    - Economy pressures

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the unimpressed and lower performing employees. It is disheartening to have to work sometimes with those who you can tell do not care. If they are only looking for a paycheck they can go into retail.
