    I worked at Measurement Specialties full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Global presence - many opportunities to leave your mark
    High tech - facilitates continuing your informal education
    Lean decision making - don't have to contend with a lot of red tape

    Cons

    Disjointed business units - feels like 5 or 6 completely separate companies
    Like many companies, plagued by subpar information systems
    Persistent change management atmosphere wears on the employee base

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The impersonal corporate culture does not facilitate team building or team work. Consider initiatives to drive a more cohesive environment.

    Pros

    Short of staff. Therefore you will always be busy. This means that time will fly by.

    Cons

    Keep records of everything (emails, faxes, voice recorder, if possible). If something goes wrong they will be looking for someone to blame. It will be you if you don't have proof.

    I have been working at Measurement Specialties

    Pros

    Lots of sites and opportunities to work with collegues around the globe
    Many technologies and industries to learn about and work on

    Cons

    Near-zero talent and human resource management
    Highly fragmented and desintegrated company
    Unfair workload for some and too easy for others
    Complex strutcure lacking simplification and nearly impossible to manage towards a common goal
    New Product Introduction out of control, not yielding tangible results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many acquisitions, not enough synergies and simplification, showing lack of results over last 7 years.
    Employees are treated as objects and talent under/over utilization is #1 cause of waste and lack of sustainable results

    I have been working at Measurement Specialties

    Pros

    - Regular work hours 8-5, rarely have to work overtime
    - Fairly light workload
    - Many products / large catalog

    Cons

    - Other than CEO, management are cronies. Kiss up and kick down culture.
    - Rude, sometimes belittling managers, who run their own fiefdoms
    - Disorganized company
    - Unmotivated employees
    - Bureaucratic
    - Poor quality control, lots of angry customers
    - Horrible communication within company
    - Most manufacturing done in China, which is a pain to coordinate / communicate with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to value their employees and technology, rather than cut costs, cut pay and staff, and grow solely by acquisition. Too many disparate sites that are poorly run, lack focus and motivation, and run like private fiefdoms.
