  1. A company that cares about it's people.

    I have been working at Midtronics full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I haven't been here long, but the thing that has stuck out most is the respect the company has for it's employees. The level of transparency is unreal. Everyone knows exactly where the company stands financially, what our goals are, and what the plan of action is, because we are all part of the conversation. The on-boarding process was phenomenal, and I instantly felt like a valued member of the team. I appreciate the flexibility and growth potential allotted to my position.

    Cons

    Hmm, I've gained a few pounds because of all of the food that is always around. But, seriously - I'm very happy here so far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue being transparent and offering a progressive, flexible work environment that allows employees to grow with the company.

    I have been working at Midtronics full-time

    Pros

    Midtronics is a place to get started, re-start or to transit. Midtronics feeds employees breakfast every Friday morning and lunch every third Wednesday of the month.

    Cons

    Midtronics hardly provide training to the employees. There is no room for grow. In certain areas, managers get all the credits. There is no promotion from within and no knowledge sharing. In certain area, manager yells, screams and bullies to the degree of abusive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the top management, exercise care and pay attention to what you hire to the upper management positions. And, pay a little more attention to the rank-n-file.

    Pros

    Great benefits for employees and extra incentives such as Friday breakfasts, health club reimbursement, tuition reimbursement, great insurance coverage, monthly EXPO's, family picnic and holiday party. The CEO is dedicated to the employees and the company.

    Cons

    None as long as you are prepared to be challenged.

    I have been working at Midtronics full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They care a lot about their employees. I mean they even provide free breakfast on casual Friday and free lunch at a monthly employee meeting where they talk about the company. If you like to be challenged by your work, this is the place for you! Employment is pretty secure here. They had no layoffs during the recession.

    Cons

    The company has grown a lot very rapidly in the past few years and is changing some of the way they do things. Not everyone likes that but it does seem to be needed.

    I have been working at Midtronics (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are generally bonuses every year. The benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    Lots of yelling if thinks are not done correctly, lots of quarreling between departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop always having to find someone to blame. Whenever you blame someone that works for you, you really need to look at yourself. Are you empowering the individual employee allowing them to succeed or fail, or are you micro managing and not allowing them to prove themselves?

    I worked at Midtronics

    Pros

    They have a very good benefit package, the only company I know of that will help pay for gym memberships. The work there was challenging and I enjoyed the technical details.

    Cons

    They have a basic attitude there that if the numbers do not get met (yearly sales) someone will be fired. It does not matter if that person is the problem or not, but someone has to go. In 5 years 6 people were fired or quit in one department because the numbers were not met. And these people were good at their jobs, all I know of went on to excellent careers at other companies. As it becomes clear that the numbers are not met, more and more pressure is put on people. And I don't mean numbers that indicate profit or loss, I mean goal numbers that are very high. In the 5 years mentioned none had a loss. There is rarely any positive feed-back. Although they claim to support employee education, they will not agree to anything that would take more than 1 or 2 day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some jobs simply take longer to do than others. I have seen people fired because the project they were on was taking too long, but that was not their fault, some things just take longer. Just because you don't understand what they are doing does not mean they are doing it wrong.
