    Pros

    Midtronics is purely result oriented. The company does not lie on how figures are managed. You can see the number of patents own by the company, and their growth in sales.
    The management is starving for growth, either you succeed and you win, or you must leave.
    In return, this high challenge is well payed.

    Cons

    Management is poor, and no career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Midtronics is a medium size company, but still managed as a small company. The company should promote some people internally and staff with new managers.
    The career development is poor, the company must invest more on trainings, courses, and give the opportunity to improve.

    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.

    Lots of Stress

    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?

    Stress-filled with impossible dead-lines and constantly playing the blame-game

    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.
