    Pros

    Positive work environment. The supervisors and managers are friendly and accommodating. They will try their best to help you out. Here, you get the best hands-on experience from planning a new product right down to soldering components for prototyping. Well set up and maintained lab facilities, you get all the equipment you will ever need.

    Cons

    I think the company is more into improving it's current products instead of allocating more resources to developing new products. New inventions are limited and the overall pace of development is somewhat slow.

    Advice to Management

    More resources should be allocated to research.

    Pros

    Some of the people are very hard working and friendly.

    Cons

    They talk alot about the benefits and ability to move up but it doesn't materialize. Bonuses have been cut two years in a row with this year looking like it will make 3. If you are close friends with the boss, you will be promoted, if not then they will work you into the ground. Either you try to keep up and eventually quit, or your work starts slipping and they fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Base the bonus structure on personal performance, not on unrealistic company goals. Hire more people and show them appreciation for their work. If someone is working 60+ hours a week for a year straight, they shouldn't have to look for a new position at the end of that year, just because unrealistic expectations were set and couldn't be met.

    Pros

    Job environment & atmosphere. Open collaboration. Freedom to state your opinion and do your job to the best of your ability. A compnay that is not only growing, but uses that growth to invest in its products and people.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of one in my tenure with Midtronics thus far. (No, my bosses cannot see this so I'm not being purposely biased :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what ya doing.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 Management

    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?
