    Pros

    The people on the software team and the software manager are great. The hours are pretty flexible; there are some people who occasionally work from home, come in late, etc. The atmosphere is pretty laid back and casual.

    Cons

    Often working on multiple projects at the same time. Upper management and project management aren't in sync with engineering. Currently not a lot of project management happening.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your engineers and start giving them the high level direction they want and need. Project Managers should be in sync with engineering, not the opposite.

    Pros

    Most of the people here are good to work with. The hours and shifts are very flexible for people that need them.

    Cons

    Sales are bad and the company looks like it's going downward. Most of the executive leadership has left the company in recent months. They have laid off or early retired quite a few people so far this year and the trend will probably continue. The company seems to have almost no value in good employees at all. Some individuals on the management team seem to have no clue what's going on which is pretty sad. This has made this a demoralizing place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Try to figure something out to turn this place around and maybe it will be fun to work at again.

    Pros

    Great people, flexible hours, family like culture.

    Cons

    The company is clearly in deep trouble, sales are down month on month, there have been multiple layoffs, early retirements, and many resignations. The remaining employees are deeply concerned for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees, stop pretending that things are not as bad as they actually are.

    Pros

    The people that are the "common" employees are great. For the most part it is a great place to work because of the co-workers

    Cons

    The owner is just about bringing in more money to her bank account. The company is on its third CEO in the last 3 years. Too many chiefs in this tribe and they are jumping ship now. The company is very directionless. Salary for employees are near the bottom of industry averages.

    Advice to Management

    You need to spend money to make money. Invest in the products that you are trying to put out and invest in the employees! They deserve more than what is given to them.

    Pros

    Lots of (good) changes in upper level management in the last since 6 months, including a new CEO and CTO. This is created a lot of optimism in the company. A lot of upper level management, including the CEO and CTO are very technical. This means Multi-Tech is very "tech-driven". Furthermore, promised changes and actions are being implemented. Around 10 people have been hired in the past couple months, mostly engineers. Here's to becoming the leader in designing, manufacturing and providing global data communication produces, services, and solutions that expand the connected world! Engineers get their own 12'x12' cube which can be very customized with sitting or standing desk, lighting over your cube on/off, etc.

    Cons

    There are tons of different systems for different things that are not integrated at all or very much. This includes benefits, payroll stuff, version control, test systems, wiki's, etc. However, currently there are actions being taken to consolidate these and make this much better.

    Pros

    Leader in Technology for the computer paced work force. Similar to ADC.

    Cons

    Since the owner and creator of the company died, there has been many changes, and funds spent on futile attempts to move the company forward. People seem to be floundering in their attempts. It is sad

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and up front about the health of the company
