    I would have to say it is very strict and demanding

    Assembler (Former Employee) Sparta, NC

    ProsYou are always busy when you are working

    ConsIt is a temporary job, they hire off and on

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou really need to demand more drug testing

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Napco is ok to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood company to work for, very stable and has been around for years. Advanced security in a field that sometimes has problems.

    ConsShould listen to employees more and have better advancement for them. There are a lot of competitors in this market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould listen to employees more and have better advancement for them. Could have better benifits and vacation for loyal employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Mixed feelings

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent products, loyal customers who have been with the company often for many years.

    ConsOverly focused on a large number of appointments which leads to quantity over quality (in my opinion).

    Great Products, Questionable strategy

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Amityville, NY

    ProsThe products are superior to others within the same catagory. Customer base is loyal and consider it to be the best in the market.

    ConsManagement does not respect the employee base. Their strategy of how they go to market puts them in a bad light with their distribution network.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time educating the end users and dealers, less time strong-arming distributors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If you like to be a serf in an oligarchy, this is your place.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Amityville, NY

    ProsIts a job. The company has been around for a long time and I dont se it going away anytime soon. Thats solid!

    ConsLow pay. I once was a professional.. until everything I went to school for and have gained by working in the field was undermined. I am told what to do. There is no thinking, since I was threatened to be terminated for doing so. (And my job requirement is to do some thinking lol.) No communication. No meetings. Nothing. Less than nothing.

    If you are not part of the top 6 or so people you are expendable. Expect to be disrespected. You are a dummy. They have long noses to look down upon your idiot self... with a smile mind you. ;) The power dynamic is closed shut and there is no room for movement. Expect your self esteem to float away and confidence to be sapped.

    Raises? Nothing based on your work, but a communal 4% and not every year. I am probably underpaid by 30% for my skill set.
