    I have been working at Oilgear full-time

    Pros

    New Management is young, focused, and looking to take on the competition with innovation and take a real lead in the industry. Company Incentive plan, good salaries for engineering folks and a new breath of fresh air coming into the management ranks.

    Cons

    Has had it's challenges as the new younger Executive staff is coming in. Older more seasoned folks who are gun shy of stepping out and taking technical risks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great momentum, and great visions. Keep it up.
