    Wonderful co-workers, poor executive leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Fort Collins, CO

    ProsPelco has wonderful people. Intelligent, adept at their jobs, and fun to be around. The benefits and general management are very good.

    ConsThe executive leadership is poor. There has been a significant attrition rate for employees of all levels, due almost exclusively to the executive groups. The lack of good leadership has also contributed to extreme issues with product development and delivery.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSetting reasonable goals and a logical roadmap would be greatly useful. And not getting involved in contracts which were known to be impossible from the outset.

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

    Engineering Product Development

    Senior Development Engineer (Current Employee)
    Fort Collins, CO

    ProsWork with great people on leading edge video surveillance products. Cross-functional teams work well together. Company first level management is strong.

    ConsCompany is not growing in a market that typically grows over 10 percent per year. Concern about do downsizing in later part of 2014

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to customers. Marketing needs to look for new markets outside the companies historical comfort zone. Company needs a change to the executive leadership at division headquarters in Clovis.

    PelcoCompany Review

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Fresno, CA

    ProsPelco on a whole was a very good company and it still has some good people and managers there.

    ConsManagement has no loyalty to employees or the company, there is no over view or structure they layoff people based on personal reasons not for the best interest in the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSchneider needs to have more over site and control over it's Pelco operations. Unfortunately there was a culture of promoting people who weren't qualified or suited for the position. A lot of these were based on friends, good but kissers and some liars.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Overall

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGlobal competitor. Global visibility. Networking.

    ConsUnclear business strategy. Poor job-security. Fear\threat-based management style and poor morale within the company "If you don't do _____ then ______ will happen" or "If you don't like it then find another job" Little to no upward mobility within the company. Very small pay raises, if any. Outside certifications and training not approved. Management continues to add more responsibility with no compensation. Executive and Management makes uneducated decisions that affect lower level employees with dissatisfactory reasoning resulting an poor sales and ultimately - layoffs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
