    I have been working at Plextronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    professional people, most can take a joke so that means it is fun to work there most days.

    Cons

    No focus for growth, years of being told a product is just around the corner, but if you look around that corner you see another corner, year after year. Recent layoffs were due to lack of money but those laid off were mostly lower paid job and contact personal. Honesty used to be company strong point, now it's lie and hide the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You kept the people that got us into this mess and eliminated the workers, you cut the legs off the company, and we used to be able to keep our heads above water, now we have that sinking feeling.

    I have been working at Plextronics full-time

    Pros

    Great technology , talent and workforce.

    Cons

    Poor management, no chance of career advancement if no does not have a PhD or is part of the BD group.

    Managers are hypocrites and some have no social skills. They also treat employees like salves and will not hesitate to threaten or guilt trip you to working 24/7. There is no work and life balance working at Plex

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect and decency
