    I worked at Psion full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Major communication issues. Upper management did not communicate properly with lower management. After years of no raises and yearly layoffs due to the economy we were bought out by Motorola solutions and left in limbo for 3-4 months. Then told us they were going to keep us and grow the dept. Gave us a rate increase and went over benefits package for the year then two weeks later were told that our jobs were being outsourced to Mexico. Very confusing emotional roller coaster ride. Glad it is over.

    Great culture, fantastic learning opportunities.

    Management sold company to Motorola and the transition was somewhat drawn out and difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transition after merging with Motorola could have been better.

    I worked at Psion as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with and the work was sometimes interesting

    Cons

    In my opinion, very little focus on operational efficiency and making improvements where they were really needed. They've since been bought out so maybe things have improved a little.

    Current Employee - Pre-Sales Engineer in Antwerp (Belgium)

    I have been working at Psion full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice learning environment with a lot of technical challenges. I found the technology and verticals to be a new world for me, so it's a step up in my career to have seen so many new things. And learned a lot extra about doing channel business.

    Cons

    Middle and senior management sometimes loose track of why we all do our job. Winning and making money should always be the business-objective, but you can't drop the focus on other important factors for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay some attention to simple employee questions and respect the needs of certain individuals.
