    Pros

    There are some very good and talented people here

    Cons

    The culture is one of dog eat dog, perpetuated by the COO. Rules by dividing and conquering and encouraging middle management to berate their subordinates. Employees are touted as being empowered to make changes ... Nothing could be further from the truth as they are micro-managed to death. It just sucks the life and desire right out of you. They expect everything out of their employees, yet never reward or nurture their efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Could be a great company if one or two individuals were replaced. To the CEO & COO, pull your greedy narrow minded heads out of your a.....

    Pros

    Top notch technology, good products and a consistently successful business model. Great colleagues - a family atmosphere where you can work with the same people for 30-years. Strong focus on global customers. The SmartScope is respected worldwide. Good job stability, low cost health insurance, scholarships, profit sharing, bonuses , high but reasonable expectations for all employees. The atmosphere is often intense, but rarely 24/7. A good place to work if you have serious personal passions outside the 8-5 routine. Growing consistently while manufacturing in the USA - a lot to be proud of when you look at the big picture. Family owners committed for the long haul.

    Cons

    QVI is not for everyone. Lean environment isn't ideal for people who need a lot of direction or cheerleading. Assignments for new hires are not usually very glamorous. Change happens fast - sometimes too fast. Self-starters do well, innovators thrive. Promotion takes time. You need to find your own passion, your own niche - whether its technology or supporting customers - and promote yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your foot on the gas pedal of continuous improvement through quality and continuous improvement. Quality products are the easiest to sell and the most satisfying to own.

    Pros

    It is a paycheck and that's about it

    Cons

    low wages and management from the 18th century. Manages by fear and threats Total lack of employee personal life

    Advice to Management

    Join the twenty-first century: start treating your people like employees and not indentured slaves Buy some computer equipment that is less than 10 years old Fire all the dead wood employees, that might help to keep new people for more than a year

    Pros

    paid weekly,new employees can do as they please, profit sharing, reasonably good benefits, vacation and personal time

    Cons

    besides the obvious ghetto its located in, there is absolutely no guidance from superiors until they want to blame you for something, reviews are never ever on time, cheap parts to make high quality machines? MICROMANAGED to a fault!!

    Advice to Management

    Look around see what is going on listen to the voice of experience treat your people better and hire more people to work rather than more VP's and middle management.


  7. If you are innovative and willing to work hard to get ahead, this is the place to make a difference.

    Pros

    Quality Vision is is on the move and is a bright spot in Rochester. Many companies have downsized while QVI is growing.

    Cons

    The complex is secure but it in a bad area and the amenities are old.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good but being the catalyst to change is even better.

    Pros

    Benefits if you can stay long enough to get them

    Cons

    Company speaks about training, if you don't pick it up quick they walk you to the door. While I was working there current employees would ask me why I would take a job there. Too much is expected of you. No chance for a learning curve. You are expected to know everything with no prior knowledge about the products. You have procedures but no terminology sheets about t he lingo used regarding the machines. I would have gone faster if I have been given the knowledge needed to learn the job. Wow lesson learned Glass Door does not lie about reviews. Look at the red flags before taking a job.

    Pros

    Can't think of too many.

    Cons

    Low Morale. Management only cares about figuring out how to buy cheap China parts to maximize profit. Management is clueless to the voice of the people. Email is the main form of communication at QVI. No planned breaks forcing employees to find other ways to take a break. As far as I know employees are entitled to one 12 minute break before lunch and one 12 minute break before the shift ends.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people!!!!

    Pros

    It's a job that will give you a paycheck and benefits. That's as good as it gets.

    Cons

    Working here. Management doesn't care about their employees. They care about you doing what you're told, even if that means doing something incorrectly. Employee reviews are never on time. Suggestions are perpetually ignored. Determined to stay in the past in terms of both management and infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    There is none. They don't listen. You could present them with pages upon pages of evidence backing you up and they won't listen. Best advice? Work somewhere else, or work here long enough to get a better job. NOT a place for a long term fulfilling career.
