    Was once a good place to work...

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Murrysville, PA

    ProsNot too many. Close if you live in Murrysville.

    ConsBig company attitude. Cuts made at will. Lots of overtime. Really went downhill after Philips took over. Many experienced people have left or are unhappy there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up! This was once a great place to work. The big company culture has taken over and squeezed out all the good things. You need to make it great again. What would Jerry think?

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

    Murrysville, PA

    ProsFantastic supervisor and co-workers, lots of technology practices to learn and follow. It is great to expanded my technical knowledge here.

    ConsBeing a contractor is not my ideal situation, as I would like to become a full time employee. This will hopefully come with experience and time. Also the cafeteria food is not fantastic.

    Friendly Co-workers, limited room for advancement.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Murrysville, PA

    ProsHad a really great culture pre-Philips when I was there. Interesting research work available to technical employees and a pretty good intern and mentoring program.

    ConsIt seemed like the culture changed negatively after the acquisition. There seemed to be limited room for advancement. After the acquisition it seemed like product development was more focused on cutting costs than developing new features and innovating.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
