    I worked at Stanford Research Systems

    Pros

    Good work and life balance, casual environment with friendly people, flexible project schedules, high quality products, company located in the Silicon Valley where lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Low compensation (no annual bonus, no stock, only base salary and medical insurance), low up mobility, could be bored with a project that last for years to finish, the company seems lack the motivation to grow bigger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more and have the employee do more.

    I worked at Stanford Research Systems

    Pros

    You learn everything about test and measurement equipment design, from circuit board layout to calibration.

    Cons

    Management seems to be trying to sell the company. There hasn't been a new hire in years, and there's little opportunity to get management experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new engineers or scientists, and put existing engineers in charge of them.

    I worked at Stanford Research Systems

    Pros

    Workload is relatively light, very flexible project timeframe and working hours, friendly people, can learn a lot of skills in the industry.

    Cons

    The pay is relative low in the industry, very poor benefits. The higher management seems like a black box. No place for new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out to all employees for new ideas. Establish a promotion mechanism. Make a plan to retain internal talents. Improve benefits.
