    Pros

    Excellent HR department and they hire great people.

    Cons

    Upper management promotes friends to Senior positions. There is also a large amount of anti-intellectualism within upper management, don't tell them you went to college. Be ready to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Minimal promotional opportunities, if you want experienced people to stay consider giving them raises...

    I have been working at Starkey Hearing Technologies (less than an year)

    Pros

    The management was very good about trying to teach the interns something. Engineers on the team were willing to help when I had questions.

    Cons

    Interns were underutilized and management hid a lot of the day to day operations of the company. Interns were very isolated from many meetings and other project goings on.

    I have been working at Starkey Hearing Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Starkey leads the industry in customer service and innovative products. The leadership team is always looking at ways to improve and grow. This is a fast-paced, aggressive company with its eye on growth. If you are looking to punch the clock, this is no place for you. You will work hard but be rewarded for your contribution. You get what you give at Starkey.

    Cons

    Starkey can be tough to break into as a newcomer. There is also some dead wood that needs to go, but that's common in most large companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful not to alienate new employees and resist favoritism. It can be very distracting and non-motivating to those outside of the cliques.

    Pros

    * Good employee appreciation.
    * Rewarding job purpose.
    * Good benefits.
    * Profit Sharing/ESOP

    Cons

    * Co-workers that have been there for many many years are not as professional as they would be when they are new. Or they are too stuck in their old ways.
    * Some political bureaucracy can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep old time employees in their toes and don't let them get away with things you wouldn't normally allow from new employees.
