    Pros

    Lots of overtime. Great place to just do your job and become a lost figure.

    Cons

    Lots of required overtime. No room for advancement unless you are related to someone.

    Advice to Management

    Increase education awareness...those making $30 per hour and no degree vs $15 per hour with bachelors degree...all based on union bs. Selling 10k units at 500 units per week manufactured, this company can justify taking care of all level employees and not just upper levels. Seniority employees believe they are untouchable but are really Sheeps in wolves disguises...forgive me on the pun. Management is trying to weed out the overpaid for cost savings. I can write an essay but chose to use that for a more prospective occasion.

    Pros

    Management is committed to the people and the projects. Not afraid to spend money to get the necessary resources to make projects successful. People are generally in the right positions and have the skills and knowledge to make an impact.

    Cons

    Management is fairly well entrenched, there is definitely a ceiling to advancement.

    Pros

    Decent, but grossly overpriced products

    Cons

    This company has pursued a dysfunctional, top-heavy management structure whose trademark is baseless arrogance, inefficiency, and cost ineffectiveness, the consequences of which are taken out on the hourly and low-level workers. These arrogant incompetents in upper management believe that the only important employees are the Overpaid, Unskilled Chair-Heaters (O.U.C.H.'s) in the office, and have no regard for the people who make this company function every day. They would rather spend 3-4 times the money for less productivity than admit they are clueless and ask the people who know. Stay away from this company if you intend to build a career.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people according to their skill and abilities, not just because they have a worthless degree, an aloof attitude and zero real world experience. Appoint people to positions who actually know something and possess the capabilities required instead of sticking with only the most dedicated corporate boot lickers and brown-nosers.

    Pros

    Great projects to work on. Lots of support from other engineers. I learned a lot during my time there. Lab Techs are very informative and fun to work with. Co-op position was focused on actual engineering projects that were not held back much by paperwork.

    Cons

    Discounts only apply to full time workers.

    Pros

    When beginning your career, you'll have an opportunity to get a level of responsibility that you might not find at other companies (especially large organizations). A few senior managers are terrific mentors and you can learn a lot from them.

    Cons

    In the long-term, the strict hierarchical structure can become constraining to further professional growth. Look at a position here not as a career path, but rather as a starting point to help gain experience for landing a position at your next company.

    Advice to Management

    This is not the 1950's -- ties are not a symbol of professionalism, they are a symbol of a firm caught in the past and unable to break free.
