    Struggling to Move Forward and Keep Growing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood salary, 401k with match, interesting product line, cheap benefits (high deductible), small family company.

    ConsCall center like work environment, favoritism, executive management is out of touch with the day to day realities of the business, departments are often antagonistic with each other, generally low morale and unhappy coworkers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time planning and defining product requirements which will lower support costs and reduce the need for so much marketing collateral.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A growing company where Senior Management is increasingly out of touch with the workers.

    Engineering (Current Employee)
    Melbourne, FL

    ProsThe company was founded with a philosophy of providing innovative products that would improve quality assurance related to radiation therapy. The associates truly felt that they were part of something more than just a company building products. The owner of the company treated all associates like family and fostered an environment that made people want to come to work everyday and truly do the best job they could.

    ConsThe owners son is now CEO and has surrounded himself with "Yes" men & women in Sr. Mgt. who care more about meeting dept. goals (which result in five figure bonuses) than actually fostering a healthy & productive work environment. The problem has been compounded by the fact that there has been a huge increase in Middle Mgt. which has resulted in the average worker having to report to & be micromanaged by 3-4 people. This is now a company where almost everyone is gone by 5:15pm everyday. People have no desire to be in a negative high pressure environment any longer than the standard 8 hour workday even if they are salaried employees. Moral has never been worse and the secretive nature of decision making & employee compensation only helps to lower it even more. The 2014 changes in healthcare have put additional burdens upon people with existing conditions and HR has been woefully inadequate in their assistance. People at all levels who never thought they would want to leave the company are now polishing up their resumes and actively looking to get out as soon as they can.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the fact that the strong employee driven foundation that the company was founded upon is slowly crumbling.

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

    Hmm ... Where to begin?!?

    R&D (Former Employee)
    Melbourne, FL

    ProsAt one point, the company direction was truly to move forward and provide customers with high quality products that they could use. Company focused on providing employees with a sense of ownership and pride in what they did, fostered an environment that let employees have a balanced work life and home life, and you could feel the dedication that people had to doing the best they could and then going a step or two further to improve the product and themselves. It was a place where people came to work, but felt like they were with family.

    ConsThe layers of management just keeps piling up. Workers are looked at as drones that are hired to do a job and a job is what they have. have to agree with previous poster that said most people are looking for a way out. Missed steps and missed opportunities will keep company from making future goals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to what made this company so strong before. Hire management that have a passion for creating quality, innovative products that benefit people's lives. Get away from always looking at the bottom line and being a money driven company. Get back to being a leader in the industry in both products and employment culture. Remember, a new shiny building doesn't mean that the work atmosphere is great.

    Bad news...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Melbourne, FL

    ProsAll the great things are in the past... Core of the competent people who actually know what's going on, is quickly dissolving. Those staying are utterly unmotivated to do anything as they are being pushed around by incompetent and overblown new management structure.

    ConsFor the cons, this place could be a book example of how to screw-up a formerly successful business. Horrible company culture that fosters nepotism, multiple standards, incompetence to name just a few highlights. Innovative? Makes me laugh: bluntly attempting to create copies of competitor's products for the past couple of years (just like a good third-world sweat shop), while having people who could make those products perform better.
    "Fast-food" hiring policies, pet projects that don't last... all that is bound to bring "fast-food" results.
    The employees morale... I have not seen lower. Most are busy scouting on Indeed and LinkedIn for the ways to get out. Promotions? Forget it... as long as you are not in cahoots with the Gravy Train conductors there. If you are, then you know what a ride you are joining, although it could not last long if it goes like it does now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up and smell the outhouse... the the Gravy Express could just crash there in a few years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great product, horrible management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are some very creative designers, physicists, engineers, software developers to work with here.

    ConsThe current management has been in place for two years. Their financial success has grown, but the employees (some loyal over 20 years) are jumping ship and leaving because they are cutting salaries, under staffed, doubling the work load, and the management just doe not listen to the employees at all any more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire new management that can see the both the financial aspects and the human aspects as well.

    Very stable innovative company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTop executives are down to earth and open to communication with employees. The pay is good, not great, but okay. The products produceds are interesting and innovative.

    ConsI find that middle management is cumbersome at times. It feels like it is losing the small company feel that makes it so exciting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut some of the red tape out.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
