Stagnant as their technology grew older and was not upgraded.

Business Applications Analyst (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Suntron

ProsSmall company so you wear many hats.

ConsLack of money so technology was aging. Also competence of salaried employees was low as they promoted within instead of hiring qualified people from outside.

Going Nowhere Fast

Safety Manager (Former Employee)
Sugar Land, TX

I worked at Suntron

ProsEnjoyed manufacturing environment - with diverse customer base and product line. Full service company at the time ranging from design to complete manufacturing and testing. Appeared to be driven management team to identify new customers and product lines to avoid lulls between contracts. Large local employement base of 1,400 and seven other plant locations throughout the United States. Twenty four hour operations with multiple lines on product manufacturing. Operations and staff sufficient to require full time safety and environmental manager without worry of boredom. Responsiblity of Texas Environmental Quality and ISO program for environmental audits and compliance. Most operations within the plant to limit some exposures.

ConsNo sales leadership; mid managers not held accountable for performance; not exploring all opportunities to create revenue; held hostage by customer base - afraid to tell customer no for fear they would go elsewhere - would not sell quality only price. Could seemlessly end one product line and begin another one. Senior Management would place themselves above the employees and to a dregree manage by intimidation - peoplae were not only truthful for fear of "shooting the messenger".Poor planning on management team to schedule work - Leased workforce management would advise to train new employees then product line would not be implemented for weeks after - those employees would leave and be forced to retrain - waste of time, money and resources.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire a aggressive sales staff and hold them accountable for non-profitable business;
Explore other revenue streams. Hold management team accountable at all levels - Senior management needs to be more involved in customer rentention and acquisition.

Suntron...too many office politics...

Documentation Specialist (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Suntron

ProsIt's a place to get you through until you find something better

ConsThe work environment is very office political. There are several rules and it may seem as though you are in high school rather than a career. Management and Supervisors tend to stick together regardless of what employees are going through. Nothing gets done about real issues.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think it would be wise to allow employees to review supervisors, managers, and customer service departments anonymously. Not just people the work under but people they have to deal with on a constant basis. Also I would suggest they look at trends in people leaving certain departments and look to see the real reason people dont stay in a certain position. They would learn alot about how unhappy people are and it may save them from having to deal with worse case issues later.

What a GREAT Turn-around!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Suntron

ProsFantastic changes in the leadership team. Congrats to the BOD. Great quality workmanship, customer delivery performance and satisfaction is among the best sustained performance in the industry. Understand customers are different and have different needs - not one-size fits all. Place customer and employee values at the top of the priorities - people feel valued. New leadership team is nimble and has a long-term thinking in decisions.

ConsNot enough people realize how good they are. Best kept secret in the industry.

Every company has issues, but the good far exceeds the bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet this website to update the management / company information. Out with the old, in with the new.
