    Pros

    They contribute 3% of your annual salary and invest in a 401k even if you do not contribute. Work with highly advanced digital communication products.

    Cons

    Very poor management and only half of the engineering staff actually works. No room for advancement in the company. They do not give raises when you take on a new position in the company that requires much more responsibility. Teams are micro-managed by people who have no idea what their team actually does on a daily basis. No recognition for a job well done, but are quick to berate you for any mistake no matter how small and inconsequential it is. Management constantly goes back on their word and does not like to communicate via email so there is a trail to trace the conversation back to. The HR and QA departments are a joke. I reported a sexual harassment incident & the perpetrator received a raise instead of jail time or termination. The company is constantly involved in underhanded practices such as swapping serial numbers on units to meet orders, lying by omission to customers, can rarely ever get a sales order completed on time and the owner steals designs and concepts from Dell, Cisco, Radysis, Intel, Zynx and all of the other industry leaders and every board that they design in house takes way to long to develop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your heads from your rear ends and realize that your underlings are the only people that actually work in the company and produce sellable product. Stop making the work environment so stressful because the management and administrative employees are unorganized and cannot do their jobs correctly the first time around.

    Pros

    Som connection with high-tech and its customers.

    Cons

    A very agressive and back stabbing environment. Like working with a bunch of little kids competing for an extra cookie at lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The attack first and apologize second is not required to press your points and agenda.

    Mindset of a small company even though there is a growth, certain old timers have difficulty in getting along with all the changes...

    Bait and switch hiring, look out! Not as hi-tech as portrayed.

    I worked at Vadatech Inc.

    Pros

    In a bad economy, its a job. The air conditioning works great on hot summer days. Reasonably hi-tech assembly line. Small company trying to grow into a larger company.

    Cons

    Company practices bait and switch hiring. Job title, definition and duties change after hire. Compensation well below average. Questionable ethics rampant in all aspects of business.

    Company develops uTCA supporting hardware, not uTCA payloads. The Company including their website will confuse you with hi-tech nature of the work prior to being hired. The company just builds the boards, nothing else. The Company will tell you they are using the latest processors, FPGAs, etc., but they are just soldering them on the board for a customer, not actually using the processors, FPGAs, etc..

    Development working environment is chaotic, antiquated, obfuscated and entrenched beyond redemption. Management is also entrenched, far behind in development practice with no understanding of modern methods or even understanding of any method! Nothing is written down so deniability is easy.

    Management will treat you like an idiot that must be micromanaged constantly. ANY disagreement with managers appears to be grounds for termination. Watch out!

    Management constantly talks 'smack' about past hires that didn't 'work out' as an intimidation technique. However after working in the company, I suspect the past hires were competent but were unable to perform at the reduced level of Vadatech's "standards".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join the 21st century or even the late 20th century. If you legitimately want to improve, try to understand that there may be much better ways of doing things than what you are doing. Just because you are unfamiliar with them doesn't mean there aren't better ways of doing anything. You are hiring to try and make changes and improve, why not listen to who you hire?

    I worked at Vadatech Inc.

    Pros

    Good pay and state of the art products makes Vadatech a leading edge company that most would want to be a part of.

    Cons

    CEO is sole designer. If something were to happen to him the company would collapse. Designs are innovative yet not thoroughly reviewed lending to repeated problems. CEO has total control and listens to no one. Lots of promises are made but very few are kept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down. Listen to those you surround yourself with. Don't make false promises you have no intention of keeping.

    I worked at Vadatech Inc.

    Pros

    Vadatech is at the forefront of uTCA and ATCA development. The vision and direction of Vadatech is its most alluring quality.

    Cons

    The vision of the company is a deception and the underlying technology is the bait. 'Just-in-time' engineering of touted mission critical products and applications is beyond unethical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to the highest bidder and seek therapy to cope with the perversion of a company you've collectively created.
