    I worked at Vicor Corp. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Salary and community are decent. Everyone gets along well.

    Cons

    Too many upper management employees. I stopped trying to count the number of VPs in this company. The person that a department reports to changes constantly and with each change comes a new way of doing things and new standards to meet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to how a customer actually uses your products and less to how you think they should.
