    I worked at Zetec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people working with the tools we delivered. They are dedicated and interested in performing excellent, honest work.

    Cons

    There doesn't seem to be a future in the technology, simply put. The management struggled to perform, and there was no opportunity to advance.

    I worked at Zetec full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, excellent work-life balance, nice facilities, beautiful location. Easy to get time off, very easy-going in that respect.

    Cons

    Zetec is managed by a holding corporation on the other side of the country. The holding corporation doesn't seem to really understand the industry and doesn't care about the people who depend on the company for jobs. They only care about the books and quarterly profits. They will lay people off if numbers aren't met, even if the personnel were essential. Bottom line, morale isn't the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use a little more long term thinking, don't be so obvious about quarterly profits and layoffs. Good solid companies don't need to worry about that if they have a well-thought long term strategy.

    I worked at Zetec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Zetec has a pretty good 401k match. Employees can buy Roper stock at a discount rate.

    Cons

    The management has no clear vision for the future of the company. Merit increases don't keep up with the cost of living. Regular layoffs for the last five years. When Roper bought the company they took away all the fringe benefits that made working a Zetec nice, they called it "plucking the low hanging fruit". I witnessed an employee physically drag a woman back to her desk. I saw a new employee bullied for over a year, he was laid off shortly after taking his complaints to HR. I overheard hateful comments about homosexuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A company can't run off managers alone; if you keep laying off workers you won't have anyone to manage.

    Pros

    Loved working the early morning shift to find that I could still schedule Dr. appt. w/out missing work.

    Cons

    Getting laid of just broke my heart...lost my Zetec family and great working conditions with lots of great hard working co-workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have never outsourced our work...then alot of employees could have had their jobs saved
