I have been working at FLIR full-time (More than 3 years)
Flexible work, not very stressful (until quarter end).
No care for employees. Pay is not good (only 3% increases). Benefits team doesn't help with issues, no advancement opportunities. Employee events/activites are half hearted.
Advice to Management
Listen to your employees. Hold people accountable
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FLIR (Portland, OR) in April 2016.
Interview scheduling was a bit chaotic. Eventually an on-site meeting was scheduled and I went out there, but it was a very quick turn around time from go to show. I really jumped through some hoops and put myself at risk to get there when they asked. Then one of the key interviewers didn't show up. I knew it was over when they didn't even schedule a phone call with him.
Ultimately they went with an internal candidate. I was actually insulted by this. First time I felt like this in over a decade about an interview. I'm easy going normally. As an executive, I wen tout of my way to not waste external people's time, especially on a long flight, if I had an internal candidate.
