I have been working at Vicor Corp. full-time
Leading edge power technology; respected by and engaged with the "best of the best" technology companies in the world; culture of being driven to provide ultimate power performance; a world class manufacturing team still building close to 100% of products in Andover, MA; a wide variety of markets including military, medical, industrial, and computing; great team of employees. In my role, I have the freedom and autonomy to be able to hunt for new markets and opportunities, and ultimately to make a difference.
Technology leadership tends to focus more on a few large "game changing" customers and opportunities vs addressing complete markets. Typical technology company high stress level.
Advice to Management
Work towards more balance between individual engagements and addressing core markets to increase growth.
I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Vicor Corp. (Andover, MA) in January 2017.
Pretty standard HR call and salary expectations. Followed by a skype call with the manager and director of engineering asking about your background and resume and how that fits with the position. Then followed by an in-person. Judging from the Glassdoor reviews, the pay is below average anyways and a software department that wants to pay for what they get isn't the place for me. I would steer clear of this place it's not a place to grow your career but certainly a start for people beginning them.
Reasons for Declining
Tt was very off-putting to hear that the basis of my interview consisted of try to talk me down of my salary expectations because the company was in the suburbs and my expectations are for "city salary". Management also did not seem to have the strong skillset and sharpness that I look for in a team.
