    I have been working at API Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Good people. Diversified staff. Certain people/positions are given large responsibilities, which can be a good thing. Opportunity to travel to other sites. Advancement/growth opportunities for those that are willing to consider other locations and/or business units within API.

    Cons

    The overall benefits package could be better, especially for a company their size. Communication from top-down needs improvement - doesn't reach all employees or there isn't any communcation.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to all levels of employees and not just the executives and/or board.

    Pros

    Excellent workforce in production. Produce great quality parts.

    Cons

    Upper Management. Corporate accountants not paying vendors so parts are received late, causing bad on time delivery rates.

    Advice to Management

    Put customer first.

    Pros

    Competitive wages, Good Benefits, Great Co-workers. Some very talented people.

    Cons

    Because of its size in Hudson NH and the lack of work at times management will make the tuff decisions and cut where it needs and not look back.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more sales people to bring in the work. There is an amazing work force there and really produce when put to the task.

    Pros

    Good People at the location, not so good on top.

    Cons

    Stuck in a multi Location company where other companies are dragging down the good performing ones, hurting their future.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to appreciate the need for new products, as lack of them will hurt this location's ability to survive profitably.

    Pros

    Very cool and smart people I work with. Managers are very approachable (at least in the upper management ranks)

    Benefits arent all that good. Health Insurance is expensive and it's not very good coverage (even on their BEST plan). Trying to get a raise is like pulling teeth

    Great place to learn what not to do for profitability.
