    I have been working at Advanced Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Coworkers make the job tolerable

    Cons

    Poor planning, poor management decisions and lack of accountability to name a few. Service management is so disconnected that it is quite clear that they are only in it for themselves. Turnover has been high for a number of years and they are constantly losing their best people to inter-company jobs or leaving entirely.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your workers and they take care of you. Doesn't appear anyone has ever heard that before as you are clearly after your own interests and not your people.

    I worked at Advanced Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexibility at work and very laid back.

    Cons

    No one know what they’re doing. The higher ups can care-less about the lower people who grind everyday to make their company stay afloat. You aren’t appreciated for what you do there at all. Have to beg and beg for any promotions or raises. They look for outsiders to fill positions rather than to promote people. A lot of empty promises and shady business. Not good pay either.

    Advice to Management

    Care more and look around at who actual does their jobs.

    Pros

    Good benefits good coworkers

    Cons

    Worked here for over 16 years! Too much management they all sit around and do nothing have no clue how to do there job (in service that is) but are excel spread sheet readers who tell you priority like you can’t read. They’ll promote you on wage freeze years and not make up for your raises. They will steal bonuses from you!!! Their money’s important yours is not.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat up top. Quit listening to “yes” men swallow your pride and make some real money by treating your employees fairly and listen to what’s really the problems.
