    I have been working at Advanced Energy full-time

    Pros

    Terrific, knowledgeable, supportive employees in a positive atmosphere. Recent changes (last 2 years) have redirected company's focus in a very good way - people first. Also, compensation is above average and benefits are exceptional. AE has been a part of Fort Collins for a long time and glad I'm here.

    Cons

    really can't think of anything worth mentioning

    Advice to Management

    Please continue the current path

    Advanced Energy is a great company focused on growth, both in the market and for employees. There are a lot of intelligent, hard-working employees that help drive the company forward.

    Cons

    It can be a fast paced environment, and you have to be open to changing priorities (which is both a pro and a con).

    Keep recognizing good employees.

    I worked at Advanced Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very talented engineering teams, well established processes, albeit can be somewhat bureaucratic. Groups also often support proper development timelines and engineering feedback to marketing to get real products out with high reliability and in realistic timelines. They also were supportive of opportunities to increase skills, through internal learning opportunities especially.

    Cons

    CEO's change relatively often,... latest CEO is off-shoring some groups to be closer to customers' manufacturing bases (Asia). Difficult to say how extensive the off-shoring will be. Middle management does a very good job overall, although, they could improve through empowering individuals to have a little more say in what direction they'd like them to work in.

    Advice to Management

    As with most top to middle management exchanges, and down into the engineering organizations: improving transparency is always a challenge, and also insuring the organization can effectively communicate information up and down the ranks (yes, the top needs to listen as well!). Continuing to address these challenges will insure the organization stays cohesive and has the best chance of success in the boom and the bust times.
