    I have been working at Advanced Energy for less than a year

    Pros

    The work environment was calm and they trust you to get the work done. They won't be up in your face all the time. It is a constructive environment and people will answer questions whenever you have them.

    Cons

    It seems there is a small disconnect between upper management and the employees, leading to some choices that don't always make sense.

    I worked at Advanced Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good perks at this company. Raises are few and far between as are bonuses. Lower management understand the technology and try to manage.

    Cons

    upper management is controlled byt Marketing and causes disastrous changes. Constant changes in upper management leaves little knowledge of what has been done and what should be done.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees and respect them

    Pros

    Great Technical and Engineering People

    Cons

    Self absorbed upper management ( VP and above) that only knows how to how to cut cost in order to increase the stock price to a target of $27 per share. The founder of the company wants to sell the company and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for your actions. Also it is time to change upper management!

    Pros

    If you can get into one of the view engineering groups left (that has not been off-shored), there is much to learn and for sure you will be challenged with a great engineering experience. Pay and benefits seem to be in par with similar industries. There are some extremely talented engineers there (not many left though); the employees that remain are very good people.

    Cons

    Executive management simply does not care about employees...period! Board of directors is focused on "share-holder value". If you want a company were you can contribute your ideas to upper management then this is not the place for you. Lots of slogans and mission statements, but no substance behind them. Layoffs are frequent and deep; but they spin it in such a way as to not have to make announcements, so most of the public does not see half the layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    People are what make up a good company! Your taking the most productive, innovative, and motivated people (as the USA is known for) and tossing them to the side. And by the way, employees are share-holders too! Your short term strategy will not pay off.
