    I worked at Baron Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great environment and corporate culture. They make quality products that employees can be proud to stand behind. Employees are top notch. There is very little office drama. One of the best places I've had the opportunity to work.

    Cons

    Communication from upper management does not happen very often. Many times employees have little knowledge of company direction until surprised all at once. You have to seek out and track down information.

    Pros

    The company is full of great people working on things that are beneficial to the greater community. Working with weather radar is challenging and interesting. Management is benevolent and listens to employees.

    Cons

    Things can be a little disorganized, but it seems to be improving. Crowded facilities. Sometimes it seems that projects get lost in the shuffle. Company trying to figure out general focus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on improving!

    "Great Company"

    Pros

    Great company, with very intelligent and hardworking employees. Family feeling, and lots of flexibility. Exciting place to work if you love weather.

    Cons

    Desire to continue to innovate can sometimes lead company into false starts. Sometimes it feels the company is pulled in a lot of different directions, and not completely focused.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you do really well. Invest in your biggest asset, your employees. You've hired really passionate and smart people, listen to them.

    I worked at Baron Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Talented employees with great innovative potential.

    Cons

    Upper management has no real focus on the future. Sales by any means is considered acceptable even if the sale costs the company a huge loss. The sales team acts like a company within the company with no regard to rules.

    Advice to Management

    It is high time the management rein in the sales folks since they are more prone to drifting away and chasing personal than the company goals.

    Pros

    Good team atmosphere. Employees are always trying to make positive contributions. It's a small company, and there is a lot of opportunity to learn new things if you're willing to take on more responsibility.

    Cons

    Everyone is spread very thin. Senior management is unfocused and directionless, making things feel futile sometimes. No opportunity for career advancement.
