    I have been working at Benchmark Electronics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is in a state of transformation that makes it exciting to imagine its future state. The leadership cares about the employees and even more about its customers and meeting their needs is HIGH priority. A seriously great company to work for.

    Cons

    Because of the speed of change, to work here you have to be willing to run close to redline. However, it is a marathon and it is exciting to see the pace of positive change.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the employees who take care of the customers. We are in this together.

    I worked at Benchmark Electronics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is decent for a job you don't interview for, and asks very little of you intellectually and physically

    Cons

    Toxic inter-departmental culture, lots of on-the-job racism, animosity toward new employees is incredibly blatant and makes what should be an easy and relatively mindless job excruciating to walk into every day. Most days, I encountered 4-6 hours of downtime out of an 8 hour day except at the end of the month when they'd ask you to stay as late as 5-7 hours past your regular end-of-day. Symptomatic of poor... management. They have also been losing some of their important contracts. Future does not look bright here.

    Advice to Management

    You need to address workplace toxicity, you need to address the fact you're bleeding employees left and right due to the existence of similar and better paying opportunities. Your logistics needs work if 29 days out of the month your employees are struggling to find work until the one day you're asking them to pull a 16 hour shift. The people training your employees need to stop being so openly hostile toward new... hires. Your shipping department has more drama than a middle school. Get it together.

    I have been working at Benchmark Electronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Lots of overtime, if you want it - Safe and clean work environment - Healthcare benefits are decent

    Cons

    - Employees are horribly compensated (most depend on the endless mandatory overtime to make a living). - Management is not interested in the real problems holding back the production process and regularly do nothing when an issue is brought to their attention. - Horrible disconnect between the development and manufacturing teams. - The integrated systems and network that Benchmark's processes depend on are... broken and regularly go down. - Many people are held back from promotional opportunities as their current departments do not want to deal with replacing them.

    Advice to Management

    - Implement a continuous feedback loop that encourages your employees to speak up about known issues and create a network of accountability to ensure that the issues are dealt with. - Reconsider your leadership, many people in management positions are content with the status quo and disinterested in stimulating change. ( I am honestly surprised that the company continues to function)
