    I have been working at Cetecom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You have a chance to work on different radio technologies and products. Whenever you take a new project, you always got new things to learn and enjoy. You will understand lots of tech requirement and become professional in EMC. You will definitely get lots of improvement after you run through a few projects

    Cons

    so far so good. no downsides

    Advice to Management

    Compliance manager called Franz which is very nice from first time interviewed me. And it is valuable to work with him. He taught me a lot. It is always beneficial to work with knowledgeable people

    I worked at Cetecom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love testing antenna performance OTA. Been doing it since 2007. Most of all, making clients content and satisfied once their products met the carrier(s) specifications/requirements limit

    Cons

    No cons. Well, perhaps just one teeny weeny. Not all products are perfect and some will pass and some will failed the specifications per their carrier(s) Everything can't be nearly perfect. But eventually, it all worked out well. A little debug here and there. And VOILA!!! Success!!!!! Clients were content and their upper managements and so were we. Until the launched of their new next projects. Hand shook and off their way; safe trip home/office. Either domestic or overseas.

    Advice to Management

    If you would give me a dollar. In return I would give you back double. If you send an unhappy clients; at the end of the day, that client will have a smile on his/her face.

    Pros

    Free customer lunches and decent 401k.

    Cons

    Poor management and lack of appreciation to achievers!
    Lower compensation and ambiguous future. Save the good ones before they leave you with bad food for yourself!

    Advice to Management

    Identify good talent and retain them before they are gone!

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

    Pros

    Easy going when there is no project, and you get to meet with a lot of customers from over the world.
    People are friendly, especially the receptionist, or the HR of San Diego ?!

    Cons

    Your position and salary never move up, and the company makes very questionable decisions.
    You're also to be expected to work like a dog when projects kick in.

    And if you're to work for this company, don't expect for up-to-market salary / pay.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the employee for what they have contributed? People don't take this job because they like this job. Even a dog gets some treat when it learns new tricks (Thank you is not a treat for a lot of hard work).

    Top management (private in GERMANY) does not have a clue! They have pulled out of the TELECOM Valley and are consolidating to SILICON Valley....This decision has resulted in lost opportunities and will continue!
