    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.

    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).

    great team, great projects, proactive

    Cons

    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!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to live in your altered state! Gehen in den Kühler

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is really great. There is not a lot pressure to work once you leave for the day.
    Great work atmosphere/Great people.

    Cons

    There is no training so everyone is learning as they go.
    They always promise you a raise and a bonus but more often than not they will leave you mad and disappointed.


  11. "Good work life balance."

    Pros

    Company offers a good work life balance. The jobs tend to be very low stress. Good benefits and workplace atmosphere.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement in this small company. Advancement is limited to employees with many years of seniority with the company.

    Advice to Management

    All employees need more of a window into the direction the company is headed. Need more consistent raises and bonuses so employees know there is a punishment/reward system in place.
