    I worked at Cognex full-time

    Pros

    Worked with talented individuals and great leaders. Company prioritizes playing hard, working hard, moving fast. Salary was fair, the work itself was rewarding. Felt the company was headed in the right direction, as one can see by their stock price.

    Cons

    Wish they had an office in the city I moved to so I could still work there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Cognex full-time

    Pros

    This company has a fantastic culture that places a very high value on individual performance and positive attitude.

    Cons

    I'm worried that as the company grows...as any company grows, that it will become more bureaucratic. I hope that management fights that possible trend.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the culture get diluted as the company grows
