    I worked at Coilcraft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, good salary, flexible work environment, and work from home option if you are a Web developer. Senior management supports learning, creative work and if you want to go back to school part-time, it is a great place to be at. Open-ended work with a lot of interesting problems to solve and make an impact. There is a lot of freedom on how you would like to approach a problem. Company and managers are... supportive and understanding of employees with young families.

    Cons

    There is a learning curve to understand the way things work, to build connections and to understand senior management's expectations.

    I have been working at Coilcraft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable company with a strong reputation in both the industry and the community. Owners really care about employees and it is shown by commitment to work/life balance and bonuses (spring & Christmas). The benefits are incredible, great health insurance, profit sharing and 401k. Good place if you value autonomy and the ability to structure your own time.

    Cons

    Not many I can think of, maybe liven up the work space and paint the walls! Continue to identify an recognize top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
