    Pros

    Strong company with mostly good people. Fast paced industry with very good benefits. Very personable c level executives. Also provide free coffee

    Cons

    Don't expect to do your job description they just toss more stuff this isn't your job. No one knows who's responsibility half the tasks are.

    Advice to Management

    Fire half your management team since they don't do anything and promote the people who actually work hard for you

    Pros

    Work environment is good, people are great, the managers in the Materials department are down to earth and caring all the way to the VP. Not all the departments are perfect but you cannot review a whole company by the experiences you have had with your own department and that goes both ways.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement but that's because most like their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward.

    Pros

    Ever changing work environment. No boredom here. Great sense of community amongst all departments.

    Cons

    Sometimes things move so quickly that employees heads are spinning. If you're not willing to get in the boat and row- this isnt the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that the fast nonstop pace of the company can be overwhelming to some.

    Pros

    Good pay. May be interesting work.

    Cons

    Bad culture. Lot of politics and always in panic mode because of internal wars.
    Fear of not making quarterly revenue causes premature products released to market.
    Then they come back to haunt you.
