    I worked at Designatronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A nice, brand new facility.

    Cons

    The company is run by people who know nothing about business or how to manage human beings. Zero empathy exhibited by management. Most staff are passive aggressive towards eachother. Management is overbearing, and spends more time concerned about how many times the staff goes to the bathroom, rather than improving customer service, efficient manufacturing and on-time delivery of parts. Way too much internal squabbling and anecdotes about how to do things instead of actually getting things done.

    Advice to Management

    The company's core competence is in the quality of its products, and it is the quality leader in the industry. However, quality products not backed by even mediocre service is a recipe for failure.

    I worked at Designatronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    New building,
    That's it the work environment change plus management sucks. Place needs better upper management. There's not to much to say.

    Cons

    Management more worried about smoke break using bathroom. Then marking money. Since new management came in place everything went down hill. Been working for them about 17 years since new management took over sales been down. To many layoffs

    I worked at Designatronics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, Small pension (but still a pension) after 5 years of service.

    Cons

    The pay was not good for the amount of work. Whenever a fellow employee called out, I had more duties placed on me as opposed to sharing the duties among all the employees (if 2 guys were out, I had to do their jobs plus mine meanwhile 4 other guys only had to worry about their own duties).

    Advice to Management

    I haven't worked there in a long time so I have no advice for management anymore. I assume that they moved on such as I did.

    Pros

    New management, management style, direction and rebranding of company in line with strategic growth plan.

    Cons

    Many seasoned employees let go after consolidation-too many changes too quickly, now high turnover rate.
