    I worked at ECI Technology full-time

    Pros

    Smart people. Interesting work. Nice facility. Good equipment.

    Cons

    Total disrespect for individual. Sweatshop culture. Micromanagement top to bottom. Zero opportunities for career advancement if you are not a member of the CEO's family. Low salaries. If your position assumes travel - travel will be crazy - two hours notice is often the case, so be prepared to have packed suitcase handy t all times.

    Advice to Management

    Face the people - most of the people , who have worked for your company longer than a couple of years are feeling frustrated and looking for a new place.
