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

    Pros

    Technology for P25 radio systems is innovative and more efficient than older technologies offered by companies such as Motorola and Harris. Small company environment backed by JVCKenwood which provides resources for manufacturing and research.

    Cons

    Small sales force that rely on Kenwood for sales support. Unfortunately they are not that familiar with P25 digital systems and are not enthusiastic about pushing EFJohnson products. In pursuing large contracts they have had limited success and Sales management have made poor decisions on staffing and strategies.

    Advice to Management

    In areas that I worked in, we were understaffed and had an unrealistic work schedule which resulted in a stressful work environment and subject to constant pressure. Headcount constraints imposed by corporate nevertheless resulted in layoffs which makes conditions even worse. My advice to management would be to value experienced employees and not be so quick to reduce staff as this will result in a high degree of dissatisfaction.

    I worked at EFJohnson Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Probably the most fun at a job I ever had; loved the people I worked with, great entrepreneurial atmosphere, did a lot with a little and they respected the work - life balance.

    Cons

    The ghost of EF Johnson past was always there rearing it's head. No matter that we demonstrated live fire trucks rolling over our products and they still worked, or our receiver sensitivity out performed the competitors. Time and time again we lost sales to a known brand over ours because of poor quality in the distant past. Never really hurdled that obstacle fully and EF Johnson was eventually bought by JVC Kenwood. Not sure how relevant my Pros are now

    Pros

    Great product with the Viking radio.

    Cons

    Lagging behind the market. No clear direction on future plans

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions and select leaders that can lead the company. You should find someone like the previous CEO, Andrew Adams who lead with passion, intelligence and keen business sense.

    The management could take time to say or good morning, and ask how were doing alot of time they walk pass by don't say a word and alot of ignoring
