    Pros

    Opportunities to work on cutting edge test and measurement equipment.
    Comfortable team environment, sharing of knowledge and opportunities to learn from other engineers with a vast background in test and measurement design.

    Cons

    The company is heavily stacked with experienced engineers (i.e., 15 or more years at the company), which can make it difficult for younger engineers to move up the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize engineers who excel and promote them or compensate them appropriately compared to lower performing engineers in your project team.

    Pros

    Great to work with hard-working intelligent people. Good tuition support. Great to work with hard-working intelligent people. Good tuition support.

    Cons

    Management gets its inspiration from in-flight magazines guiding principle-of-the-day. Will euthanize any investment or assets to appear to make a buck. Reckless abandonment of quality and customer loyalty to "price position" products. No long term committments to anything at all except CEOs.

    Advice to Management

    Go ahead and sell Test and Measurement and be done with it. You don't want it. Sell it to someone who wants it, like the employees! Then you can be a "pure play" life sciences company like you want.
