Approves of CEO

Pros

Top management is very reachable and open for suggestions. Company has acquired ISP and the integration is doing very well on personnel perspective. Each department has its "own" flexible hours, mainly allowing to take care of health issues.

Cons

The manufacturing field does not have room for career growth, unless your boss retires. Also, it has too much competition among engineers and few share information to the team. Salary varies too much. The only way to get a raise is being promoted.
