Pros

Stable company where a person can gain entry level experience before moving on.

Cons

Turnover is very high and the hours are long. The culture does not encourage or reward independent initiative or thinking. For anyone with a reasonable amount of ambition, there is very limited opportunity within the company itself. The majority of people who advance from the ground floor up seem do so on the basis of longevity rather than professional or personal merit.

Advice to Management

Take the time to get to know the employees who are managing the day to day tasks of the business and make sure those employees are being given opportunities to capitalize on their strengths. Let your employees know their contributions are are valued and appreciated, and be willing to invest in their well-being.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They build massive servers for Sun & Dell, so it was a great technical experience, board level. Also, a lot of base level UNIX.

    Cons

    Horrible hours (12 hr Shifts, 6-6), no loyalty to hard workers. A lot of "temp"-turnaround. Feigning management. I was hired as a "^ Month" Temp... worked there for 1 YR 1/2... still no offer of a position... healthcare... salary, etc. These folks were going through 20-30 new people a week at that plant... and I worked there for OVER a year with no "Thanks" or X-Mas bonus, Vacation Time.. etc... When sales we're going down, they fired me as the LAST remaining temp... but it was still shitty.

    Advice to Management

    Learn something about technology... not just manufacturing. Allow a little "outside the box" thinking once in a while, and things just MIGHT run a little smoother. Learn phrases: Employee relations, Human Resources, Constitution... et.al.

    I worked at Benchmark Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fixed working hours and usually will be able to leave on time. That is roughly all the plus point that this company has to offer.

    Cons

    Very minimum salary adjustment year over year. Lack of team leadership, most of the time you will need to figure out how things work in the company via trial and error.
