"Great company"

Current Employee - Product Builder in Maple Grove, MN
Current Employee - Product Builder in Maple Grove, MN
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

Job security (as a product builder)
Lots of Vacation time
Friendly supervisors (I've had at least 5)
Diversity of employees

Cons

Lots of 6 day workweeks (rarely 7)
Can be difficult to get the exact days off you want (only a certain amount of people per line)

Advice to Management

Continue in doing what you do. Perhaps find a way so that so many people are not forced to work Saturdays when they don't want to work Saturdays. I understand that is challenging in a production setting.

  1. "Great products, industry going through change and that's reflected in the company's direction"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    the company still attracts great people, who are fun, talented and care about the products they make. Flexibility in work fairly good. Great products, its rewarding to see those that receive the products and see how their lives are improved.

    Cons

    not alot of reward or recognition at individual employee level. Decisions made in Corporate based on short term financial reasons, there is a continual fear of job instability, lay-offs and lack of career potential so that hampers employees too--too bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the individual employees, there is talent, knowledge and passion that could help contribute, solve problems and drive success. There is a feeling among current and past employees that the top executives don't really care about the individual contributors.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Large company, good benefits, relatively high pay

    Cons

    Upper management is not familiar or comfortable with software-based products, especially embedded products. Also, management is short-term focused and not really willing to invest in people. They would much rather invest in new companies.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people. Give them a long-term reason to stay.
