Very profitable

Cons

Lack of communication from upper management
Local management hit and miss
No real clear vision of where the company wants to go
Too much rivalry between groups that hampers cohesiveness and communication

Advice to Management

Management really needs to find a way to communicate with it's staff at all locations. Cognex is a growing company with multiple locations that all have a significant role to play but they treat anyone who is not at the HQ like the whipping boy.

    Pros

    Quality company with innovative products, market leader in machine vision technology. Likely company and the intellectual property will keep increasing in importance as AI vision starts to become prevalent.

    Poor recycling program and break areas could have more than just coffee. Conference rooms could have better technology & features for more streamlined meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Work a little more on personnel development, training and providing advancement opportunities for staff. Business unit cross collaboration could be improved to find more overall company efficiency.
