    I worked at Daktronics (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Learn real world experiences with opportunities to be mentored by front-line employees
    - Always encouraging learning
    - Student incentives for applicable classes
    - Flexible work schedule (depending on the position)
    - Variability in work assignments, ability to apply internally for different positions
    - Global company (travelling possible)
    - High visibility of products

    Cons

    - Pay lower than average
    - After making money hand over fist, they continue to struggle since the downturn
    - Coaching out(passive or active) is more likely for current employees that need mentoring
    - Few leadership opportunities because of stagnant growth
    - Many aspects of culture are unprofessional (HR doesn't help either)

    Advice to Management

    Management/HR needs to connect more with employees - there is an impression of rule by fear. You aren't immune to mistakes yourselves, be willing to be vulnerable. Show a bit more love to your employees than investors for a time - both will thank you, one over time. Don't delegate employee recognition - make it personal.
