Pros

Well-run administratively;
Better than average pay and benefits for a small company;
HR issues are handled competently and professionally;
Good opportunity to learn from some of the best engineers in the industry.

Cons

Horrid VP of Engineering! He's your best friend if you know how to kiss up, but that is all. He's very chummy with employees while face to face. But I've sat in meetings listening to him needlessly blast employees who five minutes earlier he was best buds with. Then afterward he'll lecture an engineer who just came up with a fantastic design about how he did it better, faster and cheaper 20 years ago in Brazil. Gimme a break!

Advice to Management

Can the VP of Engineering, the only thing I've seen him do a good job of is offending the entire senior engineering staff and make up lengthy stories about how he invented anything and everything in the RF industry, and even things not in the RF industry such as sliced bread and canned tomato juice.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were good, holidays and vacation. Office space was acceptable. Central location to the Los Angeles area, good freeway access.

    Cons

    Leadership, lack of respect for employees. Had a high turnover in key postions. Instead of getting to the root of the issues, let people go and start over with a new team. It never worked.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so quick to react to hearsay. Really look at Engineering and try to correct issues at the front end instead of back end when it is much harder.
