    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Regular work hours 8-5, rarely have to work overtime
    - Fairly light workload
    - Many products / large catalog

    Cons

    - Other than CEO, management are cronies. Kiss up and kick down culture.
    - Rude, sometimes belittling managers, who run their own fiefdoms
    - Disorganized company
    - Unmotivated employees
    - Bureaucratic
    - Poor quality control, lots of angry customers

    - Most manufacturing done in China, which is a pain to coordinate / communicate with.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to value their employees and technology, rather than cut costs, cut pay and staff, and grow solely by acquisition. Too many disparate sites that are poorly run, lack focus and motivation, and run like private fiefdoms.

    I worked at Measurement Specialties part-time

    Pros

    Good coworkers, great boss, low-key work environment. People were respectful of differences and had a good sense of humor.

    Cons

    Was very slow at times and could be stressful. Some had issues getting a response from upper management about certain problems.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and take them into consideration when they have concerns about new procedures that upper management wants to implement.
