Pros

Mr. Kaylie, the founder and CEO, is a brilliant engineer and business man.
The quality of the product line and providing excellent customer service are unsurpassed.
Family environment where supervisors and managers are generous about mentoring and training.
Only the best of the best are hired.
Human Resources cares about the employees.
Tough environment but one that pushes you to do your best.
The senior engineers are talented and inspiring.
Everyone works hard and for the benefit of the company.

Cons

The employee benefits need improvement. Employees pay too much for the medical insurance.
There are not enough holidays or time off. Work life balance is not respected. Too much importance placed on attendance.

Advice to Management

Mr. Kaylie needs to employ more senior managers who he trusts to make important decisions. He cannot do it all - the company is too big.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    a. Excellent learning environment, but only for fresh graduates. If you are experienced, go for other employers.
    b. Good opportunity to get exposed to difficult tasks under tight deadlines.
    c. If you can do fairly good here, you will be guaranteed successful everywhere.

    Cons

    1. Very low salary, join only if good starting salary
    2. Company wide salary raise of 25-30 cents given after 3+ years
    3. Health insurance very expensive, employer pays very little portion of health benefit.
    4. No more 401k match since 2006-07
    5. Very less vacation days. Only 10 per year. And it is hell of a task to get it approved.
    6. Sick days are very limited.
    8. Heavy snow storm? Roads/trains tracks snow-covered? Still come to work! No "excuses"
    9. Late by 1 second? Get 15 minutes salary deducted from your paycheck
    10. One man show in the company. All decisions are made by President.
    11. Management uses curse words a lot, even to senior employees

    Advice to Management

    1. Make management decentralize
    2. Make a board of governors like similar employers, finish one man show.
    3. Give incentives to employees like bonuses, health benefits, 401k.
    4. Give salary raises every year
    5. Help employees to have work-home balanced life.
