Pros

Good company with excellent products and an aggressive growth plan. The recent aquisitions of Runco and Vidikron have greatly enhanced the product offerings to the residential market and should boost the bottom line greatly.

Cons

Some of the management are known for running other display companies into the toilet. With the recent departure of Scott Hix this is hopefully no longer an issue. The biggest risk faced by Planar is the potential destruction of the Runco and Vidikron brand names. If these products are all just turned into different Planar models, without the emphasis on performance and brand discinction, this experiment is doomed.

Advice to Management

Don't run Runco and Vidikron into the ground

    Pros

    This is hands down one of the best companies to work for if you are in A/V and in sales.

The company has been showing nice profitable growth for a few years by leveraging their best in class digital signage products.

    As a publicly traded company there is constant aggressive growth expected.

    Keep doing what you're doing - try to offer more room for advancement in roles across the organization. Our marketing team needs help - our competitors are doing better than we are.
