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

    I have been working at Planar Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, decent PTO (though not accrued), well-known company, interesting products

    Cons

    Cronyism, lack of effective management, sailing without a rudder, not many perks left except for paycheck

    Advice to Management

    It's too late for advice - they need to vacate. Keeping home theater division this long has become the albatross around Planar's neck. Besides layoffs, not sure if activist investor can help to right this sinking ship...
