Pros

The excellent benefits, particularly paid time off, as well as the friendly environment and small-company atmosphere. Everyone is easygoing, and management is generally understanding. Regardless of what position you work in, you are made to feel like you're a part of every aspect of the company, like you're really accomplishing something. There are numerous company events and meetings that are fun to attend and result in everything from free food to prizes.

Cons

There is little to no room for advancement within the company. The experience there does not add much to the progression of one's career, and the raises are low even for the best employees. It is a decent company to work at, but not for along period of time.

Advice to Management

To consider giving more opportunities for internal advancement as well as more frequent performance reviews.

    I have been working at Primera Technology, Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Innovative company with strong branding/marketing.

    Management tries to keep everyone informed about product developments, marketing strategies and other information at a once each month company meeting. Monthly drawings for Wild, Twins and Vikings tickets along with occasional free food keeps employees coming to the meetings.

    CEO and VP's are involved on a daily basis in the operations of the company. They seem to have a good feel for our varied markets.

    Company seems well-positioned for growth with lots of new things happening lately.

    Not a lot of "fluff" here. There's a nice exercise room in the building that gets a lot of use but the company kind of draws the line at that. People are here to work, get well compensated for success and progress in their experiences, knowledge and career development. It's actually quite refreshing.

    Pretty much everyone in the company is on some kind of a commission plan for achieving their monthly goals.

    Cons

    Smaller companies like this make it more difficult to move upwards. However, Primera has lots of long-term employees (20+ years!) who have done just that. Jobs here are what you make them. With a strong work ethic and a desire to succeed you will likely be rewarded. New opportunities mostly come along with new products in new markets which happens frequently around here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on innovating like you've done for decades. It's what is needed to keep the company growing and making new career opportunities available.
