Disapproves of CEO

Pros

In a bad economy, its a job. The air conditioning works great on hot summer days. Reasonably hi-tech assembly line. Small company trying to grow into a larger company.

Cons

Company practices bait and switch hiring. Job title, definition and duties change after hire. Compensation well below average. Questionable ethics rampant in all aspects of business.

Company develops uTCA supporting hardware, not uTCA payloads. The Company including their website will confuse you with hi-tech nature of the work prior to being hired. The company just builds the boards, nothing else. The Company will tell you they are using the latest processors, FPGAs, etc., but they are just soldering them on the board for a customer, not actually using the processors, FPGAs, etc..

Development working environment is chaotic, antiquated, obfuscated and entrenched beyond redemption. Management is also entrenched, far behind in development practice with no understanding of modern methods or even understanding of any method! Nothing is written down so deniability is easy.

Management will treat you like an idiot that must be micromanaged constantly. ANY disagreement with managers appears to be grounds for termination. Watch out!

Management constantly talks 'smack' about past hires that didn't 'work out' as an intimidation technique. However after working in the company, I suspect the past hires were competent but were unable to perform at the reduced level of Vadatech's "standards".

Advice to Management

Join the 21st century or even the late 20th century. If you legitimately want to improve, try to understand that there may be much better ways of doing things than what you are doing. Just because you are unfamiliar with them doesn't mean there aren't better ways of doing anything. You are hiring to try and make changes and improve, why not listen to who you hire?

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and state of the art products makes Vadatech a leading edge company that most would want to be a part of.

    Cons

    CEO is sole designer. If something were to happen to him the company would collapse. Designs are innovative yet not thoroughly reviewed lending to repeated problems. CEO has total control and listens to no one. Lots of promises are made but very few are kept.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down. Listen to those you surround yourself with. Don't make false promises you have no intention of keeping.

    Pros

    Vadatech is at the forefront of uTCA and ATCA development. The vision and direction of Vadatech is its most alluring quality.

    Cons

    The vision of the company is a deception and the underlying technology is the bait. 'Just-in-time' engineering of touted mission critical products and applications is beyond unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to the highest bidder and seek therapy to cope with the perversion of a company you've collectively created.
