      I have been working at Evertz Microsystems for more than 5 years

      Pros

      It is interesting and challenging work, especially when you first start at the company.

      Cons

      If the Upper management can save $50 on ANYTHING they will do it, being it sending you on a flight with 3 stop overs rather than direct. They may you feel like they are doing you a favor paying you overtime. No employee review. Projects are very reactive. lots of people leaving due to all of the above.

      I worked at Evertz Microsystems full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Innovative engineering, brush with famous shows / venues

      Cons

      Low pay. Abuse of customers. Abuse of employees. Arrogant management. Lack of respect for fellow empoyees. CHEAP, cheap cheap mindset.

      Advice to Management

      Stop abusing employees. Pay expenses in a timely fashion. Pay overtime when it's justified. Stop walking away from jobs at 80% complete. Acutally out your customers first. Get your documentation and source code management into some kind of searchable repository - not six seperate systems.

      Advice to Management

      Reimburse expenses promptly pay overtime where legally required by US law before you get sued implement a metrics-based bonus system - not managerial whim - try peer review ! allow subordinates to anonymously review their direct superiors Stop allowing middle management throw profanity at employees implement a decent code tracking system enforce version control

        Pros

        Some of the coworker are nice.

        Cons

        Work is piled on those with too much, while others are doing nothing. Pay does not reflect how much you do. The last time workers tried to unionize, they fired all of the people organizing it.

        Advice to Management

        Sufficiently pay you workers so can live remotely close to your company.
