    Pros

    Company gave me the opportunity to learn different job duties within the corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Loyalty to an employee should be given right back.

    I have been working at Excelitas Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent, ambitious, top performing employees thrive with this company by being rewarded promotions within, salary increases, and projects that are both challenging and exciting. With this organization I am able to maintain a Work/Life balance, there is very little micromanagement, and I work with a great team of competent and driven colleagues. The culture is welcoming and fun, positive office environment - everyone here is a true professional in every department. Employees at this organization are really good at what they do, so team collaboration is welcomed!

    Cons

    I cannot find anything negative to say about my employment with this organization. The benefits are great (BlueCross PPO), compensation is market appropriate, incentives are rewarding. My only advice is for individuals who are just seeking any job, this is not the company for you and should seek employment else where. This company is custom tailored for ambitious and top performing employees in all departments.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications to employees regarding internal changes.
