  • This is a very disjointed company where everyone is afraid they may lose their job if they don't follow the lame instructions from upper management (in 5 reviews)

    I have been working at FLIR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Since joining FLIR 13yrs ago, I've been given the tools and environment to really grow in my career. The technology is really cool and the team I have worked with is driven and focused on serving our customers with top notch solutions. My management chain has always been fantastic!

    Cons

    FLIR is a fast paced, complex corporate structure; so sometimes it can feel overwhelming. But if you enjoy a high tech, dynamic environment, it can be an exhilarating opportunity.

    Pros

    Great technology, interesting collection of international customers. Ability to transfer within the company to other departments or division and try new roles (e.g. example of engineers moving to product management). Good civic involvement (charity donations and support for charity events). Excellent benefits. Good compensation. Company and divisions are small enough that you feel like you can impact stock price.

    Cons

    Usual high tech development with lack of staffing and too many projects. Company has somewhat of an identity crisis. Management would like employees to fully immerse themselves in their career (think high tech startup) but company isn’t quite there in terms of benefits (e.g. free meals for those working late). The decor for a number of the sites is outdated with nondescript low budget office furniture but fortunately management has recognized this and sites are slowly being updated and open areas/exercise facilities are being built

    Pros

    The opportunity to innovate and advance the state of the art is significant. The products we produce have positive impacts on people's lives. The people I work with are great. The benefits and compensation are competitive.

    Cons

    FLIR is spread out all over the US and world (the result of acquisitions). The different locations don't always collaborate as well as might be expected. Centralized services often make policies for the whole company that ignore significant differences between locations.

    Advice to Management

    The people who are responsible for centralized services should have to come onsite and interact meaningfully with their internal customers at least once a year for every major location.

    I worked at FLIR full-time

    Pros

    FLIR is the most established and trusted company in the infrared camera marketplace. The products are fun to sell, and they give you the freedom to create your routes along key strategic accounts. They also have great perks and benefits.

    Cons

    TSR territories covered multiple states, and travel is a must almost every week. It was a new position when it was created in 2014, and it was focused around a new company initiative of getting stocking displays in distribution stores. Stores mostly focused their in-store displays around lower priced commodities/consumables, and fighting for test and measurement space was difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep advancing the higher-end camera lines. Continuing to lower the price of infrared cameras could cheapen the brand.
