    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.

    I have been working at FLIR full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Innovative and fast-growing company. Locations in many parts of the world. Great brand-recognition. Very strong market position in its industry.

    Cons

    Extensive travel for sales professionals, challenging work schedule for engineers as well

    Advice to Management

    Equity incentives are somewhat less than other technology companies, including Silicon Valley software companies, etc., and this should be improved. It will increase employee focus on long-term capital appreciation and growth.

    I worked at FLIR full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and salaries at FLIR are well above "competitive", attracting and retaining the best talent. Their products are cutting-edge technology, scaled for the commercial and consumer markets, so there's always something new to ooh and ahh over! The Goleta campus includes an employee deli that is open to workers from other local companies.

    Cons

    At times, oversight from corporate leadership in Oregon seemed too bureaucratic and limiting for the creative energies at the Commercial Vision Systems Division in Goleta (Santa Barbara), California.

    Advice to Management

    Continue building your employer brand by maintaining your sharp focus on the benefits, salary and recognition needs of your outstanding workers. Remember to allow as much autonomy to your individual divisions (like the Commercial Vision Systems Division), in order to foster creativity and a sense of ownership among your employees.

    I worked at FLIR full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    FLIR has a strong ethical culture. There is a focus on delivering quality, innovative products and superior customer service. I am also aware that FLIR may appropriate choices when faced with challenging situations.

    Cons

    FLIR is a finance-driven company, often to a fault. The focus on the bottom line often resulted in decisions with significant adverse consequences to former employees.

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance is important.
