      Great Company, New Regime tough but fair

      Pros

      The company has changed over the last two years since I started working here years ago. The new regime, specifically in manufacturing, has been putting new policies and procedures in place which is helping move our company from a small, family owned business to a mid-large sized corporation. It was tough for me to accept at first, as what I had come to know was changing drastically. The new factory manager told us he had an open door policy and to bring up any concerns. After speaking with him personally, in what he called a 1 on 1? he explained the his vision and mission to me. It was refreshing to finally have some transparency, but conversations like this need to happen more often with more people. The Pros: People are held accountable for their actions and performance Development path for Technicians Much better training system Opportunities for improvement, but you need to make it known that you want to advance Work/Life Balance is great Pay has gotten much better Transparency has gotten much better

      Cons

      New Management has high expectations of their, which has been difficult to adjust to for tenured employees. Benefits are below average Loss of Small company culture

      Pros

      a very good work-life balance, however, when the perks comes, I worked till 11pm in order to catch the deadline. Overall good working environment. Good leadership from the above.

      Cons

      benefits are kinda average. office culture is ok, from my experience, no much office politics, and everyone just trying to make the project work and make profit.

      Pros

      Flexible systems within manufacturing, transparency to learn from very talented individuals, collaborative environment, work-life balance is great compared to global companies, and compensation is reflective of your ability to negotiate.

      Cons

      Find your HS clique. Overtime may be tough for production individuals.

      About drinking from the firehose and firefighting

      Jun 14, 2008 - Engineering Manager in Livermore, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Technology is very good and unique, work in general is interesting and dynamic, very talented and capable technical people. Although work load may not allow it at present, management is supportive of work-life balance as a principal. Fundamentally in a good niche market with high long term potential

      Cons

      Scrambling to regain market share, many parallel technical efforts being pushed without adequate staffing and resources - too hectic and dynamic. Attrition is getting to be high, and in a place where systems are not in place, that is a significant loss of know-how, making it difficult for the persons remaining to carry on. Company grew too fast for its own good. Company prefers to getting outsiders (from more established companies) for key leadership positions rather than growing employees from within.
