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

    Pros

    Great people work here. Very generous PTO policy. They do try to offer a good work/life balance, although that is unrealistic for anyone who is customer facing.

    Cons

    Communication can always use improvement.

    I have been working at Forsythe Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Career growth, good pay, decent benefits, great co-workers!

    Cons

    The annual FUEL event could have been a lot better. No one wants to go at all. There's a reason for that. Invest more in the event that is supposed to attract and bring together all the engineers together!

    Advice to Management

    There's one manager that's working with a lot of employees. He does a great job, but I think he's stretched pretty thin.
