    I worked at Freedom Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Products assist the visually challenged.

    Cons

    The Purchasing Department in St. Petersburg is in constant conflict with other departments. The Purchasing Department is poorly managed. Their ongoing attempts to add an additional staff member to their “team” has been a revolving door, as they have found it difficult to find anyone who will go along with their tactics. Additionally, their methods of dealing with suppliers are questionable at best.

    Cons

    I worked at Freedom Scientific

    Pros

    Great mission to help blind people. Great products, well designed. Lots of wonderful people there, most of them worker-bees. Great leadership at the top, as the newer company president seems very good. Great benefits for a company this size.

    Cons

    Middle management is usually confused. Those who are not confused are busy building their own little kingdoms, and do not take input from anyone else. There are often undertones of bias. Pay is very low, with inconsistent reviews.
