    Pros

    supportive top management for employees to engage in their local communities. Acknowledgement of external volunteer efforts by those who give back to their communities.

    Cons

    As in all big companies some will promote based on ethnicity in lieu of actual talent or results and actual performance.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the outcome of projects and not what is indicated in some reporting. This can be difficult to do but the facts will far outweigh the fake reporting.

    N/A - I don't regret accepting this position over other positions at all

    there are generational differences and thoughts on how to do business. The shift toward Digital Industrial is probably not moving as fast as they would like. They will get there as the new talent will shift the cultural pendulum

    Pros

    Good benefits, good salary, good location, up and coming solar industry can provide meaningful work. Lots of smart engineers originally from past acquisitions.

    Cons

    Middle managers were not qualified to lead a high tech product or company. They seem to come from low tech backgrounds. Thus every decision by committee since manager had no clue.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified middle managers with proven success in electronics manufacturing.
