    I have been working at Gerber Technology full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    As a long term employee, Gerber has been an excellent place to work. They provide a technically challenging work environment where employees can personally make a difference.

    Cons

    The company runs a little too lean, so there is always a lot to do. If you are scared of working it would not be a good company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees know much more about how to solve problems than you think they do.

    I worked at Gerber Technology full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay.

    Cons

    The direct manager of this department is horrible every day is a dice roll as to what you are walking in to attitude wise. the manager does not have a general understanding of what the job entails, belittles their employees and discusses other coworkers issue with you and others. Constantly micro manages and offers no positive suggestions or feedback and in turns questions every move you make. There has been many complaints...

    Advice to Management

    Do something about the direct management issue that has been ongoing for years. There will continue to be a turnover do to this.

    I have been working at Gerber Technology full-time

    Pros

    There are some good front line employees doing their best under extremely constrained circumstances.

    Cons

    In our group, there is no real leadership (vision and inspiration) only management (command and control). The culture is basically do as you are told. Suggestions and recommendations by employees and even results of engagement surveys seem to be ignored. Employees are disengaged and focused solely on their salary and looking forward to the weekends (even though some managers still send all night/all weekend emails)....

    Advice to Management

    A bad boss can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to under perform, or worse, flee while the remainder to lose all motivation. A boss sets the tone. There is nothing like having a boss who genuinely cares about their team. They make the working experience so much better. They support, empower, motivate and appreciate their employees. Employees will be willing to do more and give more. It's...

      Pros

      Current ownership cares about creating a strong company as much as delivering results. The management team is new but working well together and listening to employees.

      Cons

      Change is tough and everyone needs to understand the plan and how they fit into the future of the company.

      Advice to Management

      Over communicate the plan, seek employee input and help everyone be part of the solution forward.

      I worked at Gerber Technology part-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Gerber working environment was laid back and friendly. The workflow was really good and I like the fact that the processes were very well organized especially the shared online knowledge base.

      Cons

      They ended up outsourcing their help desk to India which caused a few people to lose their jobs.

      Advice to Management

      The people is part of what brings value to the company. So, when you have really good staff that bring really good value, you keep them around.

      Pros

      Travel, if you planned your work day right you could be done early. Hands off style management

      Cons

      so many little things here and there really did it for me. Most of the time it was just the consistent change of processes that would often lead to issues with management.

      Pros

      Great working atmosphere. Casual but challenging. Great place to start off your career with available engineers who have been in the work force for 20+ years on average.

      Cons

      Management seems to be up in the clouds.

      Advice to Management

      Hire Mid-level employees to fill the gap. Compensate appropriately to hold onto younger employees.

      Pros

      Was a great company with outstanding employees who cared about the company's business.

      Cons

      Vector capital had no clue what they bought and didn't understand the business. Just interested in selling for a profit, all they have managed to do is damage the brand and make the company less valuable.

      Advice to Management

      Get a clue, find someone who has a clue!
