    I have been working at HUSCO International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    HUSCO has a very unique environment. It is very fast-paced and a bit overwhelming at times, but with all that responsibility comes great opportunity for achievement. When it does get overwhelming, any of the engineers around will help out if you need it.

    Cons

    if you can't prioritize on your own, it can be a bit much. Know your deadlines and stick to them.

    Advice to Management

    Help with priority management.

    I worked at HUSCO International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had a very good job doing what I do best and was able to self direct my career as I was in a unique position in the company.

    Cons

    New manager came into my department and never understood exactly what I did and did not see the value to the company I represented. Hence my job function was eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you know what you have and how to best use those assets. So much more can be accomplished by treating people as people instead of rating them as profit centers.

    Pros

    Laid back environment.
    Good people to work with.
    Interesting projects.

    Overall it is a pretty good company to work for.

    Cons

    There are too many people in management positions who shouldn't be there.
    HUSCO is generally slow to promote or give more than a few percent yearly pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Invest into new tests racks across the board. No, it will not help your REAP goals, but it is a must for entering the 21st century of manufacturing.
