    Pros

    Was decent place for a while.. then management and whom one reports to changed. Broken promises started.

    Cons

    Disgusting CO. Full of liars and broken promises. Started after Curley , Larry and Moe joined late 2015. Co crumbled.
     CO in the Red for 15 years. Sounds like great job security. Promised NO more management layers and to reducce management layers, what happens? Lay off's happened and hired more layers of management!!
    If you are in the soccer league they play in the evenings you'll be sure to be OK and get your bonus.
    Working on products that no customers want. We couldn't even keep a customer we were paying them to use.
    Always doing the quick fix to survive.
    Not a good environment.

    Advice to Management

    Best friends stick together we get that. As managers and VPs you are to look past your friendships. Not fooling anyone. Karma does come around.
    Stop working on products that no one wants..
    Scattered brains in corner office,C level always switching priorities every week.

    I worked at Intelligent Mechatronic Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some good people working there.

    Cons

    Executives are delusional and don't value people. They keep losing good people and turnover rate is increasing -- for good reason. Not a pleasant atmosphere. Demands for working overtime are excessive.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people.

    Pros

    If you are desperate and have nowhere else to go, you may work here while you find something better.
    If you are smart and capable, you should be able to find something better elsewhere.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing. Basir should go back to being a full time professor and quit wasting everyone's time and money.

    Advice to Management

    Just stop. Nobody is getting fooled into thinking you're a "real" technology company.

    Pros

    This role was very useful in helping me get to where I want to be today with the skills and process based learning I gained

    Cons

    I left because of the management in the Support department. The initial management was great but a new manager came in and it tore apart the company culture

    Value your people and don't try to manipulate them into doing something for the bottom line or your own confidence.
