    Pros

    Prior to the acquisition by Honeywell, Intermec was by far the best company a professional could work for. Quotas were realistic and fair, work/balance life was a big part of the company's success.

    Cons

    None to share - do your job and no micromanaging.

    Pros

    Company's technology resources re unmatched in the industry. Having the patents on so many products is such an advantage.

    Cons

    Working environment is unethical and demoralizing. Not many of the people there are happy or fulfilled.

    Advice to Management

    Ehthics in management should be improved. So many of the managers are unhappy and make decisions to improve their own situations and not the company.

    Pros

    People, products and compensation were all good. Good support of work life balance for sales, good opportunity to work remotely and flexibility.

    Cons

    Management does not focus on the bottom line. Too many consultants and others from HP joining the org with no AIDC industry experience.

    Advice to Management

    Slim down your org and get rid of some of the outside consultants. Get some good marketing people and generate some leads for your sales teams. Have meaningful reviews regularly.

    Pros

    Good company. Good technology. Great people

    Cons

    Technology is being challenged by consumer products. Specifically smart phones and tablets. Android is becoming more prevalent over Microsoft.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the people. The engineers made a difference in what we could offer our customers. And the system engineers in the field made things work well at the customers.

    I worked at Intermec Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was a textbook hi-tech company in the 90s and 2000s while I was there (employed there two times during that period separated by a period of about 6 years). Plenty of good engineers, a few good managers. Project management was executed well. Engineering followed good practices for PDP. All was well except...

    Cons

    ... as with all other tech companies in this timeframe, all manufacturing was exported to Asia. Intermec might have gone to the extreme. The large manufacturing lines eventually were empty, and the empty space was surrounded inside the building by ... a chain-link fence? I never could understand that part of it, except to perhaps nail home to the few remaining engineering staff that "Intermec won, you lost." It didn't have to be a zero sum game, but that's how they handled it.

    After the second layoff, I moped around for about 24 hours. Then I took things into my own hands and started a highly successful consulting business. Best thing I ever did.

    Advice to Management

    "Management?" I didn't know things were managed there. Huh.
