    I have been working at Intermec Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Leadership in the 90's was excellent. Belief in the people and support of the people was a major reason for the outstanding culture.

    Cons

    Leadership has changed hands so many times there is no continuity left to the culture.

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Friendly professional staff, (still) good intellectual assets - people from bottom to the top were committed to product quality and customer satisfaction; eager to make the best products possible.

    Cons

    Sluggish response to new market opportunities, wasted intellectual potential.

    Advice to Management

    More proactive, less formal valuation of human assets would make this company more successful.

    Pros

    Intermec was a small company feel. Benefits were competitive relative to similiar companies in the area. The people are really nice and savvy, this is certainly a pro.

    Cons

    Purchased and sold too many times while I was there, creating different strategic directions. Changed managers too many times as well.

    Advice to Management

    None
