    Pros

    Nice facilities, competitive salary, benefit and bonus package is good. NC facility has fitness center and cafeteria.

    Cons

    Constant re-organizations and realignment of business units, along with predictable cycles of layoffs and jobs being moved to China have left a demoralized and insecure workforce in place. There's a complete lack of focus, no long term plan, and the company never follows through with any of their initiatives or programs. We spend more time working on presentations for VP's than we do performing actual work. China's VP's value input from consultants more than their own management.

    Advice to Management

    Get off the desks and get into the field, talk to the people, stop with the egotistical PowerPoint reviews wasting everyone's time, and stop letting consultants run the company. We have no budget to hire talent, yet we pay consultants millions for obvious advice.
