    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth potential. Change in corporate culture to the positive is evident.

    Cons

    Fast paced, can lead to too many changes, need to stay the course a bit more.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to weed out the stagnant people, who don't seem to want to embrace the new culture, or new approach!

    Pros

    I've been working at Logic PD going on 2 years now and just like any company, has issues with management but I think the real issue arises from people being checked out and not putting in the effort. It's hard to adapt change when everyone around is negative and pessimistic about the future.

    I have really nothing bad to say because it comes with the territory of having "agile" manufacturering or at least trying. It won't be same things every day, that's not the industry we are in.

    Coworkers are good. Management is trying. You still get paid. What's the problem ? Just roll with the punches

    Cons

    Stop crying and slandering the company because you are not invested in it. If you think there are better companies then go to them and stop dragging your feet.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in the people and appreciation would be my only suggestion. They try but I think more emphasis should be given.

    Pros

    Wide variety of interesting projects.
    Cross-functional design teams.
    In-house manufacturing expertise.
    Established design process.
    Merit-based opportunities for advancement.
    Flexible work location.
    Competitive salary and benefits.

    Cons

    High turnover in recent years.
    Inconvenient commute to Eden Prairie location from north and east suburbs.
    Volatile nature of contract work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the employees you have. It takes time to backfill when people leave.

    Pros

    The people, first of all, are great. There were bad ones that have left. Numbers (income, profit, etc.) are growing. Awesome health insurance.

    My previous supervisor left because of someone in upper management who was, let's say, "causing discomfort." There were a few others who left because of that same person. That person is now gone, and the mood has improved a lot. Management is spending money to improve the facility, including more efficient equipment, as well as some incentives to employees.

    Cons

    Residual fear of the unknown, as there had been a layoff last year, and a number of people left of their own. A recent merger of two locations has some people expressing discomfort with the seating arrangements. A third location is closing this spring.

    Advice to Management

    It is good to hear about the improvements. Keep employees informed about progress (as you have been doing).

    Pros

    We have a nice plant in the SW suburbs, close but not too close, to businesses and lunch options, right off the interstate. We have a lot of good people for coworkers -- many new, but also more people than usual (IME) who've been here for 20-30 years and want to stay. The company is emerging from some trying times with direction and significant capital investment.

    Cons

    The company has down-sized three or four times in the past three years and lost a lot of institutional know-how. Sometimes this is nice for getting a fresh start on processes, but it's often a real handful, trying to figure out how things are supposed to be. Due to facility consolidation, the plant is over-populated right now and a bunch of cube-space had to be converted to higher-density workspace that's a little noisy and crowded.

    Advice to Management

    There has been a sense that management undervalues human resources. They should keep in mind that we are valuable strategic assets.

    Pros

    Many very talented and experienced colleagues.

    There are about 4 high-caliber, experienced, very competent, functional leaders doing a great job fixing and implementing much-needed changes that will improve the overall execution by late 2017 or more realistically by early 2018

    Cons

    2016 was a banner year great business strategy, revenue results, and a clear LT strategy in place. In sharp contrast 2017, is characterized by a toxic work environment, created by constant churn, organizational changes and absolute lack of a coherent business strategy and accountability from the senior executive team.

    Very low morale, no credibility on the executive management and the operational problems are endemic. We continue to lose the key talent and key business capabilities that made 2016 and the future a are walking out the door with those leaving the organization. I am also leaving !

    Advice to Management

    It is about time for the CEO to start providing realistic revenue goals to the B of Directors, supported by a solid multi-year strategy. The company is dying (being killed) under this short-term focused, and tactical oriented leadership. aimed at achieving unrealistic revenue and performance objectives. Capable and experienced senior- executive leadership and a strong board supported turn-around strategy is badly needed before is too late.

    I worked at Logic PD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Back in the day, there was a very talented, experienced staff and an innovative, dynamic workload. The North Loop office was nice.

    Cons

    I've heard the engineering staff is sitting on their hands. It's only a matter of time before they enter bankruptcy. I've had many talks with former colleagues about The Real Strategy of running the company into the ground. Surely there has to be more to the story than ineptitude? Alas, like Trump, there is no well conceived strategy. Only arrogance, bluster, and incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    Retire. Perhaps start a lawn mowing business.

    Poorest executive team management, starting with CEO, ever seen.
    Case study in how to drive a company into the ground.
