    Great company, stable business, cares about its employees in Rocky Hill

    Feb 4, 2020 - Engineer in Rocky Hill, CT
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you have good skills and are really engaged in the work, there are great opportunities to grow. Some newer employees want to go from newbie to manager in a few years but that's just not realistic. Those with more reasonable expectations will be happy here, building the depth and breadth of experience necessary to move up when opportunities present themselves.

    Cons

    There are strengths and weaknesses to both big and small-sized companies. While not having as many opportunities as a 2000+ employee company, the company doesn't have a lot of bureaucracy. Management is readily accessible and open communication is a cornerstone of the company's success.
