    I worked at Matrikon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Matrikon was a great place to work and grow through it's growth phase. They were good about keeping people on between projects and allowing personal development, usually in the guise of development of demos for sales.

    Cons

    I left due to a family move just as they were purchased by Honeywell and it seems like almost everyone I knew there has since has left.

    Advice to Management

    Investment in your people was a strength.

    Pros

    People are great to work with and easy going. Great environment and a lot of opportunity for growth (experience and position).

    Cons

    Changes happen slowly and through many people. Management needs to make quicker decisions and fill vacancies in the company so that productivity increases.
