The co-workers are all very friendly, treat each other like family member. Laid back working environment, don't request mandatory overtime.
Do not have big space to grow technically, lacked senior engineers' guidence. A lot of time need to learn by yourself, which wasn't really a bad thing. If you are a self learner, you can definitely learn a lot on your own. If you expect to learn from the senior engineers, you probably will be disappointed. Since a lot of high frequency circuit design knowledge comes from years' of experience, it's really sometime for the seniors to tell you why they did it this way. They just knew from their experience.
Advice to Management
Management can support a little more in providing employees with job related training courses. Update necessary softwares to support engineering designs.
I have been working at Micronetics full-time (More than a year)
There is opportunity to take on various roles and learn a broad range of skills. Everyone is close-knit and friendly. The culture is quite laid back and relaxed (sometimes too much so). We were recently acquired by Mercury Computer Systems and are currently undergoing re-structuring. Hopefully we will take advantage of the benefits and resources of a large corporation while still maintaining the feel of a small company. Also a new first-class facility is in the plans within the next year or so.
A lot of times the vision and leadership of upper management is vague and counterproductive. Aside from annual reviews there isn't much structured career development or training, so what you get out of the company is truly dependent on what you put in (this can be good and bad). The facility isn't that impressive.
Advice to Management
Develop a more cohesive plan for future growth and goals. Stop signing up for programs that require hours of engineering R&D only to sell one or two pieces.
