    I have been working at Mini-Circuits full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    VP & Team Leader of MPE is one of the best leaders & bosses I ever had in my career so far (very intelligent, knowledgeable & approachable person). He drives you & give projects & exposure to all different department including cross-geographical & cross-functional projects. Lots of Hands on experience. Always loaded with multiple projects (No projects are same & therefore work is not monotonous).
    Co-workers are amazing, very friendly & welcoming. Culture among co-workers is truly mesmerizing.

    Cons

    Read a lot negative reviews about management but I myself can't comment on it as I never had any bad experience so far.

    Advice to Management

    Salary structure should be per industry & city standards. Opportunity to switch roles in cross functional areas such that one can get better understanding of how company runs & works. This will help an individual to broaden its horizon.

    Pros

    You do get recognized and you do get rewarded if you are truly passionate about what you do and if you stay loyal to the company. It is also a great learning experience no matter what department you belong to. Extremely high paced and demanding environment with constantly changing priorities make it easy for you to do well after Mini-Circuits while pursuing other opportunities.

    Cons

    -Procedures, procedures, procedures.....
    - The amount of paperwork you deal with on a daily basis is overwhelming
    - Lack of communication between departments

    Pros

    Good with hiring diverse people with different nationalities and with no experience and language issues are handled well .

    Cons

    facilities supervisor/ production manager is in control of all things done only if its done his way , not to the companies benefit. Wants personal gain and not for the company but for himself. Has all of the staff feeling threatened so they wont lose their jobs to feed their families. No benefits at all for the employees that they can afford. for a 500 million dollar company that is unfair. NO advancement in the company for people that have experience and knowledge. Dont give out idea!! if you arent related or in the "inner circle" you will not advance. Not a job you can depend on growing in .

    Advice to Management

    Put people in charge that are qualified and that know how to handle humans. Even if they have been with the company a long time you should review them and seek new management that treats people with respect and give, ThE RIGHT employees the opportunity to advance in the company and that dont offer issues in the workplace.

    Pros

    Mini-Circuits is a customer-centric organization that is positioned in the industry as the world’s preferred supplier of RF, IF and microwave devices. The company takes it guiding principles to heart. These include: embracing a culture of quality, accountability, dedication to meeting customer needs, and team work. The company’s Executive Management places a high priority on service excellence. To that end, departmental audits take place regularly and all processes and procedures are documented and followed. Because of its attention to quality, the company is regularly honored with industry and customer awards for service excellence and on-time shipments.

    The Executive Management team is always seeking new ways to enhance both its customer and employee relationships and foster an entrepreneurial culture of involvement and participative management. The company is also one that celebrates cultural diversity. Employees represent over 50 different countries, so you’ll have an exceptional opportunity to work with professionals from cultures around the globe. Also noteworthy, is the company’s client list: It reads like a “Who’s Who” of the world’s top-ranked technology companies.

    Members of the workforce who go the extra distance in carrying out their jobs and those who do things to enhance the workplace are regularly recognized through a variety of awards programs. Recently initiatives have been introduced to enhance the perks for employees. This includes the addition of commuter and entertainment benefits and improvements to the health care plan. This past summer, changes were also introduced to the 401K plan, allowing members to participate after only 3 months of service, significantly shortening the waiting period to enroll. There is a lot of change taking place within the company to enrich the workplace and attract top quality talent.

    This is an exciting period of cultural evolution and transition, making it an ideal time to come on board and contribute to the company’s growth as you build your career..

    Cons

    South Brooklyn location is somewhat congested for driving but location is accessible by mass transit.
