    Pros

    Interesting and diverse work encompassing a wide range of technologies.
    Good team spirit and co- operation between co workers and departments.

    People work cohesively in spite of management not because of it. Some managers pit one Group against the others
    Reviews are not done in a timely manner or not at all, leaving workers to feel unappreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team as your subordinates do . Open lines of communication. Don't hide from problems, address them.

    Pros

    The products are superior to others within the same catagory. Customer base is loyal and consider it to be the best in the market.

    Cons

    Management does not respect the employee base. Their strategy of how they go to market puts them in a bad light with their distribution network.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time educating the end users and dealers, less time strong-arming distributors.
