    I have been working at North Atlantic Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A constantly growing, high-tech company right here on Long Island. There are numerous interesting projects going on right now, and even more on the horizon. Summer hours, flexibility, annual bonus, company contribution to 401k, paid winter shutdown, company picnic, and holiday party. I have also seen many examples of individuals receiving recognition for going above and beyond. Hard work does not go unnoticed. Also NAI is extremely accommodating to interns and those just starting out their careers.

    Cons

    As a growing company, the environment can be stressful at times. However, due to recent strategic changes from the CEO, senior management is now properly positioned to accommodate such rapid growth. The NAI team is ready to succeed and the future looks extremely bright!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the lines of communication open and solicit feedback from each other. Inevitably crises will occur. At those times, it is important to unite as a team and focus solely on resolving the problem. I have seen this happen firsthand and it was a tremendous experience. Bill, the CEO, is extremely engaged with employees and his door is always open. He is willing to discuss any issues you might be facing, and more importantly, take appropriate actions to resolve them.

    Pros

    Great people, exciting products and people oriented CEO. Paid holiday break, bonuses and other employees perks. Compensation was in line with market value. Solid growth during my entire time there. They have great products that their customer wants. I learned a lot there and was given the ability to fail or succeed without being micromanaged.

    Cons

    Rapid growth has created problems with organization not being able to keep up with the business at times. This was addressed by the CEO and there have been reorganizations in multiple departments to manage the business better.
    Personal problem was commute, which was why i left.

    Advice to Management

    I always felt comfortable there being able to fully express my thoughts either positively or negatively to management. I found that it might take some time, but management does respond and is listening to the employees. Bill, the CEO makes it his business to know employees by name and to speak with them whenever he can. All of the managers should follow Bill's lead with their teams.

    Pros

    Interesting products
    Summer hours - 10-hr. days with Fridays off
    nice people

    Cons

    Upper mgmt. is made up of amateurs. Too much infighting and conflicting direction causes tension and stress among employees. I/O division is favored. Power and instrument side of business are treated like stepchildren.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together or you will lose all valuable people. Get professional help. Respect all employees the same.
