    Pros

    The ability to tackle different tasks throughout the day and challenging work load. Room for growth in your position if you are willing to work hard. The fast moving environment allows one to learn quickly. Friendly colleagues who are willing to help out. Clean and organized building with a nice cafeteria on site. Employee discount on products.

    Cons

    Communication between departments sometimes creates a delay in feedback.

    Advice to Management

    A great place to work with minimal issues. Management should have more quarterly meetings to improve overall communication.

    Try to create more morale within your department.

    Pros

    Overall, PNY is a great company to work for with a culture unlike any other. From the moment you walk in, you definitely feel welcomed and wanted. Additionally, it allows for a casual dress code which is a huge benefit. Over the past four months of working here, I have learned an incredible amount. Coming in with no experience, I can now say that I understand a a lot about my field of study and everyone around me has helped me get to this point. I am able to sit in on important meetings, learn from my peers, and do things I never even knew about before. I love this company and it would be a pleasure to come back to work here in the future. I would definitely recommend this opportunity, and company, to my friends and family because of this very positive experience.

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any downsides other than not really having much communication with the other interns in other departments of the company. However, I was able to build very close relationships with the professionals within my department, which was equally as rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at PNY Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is still a few employees left there with knowledge in the work place and you can learn from, and have a heart with a helping hand. There is very slim left within the company.

    Cons

    Stay away! It's a big disappointment and you will learn the wrong way. It's not normal and a bunch of donkey's running the show.

    Advice to Management

    Learn and understand what that title means that you have.

    I worked at PNY Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Local management in San Jose believe in their people and projects.

    Cons

    Dishonest leadership.
    Nods and winks never turn into action. Get any and all compensation in writing!
    NJ manufacturing benefits for CA engineering employees. Way below standard.

    Advice to Management

    Stay out of the development business. Gadi does not understand the commitment and resources required to build IP, and does not appear to act in good faith. Stop saying, "I do what I say..." and then refusing to "say" what you will do. It's easy to "do" what you "say" if you refuse to voice any actual commitment.

    Pros

    Always some at first but after about a month you'll be miserable trust me. A lot of arrogance here. Not to mention playing favorites. Everyone new learns after time.

    Cons

    I would warn anyone about working here. It's toxic and unless you're upper management you'll be very unhappy. I should I have known from the interview!!

    Advice to Management

    Nothing
