    Pros

    RAD had a family feel to it, and amazingly, many employees had been there at least 10 years or more

    Cons

    I often had to work overtime, which was unpaid, to meet deadlines, which constantly kept moving, usually backwards but not always

    Advice to Management

    Employees don't like it when they get paid overtime and then are changed to a position that has the same salary but has unpaid overtime

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at RAD data communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had a family atmosphere. Good health coverage. Dedicated and friendly employees.

    Cons

    Lack of decisive management. Failure and mediocrity rewarded and promoted. Upper management focus on concealing failures and finding excuses, rather than promoting the business. Sub standard salaries

    Advice to Management

    It's time to take decisive action and commitment and mange your employees, rather than your bosses.
