    I have been working at Radyne full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I like the great team of people dedicated to being the best in their field. There is a real sense of passion for developing new processes, building quality machines and taking care of customers.

    Cons

    The communication between departments and with management could be improved to keep us on the same page and pulling in the same direction.

    Advice to Management

    Have more than 4 summer barbeques this year, it would be nice to have them once per week. We always have free burgers, brats, soda, chips etc. but how about mixing it up with BBQ Chicken and Ribs?

    Thanks for the suggestions! We are trying really hard to work on better communication between departments. We will also keep the ribs and chicken in mind for our next barbecue. Maybe you can help HR cook next time!

    I have been working at Radyne full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Radyne has been making a lot of efforts and has been making changes to create a workplace that everyone enjoys coming too. Its a small company with a family feel to it. You will learn to get to know everyone. A lot has changed since I started here. If you are a team player and a hard worker with a positive attitude you will be rewarded and recognized for your hard work. We get quarterly incentives and benefits...

    Cons

    There were some really disgruntled people that seemed to like glassdoor as the place to vent about things that weren't even real issues. We are doing awesome so far in 2018. I am really glad they seemed to have finally moved on. You will not go anywhere with a negative attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing your positive attitudes, it's contagious.

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Radyne

      Pros

      Promises made at interview were interesting. Technology is interesting, scale of the induction supplies impressive. Benefits are good and keep many people there who would prefer to leave.

      Cons

      Micromanagement by CEO with anger/rage and control issues. CEO stopped lawn care for a long time and has favored employees who get special treatment.

      Advice to Management

      Get a different CEO. Justin brings out the worst in people most of the time.

      I'm really sorry you feel this way. Radyne has never stopped our Lawn care. Radyne has someone come mow our lawn weekly and take care of shrubs and fertilizing as needed. Radyne takes pride the facilities and makes improvements to the landscaping as needed.

      Pros

      Plenty of parking since everyone is quitting.

      Cons

      People are quitting constantly. President of company only here through nepotism. Complete paranoid, incompetent control freak.

      Advice to Management

      Fire the real problem and good people will stay before Mortimer bankrupt the company by alienating all the customers and employees.

      I'm sorry you feel this way. The President does not write any reviews on Glassdoor. Radyne is doing great so far in 2018. We are meeting and exceeding many of our goals. As others laid off, we chose to keep our team together and put excess labor into new product development. This ...

      I have been working at Radyne full-time

      Pros

      It is a smaller company so you can get experience in many aspects of the company. There are interesting projects and can be fun at times to work there. Most of the managers have been there for a long time and still care about their employees. Health insurance is cheap but dental and eye are at cost.

      Cons

      THE CEO! I don’t know how to stress this enough, he will be the ruin of the company. He is impossible to work with because there is no working with him, only for him. Doesn’t matter what it is but he knows more than you and will talk over anyone, including customers, to tell them that. Even worse are his “innovative” ideas that drain any profits the company had made. The only reason he is even at the position is because...

      Get out while you still can. If you still truly like working at Radyne, then I’m happy for you. If not, leave, no one deserves the pain and headache of working under that CEO.

      Have faith. The market for capital equipment has been soft in the latter half of 2016. As others laid off, we chose to keep our team together and put excess labor into new product development. This along with healthcare increases (we pay 93%) and our increased vacation policy put ...

      Pros

      Beware of the fake posts on here from the CEO. They are just trying to make themselves look better than they are. You will find out as soon as you start working here that this place is a disaster! From the CEO that is an arrogant jerk to the employees that only care about themselves and will tattle on you ever chance they get. This could possibly be the worst environment that you will find yourself in. Expect to want...

      The whole place is a con! There is absolutely nothing positive to say about the place. Take some advice and don't work here.

      I have been working at Radyne full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Coming from a smaller company with very limited opportunities, I see plenty of room to grow upward through the ranks, plenty of interesting and fun stuff to work on. If you're really good at your job, you'll be recognized. Many managers are good at encouraging success.

      Cons

      A little rough around the edges culturally. Feels frenetic at times.

      Advice to Management

      Share more of your knowledge show people how you come up with the reasoning you do.

      I worked at Radyne full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      I started my career at Radyne in the spring of 1984. Started as a service engineer. At that time Radyne was Radyne/ako. We were purchasing solid state inverters from Radyne UK and building R.F. power supplies. In the early years Radyne focused on better controls for their line of scanners and lift and rotate equipment. The last six years Radyne has excelled in the development of the solid state power supplies. It was...

      I think every one at one time or another would complain either about management, amount of hrs. or pay. I will admit I was guilty of this but I still enjoyed my job.

      Pros

      If you are looking for a technically challenging job, this is the place to work. It is a fast pace environment where you will not get bored. I have worked for several different companies doing engineering and this job more than any other requires a good well rounded knowledge of all areas of engineering (materials, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, electric, and mechanical). We use all of these areas to design custom induction...

      Cons

      If you are looking for a job that you can coast thru your day, this is not the place for you to work at. This is also not the place for you if you are not looking to learn every day and work with together with your fellow employees. At times hours can get to be long to meet deadlines and respond to customers in a timely fashion.

      Advice to Management

      Keep building a strong team of highly technically skilled professionals. With a good team, this company will continue to grow.

      Pros

      A handfull of original employees holding company together.

      Cons

      Worst moral through out the company I have ever seen. Someone quits every two weeks. Below average pay with small and even no raises every year. Ceo has written good reviews to make himself look good.

      Advice to Management

      Stop micromanaging every department. Let the managers do their jobs.
