    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at RedZone Robotics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative, friendly workplace. Ideas are encouraged and innovative thinking is rewarded. Great location. Interesting, unique work that you feel can make a positive impact on the environment. I enjoy going to work every day.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the hours needed to complete projects are long, and voluntary time on the weekend happens, but overall, I can't say very much from the negative side.

    Great pay with lots of hours. Travel and hotel is paid for by company. Paid training.

    Benefits are not good. Travel constantly. Management is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. No scheduling as far as time at home. Sometimes can be completely random.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at RedZone Robotics (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small enough company for an individual to affect change. Great benefits - Med/Vis/Dent/Hosp, company works on yearly benefits decisions as a group entity. No managers breathing down your neck to complete tasks. Valid, metric based bonuses and raises. Fresh ground coffee, Keurig, subsidized vending machines in office, and many teas available. No issues with headphones. New upper management seems more focused. Giant lot to park in makes it easy to get there, park, and get to work while knowing your car's safe from burglary and scratches or dings for the day.

    Cons

    The worst part about this company is that it always have an "are we still going to be open next week?" feeling. Every project was questionable on revenues generating ability. There's not much "on the job" learning and it feels like what you were hired for is what you can plan to retire still doing. No focus on personal development and growth. The benefits have gone downhill a bit thanks to Obamacare. Actual yearly bonuses seemed to peek at about 4-5% and only actually occurred about every 2-3 years. Otherwise company was in a "spending freeze" conveniently during every yearly bonus, while hiring new assets and taking on more negative revenues jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the "sky is falling" attitudes and discussions so your employees feel more secure. Put some time and effort into process management. Definitely offer some "personal and professional growth" opportunities.

    Pros

    Management has been able to engender a great team spirit, and cooperation over departmental lines makes it a fun and exciting place to work.
    Targets are set and the Team gets it done

    Cons

    Offices are in a difficult place to get to with bad roads

    Pros

    open communication, solid processes that involve all teams, team environment, strong leadership from COO.

    With the exception of the COO, weak executive management team. CEO is completely disengaged in the business.

    Advice to Management

    Executive team should take notes from the COO on how to lead a company.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, can work from home, sufficient pay

    Cons

    No communication on work to be done, unprofessional management, made and ignored promises about bonuses, full-time hiring, and employment in general.

    Advice to Management

    When you tell your employees that they will never be out of a job because they worked hard and finished all the backlog of work AND promise bonuses when backlogs are completed, you should live up to that promise. Not drop them as soon as work is caught up without even telling them they no longer have a job. If you know you won't have enough money don't tell an employee they will have a job a year longer than you plan to keep them.

    Treat your employees as the human capital they are, not cogs in a machine
