    I have been working at Resodyn full-time

    Pros

    Resodyn is a very fast paced organization with quick turnaround, which is necessary on many projects. Professional and dedicated employees are the core of success at Resodyn. Engineers opportunities include the ability to work on new and exciting challenges every day. The organization has constantly built on its achievements and all new designs are exciting and present their own unique challenges. The job pushes engineers to the limits of their ability and provides an environment to grow into well-rounded professionals with marketable skills. Senior engineers are heavily involved in the designs, which allow new engineers to quickly gain design experience.

    The work is so interesting and new, it is hard to not bring it home and continue to think about the problems on how to improve/innovate further.

    Because the organization is flat, people can quickly find their niche and grow into to it. A lot of the time people are hired to do one task, but their skills and drive have taken them to different positions within Resodyn. Resodyn is traditionally an R&D company, which still does R&D, but also supports the other Resodyn production businesses. Thus, engineers can either support R&D or production or combinations thereof.

    Resodyn provides great benefits including fully-funded health insurance, and 401k matching.

    The organization is very flat and most people report directly to the CEO, which allows great transparency and freedom to perform engineering tasks more quickly and efficiently than could be done with a deeper organization chart. Senior management also work more as engineers and are more considered colleges as opposed to supervisors, which allows for easier communication between engineers and management.

    Cons

    The major con of the organization is its ability to hire engineers and other professional staff.

    Advice to Management

    We need more people to keep up with the increasing demands of the growing business. The company is growing and healthy, so please keep up the tradition.

    I worked at Resodyn full-time

    Pros

    Resodyn has some of the most hardest working people I've ever had the pleasure of working with!

    Cons

    This corporate atmosphere is toxic and with extremely high employee turnover. If you are foolish enough to purchase a home in Butte during your probationary period, then you have become an endentured servant.

    Advice to Management

    There is no real management there is only one owner.

    I have been working at Resodyn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Resodyn has an extremely talented and motivated team that collaborates on several innovative product lines in a unique "mission driven" culture. This culture is one of a kind and you have to be creative in how you do your job. Management encourages personal growth and takes care of their top performers. The range of products means I have great flexibility in what I can work on and I am free to define my own career path. The flat company means I have few opportunities to chase titles but also means a lack of bureaucracy

    Cons

    Requires high caliber of work on a short schedule, can sometimes feel under the gun
    A lot of work (but also a lot of resources for you to learn to work smarter not harder).

    I have been working at Resodyn full-time

    Pros

    Employees are expected to work hard. In return, there is a great deal of intellectual variety and autonomy in projects when your skills are proven. Benefits are top notch and the setting in Montana is great if you enjoy outdoor activities.

    Cons

    Management structure is flat which can be a pro or con depending on your perspective. Work load can be challenging for those not used to it.

    Could use more employees to take on more projects

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Already seeing improvements and haven't been here but a few months. It is exciting to me that Resodyn takes the time to ensure that employees are happy and are typically enjoying their everyday job.

    Pros

    I have been at Resodyn for almost four years now and love every minute of it!!! I've broadened my technical knowledge, work experience, customer service and appreciation, and usable skills ten fold. An amazing company filled with amazing, hardworking, and ethical people. Managerial staff, engineers, technicians, sales staff, and researchers are some of the most caring, understandable, hardworking, and passionate people anyone could ever meet. Great pay, health benefits, profit sharing and 401k plan. Who could ask for more. President of company knows and values loyalty and hard work and takes plenty of care of those he sees doing both. I've never felt more welcomed, appreciated, and valued at any other job I've ever had. Resodyn is a family based, close knit group of like minded hard working people plain and simple!!! Always growing and expanding I can't wait to see what the future holds! Don't miss out on an amazing opportunity.

    Cons

    I can't honestly think of any cons... after reading some of other reviews on this site I just had to voice my opinion. Complainers are going to complain and those expecting to be handed everything and have their hands held aren't going to make it far with this company. Criticisms are taken very much to heart here and the team at Resodyn is always willing to listen to any and all ideas on how to improve the company, client relations, and employees employee relations.

    Advice to Management

    Props to management and all the employees of resodyn. I've worked at business that were unethical, money grubbing, extortionist, con artists where my work was undervalued and unappreciated. Thank you for taking a chance on me and giving me the opportunity to show my live and support for your company.

    Pros

    Silicon Valley isn't the best place in the west where"new to the world" things are happening. A surprisingly unusual combination of US developed and manufactured, high technology, value-add, concept-sell products has produced a world-class customer base in 25 countries.
    Technical and location challenges can be demanding, making the wins all the sweeter. We do things every day that no one has ever done before, and our customers recognize it. Success is a matter of commitment, honesty, knowing your own abilities and limitations, and preventing or overcoming surprises.Great business model is unburdened by any debt or outside investors.
    ButteAmerica is a true original. Colorful patchwork of history, architecture, grit and a growing arts and cultural scene, just waiting to be discovered. One of US's highest concentrations of Historic Landmark buildings, from theaters, to homes, to businesses. Summer Festival Season, insane 4th of July week, minutes away from hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, and . . . serenity. Bikers, professors, laborers, students, and ne'er do wells can all share the same block and enjoy it. More sunny days than Las Vegas.

    Cons

    Acute culture shock for recruiting out of town-ers. Drivers actually stop to let you cross the street. Lack of local talent and skill requires persistent and far-reaching recruitment. Not enough people to grow as far and as fast as we all want.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let up searching for smart, challenge-thirsty, accomplishment-hungry scientists, engineers, sales professionals, and technicians. Draw benefit from the flat organization by spreading opportunity and challenge in every direction. Improve technology infrastructure.

    I have been working at Resodyn (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, caring, intelligent coworkers
    Ability to gain experience in numerous fields
    Great benefits, FREE insurance
    Good pay

    I have been treated very well during my nine years of employment. There is no room for slacking here! Everyone is expected to participate to make Resodyn successful. Prove yourself to be a trustworthy and hard working employee and you will be well taken care of. I am proud to tell others I work at Resodyn and talk about some of the technologies we have developed. I have been able to gain experience in many fields while here, more than I would have at a larger company.

    Cons

    We need a few more employees to help the company continue to grow.

    I have been working at Resodyn full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Extremely innovative work being conducted by top-notch employees. The staff at Resodyn works hard and also gets the benefit of living in beautiful Montana. Employees are valued and rewarded for the challenging work that they undertake. The benefits package is exceptional! The company goes above and beyond in providing health insurance, life insurance, short term disability insurance, and 401k as well as a generous vacation plan. The company also actively supports community activities. If you're looking for a chance to really feel like you make a difference not only within your company, but also across many different industries - Resodyn may be the place for you!

    Cons

    The company is currently in growth mode. I'm not really sure that this qualifies as a con- but we have more work coming in than we can handle. Not a bad problem to have.
    The work is challenging. Part of the reason for Resodyn's success is that they think outside the box. This requires innovation and hard work and yes at times long hours, but at Resodyn it's truly a team effort from the CEO all the way down the line to make sure that the end product is something we can all take pride in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the search for new staff. It's always exciting to see the new approaches that new faces bring to the table!
