    I have been working at SED Systems full-time

    Pros

    A lot of high profile projects. Great team with highly-skilled engineers.

    Cons

    Everything is great for a learner/beginner. Also a good place for junior/intermediate and senior. I don't think of any disadvantages.

    Advice to Management

    More discussion about employee performance, maybe every 3 months.

    I have been working at SED Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good staff. Everyone is helpful, specifically senior persons. Good benefits. Flexibility in timing.

    Cons

    Salary could have been better, in my case. Sometime resource are limited for testing. Limited project budget which does not allow overtime. Very few events for employee enjoyment.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SED Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good people on the floor and really smart, experienced techs. They have a decent education reimbursement program if you could ever get granted access to it.

    Cons

    Absolutely no room for advancement. The only individuals who get promoted in this company seem to be in upper management. Middle management is filled with people who have been at their jobs far too long. They have no worries of repercussions when they do their job poorly, and have no care or respect for those working under them. Employee suggestions will be tolerated but never actually given any thought. Pay is horrible...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old boys club in middle management. There is a culture of disrespect when it comes to how employees are treated.
