    I worked at SPX full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many employees have strong technical and project management skills. Generally a fun, friendly place to work.

    Cons

    Niche company. Current RF design core team has stronger technical skills than those employed a few years ago, but weaker project management skills. Business is currently slow.

    Advice to Management

    Latest design effort has spiraled out of control, taking way too much time.

    Pros

    Great first job. I would have stayed but at the time they did not need a permanent marketing perso.

    Cons

    As an intern I did a lot of drone work like filing and making copies. The fact that the manufacturing workers were union made things really terrible

    I worked at SPX full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Monday-Friday, 8-5. Good work-life balance. Great start out pay for a person just out of college. Friendly coworkers/managers for the most part (every work place has a few bad seeds). Good benefits package with health and 401k. No micromangagement.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth unless you're an engineer. Work load can be intense. There was some bullying going on in the office that wasn't taken care of - manages took a very hands off approach to drama.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the drama going on in the office. It isn't insignificant, it is making people miserable.
