    I worked at Segway LLC (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy to fit in, flexible work hours and interesting product.
    It is great for engineers trying to expand their knowledge base.

    Cons

    Documentation organization has room for improvement.
    If you touch it you own it, never volunteer for a job you don't want to do for life

    Advice to Management

    You have a wonderful product, figure out how to sell it better.
    Stop passing the buck, fess up to what you know and don't know
    Trust your people and stop arguing with them when you don't have a clue of what you are talking about. Managers need to recognize the ones with the 11th hour antics and stop them from getting away with that behavior.

    Small company, everyone knows each other. Company works on making the job and environment fun. Keeps their employees in the loop with whats going on with company.

    Advice to Management

    Now that the company has owners that believe in the product, the company should stop being stagnant and should realize their potential.

    I worked at Segway LLC (More than a year)

    Pros

    I actually worked there later than 2011 but don't have the choice of anything later. Were mainly good people, fun product.

    Cons

    Some of the upper echelons of engineering could be arrogant, though I believe most of them are gone now.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the price.

    I have been working at Segway LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people work here, that's about all I can think of.

    Cons

    Bad senior management, loosy benefits, horrible communication, no appreciation, no real direction, really outdated computers and network system.

    Advice to Management

    Communication goes a long way, don't keep employees in the dark. Employees should all be on the same playing field. Favorites should not get special treatment.

    I have been working at Segway LLC (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a great interesting history and, especially in the NH area, the name carries a lot of weight and gets you in many doors that you may not otherwise.

    Cons

    Bad benefits. Low wages, unless you're a friend of the President. Upper management has no clue what they're doing and continue to drive sales down.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the current sales team and bring in sales people who will actually work for their money. Pick an avenue of growth for the company and stick with it. Stop throwing crap at the walls and hoping something sticks.

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of one at the moment as the companies ownership has changed a few times and most of my former colleagues have left.

    Cons

    When I was their it was in disarray and in about 7 months my direct manager changed 6 times and each manager wanted to take us on a different direction.
