    I have been working at Selectron Technologies (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * You have the ability to choose your own career path.
    * You have the opportunity to learn new development skills on multiple development platforms. You won't get bored.
    * Good compensation plans.
    * Great 401K and matching program.
    * Fantastic co-workers and after work activities if you want to get involved.
    * Good customer base. The customers are very friendly and great to work with.
    * Convenient west-side location.
    * You have the ability to telecommute.
    * Selectron will compensate you for approved continuing education.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any cons. If you have the desire to learn, work hard, and grow, you can write your own ticket.

    Advice to Management

    As the company has grown, upper management hasn't communicated as much with the individual staff members. The newbies would like to see their faces a little more.

    I worked at Selectron Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Nice co-workers. Good work/ life balance.

    Cons

    Selectron is very top heavy. The CEO has an accounting background and has never worked in any position besides that. He thinks he knows more than the developers, Sales, Design and Customer Support employees that were hired with experience. The management under him is afraid to oppose him and anyone who does gets let go. The company tries to micro-manage EVERYTHING, and because of this it's hard to make any progress on your projects. They have had around 23 employees either leave or get let go in a span of 4 months, including employees that have started with the company when it was small and their whole QA Department. This turnover has happened even though the company has gone through no big changes. The pay is well below market value and any promises to increase are very rarely honored. They mostly try and find employees right out of College that have no experience and don't mind the low salary. If it's your first job and your trying to add to your work experience then go for it otherwise I wouldn't recommend the company.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire experts in their field, let them do their job.

    Pros

    Good people, fair schedules, solid product. Good location, in new building this year. Dedicated senior engineers and middle management. Free parking.

    Cons

    Pay is low, work load is high. Stressful at times. On occasion, very cheap. Little attention paid to the engineers who do the work.

    The pay is not bad but you are not going to be over paid working at Selectron.
    Can be slow to act, slow to change.

    I worked at Selectron Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Soda
    Loud cubicles reigned by college graduates who believe that they are becoming the next generation of developer.
    Senior staff that is out of touch with reality and exude a "do as I say, not as I do" mentality.
    If you are able to produce high volume, low quality work then this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Management
    Company needs to evaluate long term with goals with short term decisions.
    Vacation time is very minimal and difficult to take.

    Advice to Management

    Reel your managers in and set achievable expectations.
