    Pros

    They provide a lot of overtime.

    Cons

    Overtime is often required and you may not have as much time off as you'd like. You may not know you have to work until the day before, but that's how many of these circuit board companies work.

    Advice to Management

    Communication could be worked on.

    Pros

    What we built and specialized in were incredible works of technology, military and commercial, and working with new designs every day was inspiring. Great place to get your foot in the door, maybe gain some experience to further your career somewhere else.

    Cons

    Management cycles through so quickly here, it is so hard to get an efficient production flow. People will go out of their way to hinder progress if it suits their particular customer's agenda. Management often put cutting costs over purchasing quality tools for builds. It sacrificed the overall quality and cost more in repair work over time. Also, due to the deadlines being prioritized far too late in the game, there was a lot of "loophole" or "short-cut" work being passed off.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employee and coworkers' input or suggestions. We see a lot more on the floor because we are so hands on with our products. Reward the loyal workers who are dependable and provide quality work. Don't let the good ones go.

    Pros

    Great management! Employees are very friendly, and engineering staff is very knowledgeable/helpful. Great internship experience!

    PCB manufacturing requires a lot of steps. Bit of a learning curve. Learn a lot on job but do some research on your own if you are interviewing/interning here.

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work. I learned a lot from all my years here. Operators are mostly nice and willing to help out.

    Cons

    Managers are lack of people skills. They're pushing good employees to work too hard while lazy people can just do whatever they want. If you're close to the boss, then you can lack off and still be okay.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the performance of your employees and stop being bias. Acknowledge their accomplishments instead of pointing out their faults all the time.

    Pros

    none there are really no positive things i can say

    Cons

    little or no information about job upon being hired, vacation is not a given after certain time, it is accrued pay period by pay period, micro management is the norm, get used to being told at the last minute on friday that you are working the weekend, pay is absolutely horrible unless you consider 1% pay raises good. and no double time ever not even on seventh consecutive day. no room for improvement you will never move up unless someone quits or dies. constantly being made to do things outside of job scope the having to make up regular duties on weekends. high turn around especially in maint.

    Advice to Management

    wake up and look at how you treat your people before you're out on the floor doing the work yourself.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great a lot of good people to learn from and will back you up if you pull your weight.accrual PTO system if your at work regularly you'll always have paid time off available .

    Cons

    wage raises & advancement are non-existent,management is selfish & more focused on nonsensical issues rather than getting the job done and seeing to it that you have what you need to accel, benefits are horrid,upper management likes to make decisions from thousands of miles away and then you have to make due with their stupidity. supply chain & logistics is absolute joke!

    Advice to Management

    stop advancing your buddies who perform poorly and lack work ethic it destroys the moral of those who actually pull their weight ENOUGH with the CLIQUES!!!!
    listen to and consult operators before facility changes they work with the equipment everyday DON'T ASSUME you know better because you have a piece of paper saying so while having never worked with the equipment yourself.
