    I worked at VICOR as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company and everyone who was there was extremely willing to teach anyone new to the company. The pay was great and any shortcomings were tolerated within reason.

    Cons

    The workflow was never ending and mostly rushed. There were several documentation issues mainly because everyone had no time to go back to their old projects because there were always so many new projects that needed to be completed.

    Pros

    Good benefit program, fair management team, good location, great co-workers, fair pay, yummy cafe onsite, advancement and learning opportunities were okay.

    Cons

    Sometimes decisions took longer than necessary from management team, some people float by without having to do much and not being held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Take action with poor management before employees get discouraged and look elsewhere for jobs, thank people often for their hard work - it means a lot.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Can work independently, great for a self- started who requires little direction and enjoys solving customer issues and problems related to technology, workflow, etc...

    Cons

    Almost non-existent career path for growth and development. Field personnel are rarely informed of new open positions within the company and an outside individual is usually hired while the field engineers get passed over

    Advice to Management

    Learn to identify the 'star' employees - mentor them and provide them opportunities for growth and career advancement.
