      Old Style of Management but Great People

      Apr 8, 2021 - Cyber Security Analyst in Fort Collins, CO

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Many of the individuals I have worked with are very welcoming, understanding, and collaborative. The culture is not one that expects you to work 60 hours a week.

      Cons

      The company overall is run with the bottom line always top of mind. It seems like management often makes short-sighted decisions to meet quarterly metrics rather than focusing on ways to retain, train, and advance their talent.

      There's a good balance between having opportunities to learn the design and manufacturing of a product. Everyone is typically nice and supportive towards anything you don't know and support for your work.

      Cons

      Miscommunication of information flow down from leadership. More work than attainable falls down on one individual, half the time during unplanned times.
