    Good work life balance

    Flexible timings

    No proper support functions

    Just hiring high quality people is not enough. You need to give the challenging work environment to use their skills.

    Advice to Management

    Consider people on their merits and not an other irrelevant ways like following policies to find them fault

    Pros

    Growing and stable company
    Satisfactory Compensation
    Good Work Life Balance

    Cons

    The company is a conglomerate of many different companies so the working of different groups is very different. The working should be streamlined across different Business Units.

    Pros

    The quality of work and exposure available is maximum. Can get to learn various cycles involved in product development, probably which is not available else where.

    Cons

    Nothing that concerns a lot now.

    Pros

    Great long-term strategic plan with excellent management for driving profit. Excellent company if you are an engineer, and a good career company overall (as companies go these days).

    Cons

    If you are not an engineer, your career path is more limited. A good business-minded individual without an engineering degree should expect to jump to a new company to get the promotion they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult to give advise when management seemingly pulls all the right levers to maximize profit growth. However, if I'm pressed to offer some advise it would be to look and invest for more longer term opportunities; not all fruit is of the low-hanging variety.

    Pros

    They hired 5 interns for the summer. They paid us pretty well ($18 an hour) and let us work overtime if we wanted. Everyone was very friendly to us and always was helpful when we asked questions.

    The site I worked at (Aerospace and Defense site that made pressure transducers) was part of cool projects, like building components that went on an astronauts backpack.

    Cons

    Moral was very low. The engineers worked like 70 hour work weeks. My superior worked 7 days a week and was very stressed out. When he/she asked for additional help they brought me on as an intern. Any additional help was out of the budget. No one really seemed to crazy about working there. Some of the younger engineers left while I was there. One went to grad school and the other got another job and is a lot happier.

    Advice to Management

    You have to spend money to make money. When your employees tell you that they need help repeatedly you need to listen. Also, overtime is ok if it is not 12 hour days seven days a week. Employees cannot produce very effectively if they are exhausted. Also, more money and better benefits.

    Pros

    Free Wi-Fi. No enforcement or rules about being on a smart phone all day. Pretty clean.

    Cons

    Little if any training, never hear "hello or good job", assembly department employees are forbidden to speak to one another, management seems exempt from the employee handbook as they speak and treat people like dogs, micro management. Prior months turnover is advertised - obvious HIGH turnover!

    Advice to Management

    They profess increasing employee moral is a "goal". Clean house, replace management with people who'll appreciate the workers.

    Pros

    Good amount of PTO and paid holidays.

    Cons

    Very poor opportunities from within, "Good Old Boy network" do not foster a positive, progressive environment. Antiquated process', do not utilize systems available to them. Stagnate environment.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, get new innovative managers who have a progressive vision for the company. Results driven people who are measured for their efforts and accomplishments. Get out of the 80's business model.
