Pros

Mostly good people to work with
Relaxed working environment (typically no product deadlines)

Cons

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to drive the business through engineering innovation instead of purely patent driven decisions. Good engineering will always create value in some form.

    Pros

    Compensation is on par with industry for engineers and IT, however the KOP location is rather remote from any activities or a city.

    Cons

    Entrenched in outdated processes, The Board and CEO trying to sell the company. Department projects and goals rarely met which affected your bonus - when they didn't cut it at the year's end. No yearly bonus if you leave before 12-31. KOP location is rather remote and all major access roads have heavy traffic during peak times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to sell the company so The Board and CEO can have a payday, and get back to letting the engineers be innovative. Prorate bonuses when someone leaves of their own accord.

    Pros

    Good work environment,
    open research environment

    Cons

    R&D not applicable that much to product development
    The company is trying to invest in many small projects and this make it not specialized in any thing in particular

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unclear vision for most of the employers on where the company is heading and its future. Management should make this message clear.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
