    Pros

    Leading edge technology and at one time the Cadillac of the electronics assembly equipment business. Good boss, CEO was demanding but I felt he was trying to lead the company back to greatness.

    Cons

    Took a pay cut to work there, OK benefit package, morale not great, very high turnover. Company is privately held. Average employee age has got to be very high with very few new professionals.

    Pros

    UIC provides a unique set of challenges and reports/systems that need to be overhauled. The challenges allow learning and growth as the employee learns to enhance current procedures for accuracy and efficiency. Many employees have years of unique experience and are willing to lend a hand when trying to solve problems.

    Cons

    The company is too reliant on a limited number of tools to get the job done. While SAP and Excel are powerful tools, data visualization tools and programming languages are not mass-adopted by the company. Utilizing these tools would increase efficiency when working with data and allow greater customization when building reports.
