    Top heavy influence from corporate team, who were not in touch with the pulse of the employees.

    Pros

    Really good place to work, great people and relaxed worked environment. Benefits package better than other companies.

    Cons

    Company will make changes without informing employees of changes until after the fact. Communication between upper management and the rest of the workforce is non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your work force, they are the ones that meet customers daily and keep the company moving forward.

    Made a mistake several years ago with the selection of a CEO from outside our culture. This is a Midwest company with Midwestern values. They care about people.

    Pros

    Great culture, great customer focus. Manufacturing prowess consistently improved every year. People were highly motivated to win and get the job done.

    Cons

    Structurally defective industry with over concentration serving Verizon and AT&T make it incredibly difficult to create sustainable growth. Over the years had invented some very innovative wireless technologies and smart connectivity that they just couldn't commercialize. Great culture had difficulty extending outside of a telecom centric mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly understand core manufacturing and technology and find a way to leverage into more adjacencies
