    I have been working at FLIR full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Total company vision from CEO is excellent. Great products and innovation will keep the company growing! Pay is competitive with market.

    Cons

    With quick changes come challenges supporting the business and uncertainty in what will happen next. Communication of vision is not making it into day to day "running the business" challenges. Everywhere staffing is not at the right level to support the growth, Doing more with less is the common phrase. The Company is focused on stock market results and not it's employees growth or supporting it's employees as it adds more work. Temps or salaried OT seem to be the preference over full time hires to growth support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the right people, have professional development plans and set reasonable goals for the teams. Put the same amount of work into the management of the company as is being done with the development of the next product.

    I have been working at FLIR full-time

    Pros

    Employee stock purchase plan, decent benefits, decent pay. Not a bad work environment. Good products overall, especially if you are into optics, thermal imaging, etc.

    Cons

    Poor intra-company communication. Management promotes incompetents. Company caters to the stock holder above anything else. Employees come second.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on communication. Don't just talk about it—lead by example. Don't just send a company email. Talk to all your employees one-on-one and find out what they're thinking. Address employee concerns at meetings. Let employees know that their thoughts and concerns are being heard.
