      Mediocre experience

      10 Dec 2020 - Senior Engineer in Wilmington, MA

      Pros

      Cafeteria, good parking lot, nice campus, some decent people

      Cons

      Lots of cancelled projects and layoffs, they don't give raises consistently. Very low to none for RSUs below E-13. Very poor place to develop cutting edge skills. Very poor and mediocre experience. If you are a family person makes it impossible to live in a good school district and afford a family. Odds of lay offs are higher than the odds of promotion for senior people. The company wont pay to hire top talent. They hire the person who will accept the least pay and expect that person to perform on the 95th percentile. It never works out with these hires projects get delayed and cancelled with reorgs and layoffs and middle management gets re-assigned to another product line and the same situation repeats. Very political place. There is a silly shrine for Ray Stata in one building, to make up for cancelled projects and limited to no RSUs.

      Interesting work, good colleagues. Nice building.

      Pros

      Great Leadership from upper management. Bonus and Compensation are competitive. Respectful and pleasant working conditions.

      Cons

      Middle management could use some coaching...Remember, it takes money to make money. Depending on location. They seem to keep the good ol' boy system going. They don't try to put money into new blood because they are spending to much on the old blood whom are no longer relevant.

      Pros

      Great work/life balance. You get to work with great people who are very smart and you get to work with cutting edge technology. The new CEO seems aggressive and is fast tracking the advance of the company (although this has led to more layoffs with the acquisitions).

      Cons

      Lots of red tape with many many layers of middle management and inefficiencies as a result of the red tape. Lots of paper work that accompanies red tape. Salaries could be higher.

      Technically Talented, but strange management and career development

      22 Aug 2018 - Product Applications Engineer in Greensboro, NC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Genius engineers, bright observers of market trends. There are extremely talented folks throughout the organizations and the internal conferences are great opportunities to broaden your knowledge and network.

      Cons

      Not really sure management understands that career development is a strong desire from younger employees. A lot of this depends on who your manager is. If your manager isn't giving you what you need, there aren't many options for you. Upper management is good at communicating high level strategy, but middle management struggles to develop efficient ways to execute on these goals - leading to lots of wondering by the lower level folks. No clear promotion pathway. Anti-social culture at least in Greensboro since so many people commute.

      Stable, too stable.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Stable company recently celebrating a 50th anniversary. Significant revenue stream from legacy parts. Large cash reserves. Few day to day existential crises.

      Cons

      - Stable company with little vision breeds laziness, internal politics. - Middle management is over-sized and not aligned. Decisions aren't made. - Company composed of many small teams with limited collaboration between them. - Little reward for the developers and few hardworking engineers that produce the successful products. No incentive to succeed. - Technical talent largely limited to converters and a few isolated businesses. - Upper management exhibits lack of technical understanding and judgement, ultimately leading to bad decisions, acquisitions and investments. - Executive vision is cliche, lacking depth and examples. CEO and CTO are both marketing focused.

      Pros

      Great benefits and access to any resource to help you do your job better. Great profit sharing. An overall sence that leadership is there to help the individual contributer be productive.

      Cons

      Middle management out of touch. Too much focus on strategic (long term) efforts and not tactical (day to day). Many current programs are starved of people causing missed deadlines and employee stress.

      Pros

      The chance to work on innovative projects, openness to new ideas (mostly), flexible hours, above market pay, one of the best 401k, an industry leader with a great culture

      Cons

      Agree with one of the other reviewers, middle management can be an insecure rigid bunch. fresh blood must be induced into the company.

      Pros

      Flexibility in work hours & ability to work from home, Interesting and challenging work, high job security, good bonus program

      Cons

      members in the team did not get along causing friction and a tough environment to work in, this resulted in number of team members leaving the group leading to an understaffed team. Base salary was not competitive against other companies, poor middle management (always stalling than taking action), failure of management to listen to down to up communication
