Always tense, numbers and forecast updates regularly requested yet data never used properly.

ProsFull Profit Sharing once you achieve 2 years tenure. Respected product portfolio. Short lead times. Solid stock performance.

ConsArrogance of senior management. Pricing is consistently higher than competitors who are equally good at what they do.

Advice to Senior ManagementUndeniably profitable with no long-term vision on revenue growth. Amortize mature products and take less margin instead of constantly putting yourselves in a confrontational situation with customers who have more choices today than ever.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Like the dog who barked each morning at sunrise,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
