Pros

Used to be a wonderful place to work unforunately now its a shell of its former self.

Cons

worst management at al levels. Hire bottom of barrel instead of the TOP quartile as in the past. Everyone is just waiting for more layoffs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire non-performers. Look for results and be accountable. Get rid of the home threatre business unit. They have never made money and will ultimately bankrupt this company. Respect the Industrial business unit and recognize that they have been carrying this company for decades.

    Pros

    Money, desperation - it's good enough if you have no other alternative

    Cons

    Layoffs, poor compensation - not the worst in town but you'll have entirely precarious employment and sub par compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain employees, cut your own salaries

    Pros

    Good company with excellent products and an aggressive growth plan. The recent aquisitions of Runco and Vidikron have greatly enhanced the product offerings to the residential market and should boost the bottom line greatly.

    Cons

    Some of the management are known for running other display companies into the toilet. With the recent departure of Scott Hix this is hopefully no longer an issue. The biggest risk faced by Planar is the potential destruction of the Runco and Vidikron brand names. If these products are all just turned into different Planar models, without the emphasis on performance and brand discinction, this experiment is doomed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't run Runco and Vidikron into the ground
