    I have been working at Full Spectrum Laser full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, where all developers get to work directly on the code across many systems. Projects feel like they matter, writing code for an evolving product and developing features for new ones. The company atmosphere is friendly and there is no competition between departments.

    Cons

    There is the occasional obsession with micromanaging our time, and not always trusting the employees to get things done, even though we've proven to be trustworthy. When this happens, feels like someone is watching over my shoulder as I work. But luckily this has been improving and happens much less often than it used to. Main other downside is that I think there could be more PTO available, or more flexible hours so PTO is not needed in the first place, if time can be made up elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to get things done, until they prove that they cannot be trusted. And if we aren't trustworthy then you have reason to scrutinize our time.

    Pros

    You get to work with an exciting product that allows people to create some amazing things. The upside potential here is endless and the company keeps growing. Definitely has been an opportunity that I am thankful for and enjoy!

    Cons

    As a result of the incredibly fast growth departments do not always communicate as quickly with each other as they should. However, this is getting better and we are becoming a well-oiled machine!

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on staying ahead of the curve in our competitive global market.

    Great team. Smart people. Cool products. Management that cares about the company and its employees. Bonuses every 6 months. Good Benefits. Growing, profitable company.

    Legacy of negativity/turnover, but it is turning around as new people come on board.

    Hang in there and keep building an outstanding team. The "Nay Sayers" will fall by the wayside. Positive, team building actions say it all.

    Pros

    Employee benefits are better than my last two jobs at a lower cost, employer pays a large portion.
    Bonuses are paid semi annually. Most compaies had done away with bonuses, but not this one. Bonuses are fair and Objective for EVERYONE, not just some people.
    Snacks and drinks provided. Management really seems to care about employees even as company is growing.

    Cons

    Some people are very negative and vocal about it, gossiping and the like. As new people get hired these types are going to be out numbered so they seem to get more vocal. Most people are nice but some are quite the opposite. The company culture is changing, just not fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and customer service are BOTH key items. They know this but some people feel they are not communicated with enough - even though they may just not understand what has been communicated to them.

    The company culture needs to improve.

    I worked at Full Spectrum Laser full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company's main product is its line of lasers, followed by 3D printers using lasers and resin instead of filament. Most of the staff are either mechanical engineers or in the sales department, with a handful of software engineers. There are a few other positions, of course, but those make up the bulk of the employees.

    The kitchen is usually stocked with food and drinks, and the working areas are large enough that people are not bumping elbows.

    Cons

    Being a small(ish) company, I found no room for growth in the software development side of things. The owner takes advice/feedback from the employees, but there is no upper management, so everyone is on about equal footing, and ideas have to be brought straight to the owner. Sometimes, for technical or practical reasons, the software team may all agree that going a certain route would be best/easiest, but the decisions are stymied by the boss.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the software developers that come in from other companies have experience that would greatly simplify the work, so although they are newer, consider their contributions on equal footing as some of the more senior staff.

    Pros

    Your financial increase is based on the company as a whole, however that is artificially adjusted from the top

    Cons

    incompetence of management and ownership. They will promise you incentives during the hiring process, then once you are hired you are treated like you are incompetent. There is no opportunity for growth in positions, not departmentally, or financially, you are hired for a position and that is final. There are no raise negotiations. I wish that I would have read the reviews on glass door prior to coming here, a BIG mistake not to have done so.

    Advice to Management

    honor your word
