    Pros

    You can be on a good team with cool coworkers if you’re lucky.

    Cons

    Organization changes quickly. This place is full of engineers-in-training. Workload can be extremely overwhelming in operations. If you’re not a favorite by your manager, good luck getting promoted. The pay is below industry, and when it comes to raise, it’s a lot less than what other companies are giving. My advice for engineers who’s looking for a job here: you’re probably young and just out of college, take the job, learn, and leave. There isn’t much room for advancement and the company culture is incredibly conservative and modernly backward. It’s not worth it to work hard and put in the extra hours.

    It’s by the border of Irvine! There’s at least a handful of big companies that offer much better working conditions, benefits, and pay.

    I have been working at MicroVention full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Negative working environment. Bad energy from lead to sub lead down to employee. Very little compliments for good doer, more complaints. my Lead somehow cannot control her personal emotion and always expose out on employees at work

    Advice to Management

    Manager should listen more to employees not just lead. Manager should not let lead do ever she wants like verbally abusive to ward employees

    Pros

    There are no pros in working here!

    Cons

    Terrible company! The management only cares about promoting theirselves or those who already have a high position. Specially in accounting! They hire non accounting graduates who don’t know what they’re doing and yet favor them! Management is scared when they have employees who actually knows what they are doing. They find ways to terminate good employees who perform well. Management only looks out for theirselves and don’t promote a healthy work environment for their employees. There is no growth in this company unless you are of a management level. Oh and if you want to make it here, you have to kiss up to your boss as it is the only way you can get promoted. Run far away from this company if you know what’s good for you! They underpay you and they don’t recognize your hard work at all! If anything they act as if you don’t do your job when you work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be better managers and listen to what your employees are saying. Hire educated people!

    Pros

    Exciting products and industry
    Engineering ok to think out of the box
    Feel like you're working with products that will really help people

    Cons

    Lots of nepotism
    Talent not as important as who kisses up to management
    Political environment can be frustrating
    Upper management wants to hear only what they want to hear

    Advice to Management

    Promote the truly talented - not those kissing up as you have already promoted lots of those
    Listen to what employees say to you - don't just write it off if you don't like it
    Stop the nepotism

    Pros

    The only good thing I can say is that you are not chained to your desk....

    Cons

    If you're not one of the Golden Children, you will go nowhere. No matter how good you do, how hard you work, if you're not a favorite, you're in a dead end position. If you are a favorite, no matter how incompetent you may be, you'll go far.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those that do, not those that say they will do. Reward those that produce results, not those that give you pretty PowerPoint presentations that are completely devoid of facts and merit.
