Production Planner/Scheduler (Former Employee) – Angleton, TX – November 12, 2017
Unstable work culture, Low salary, Micro managed and over worked The pay is on the lower end of the industry and not much opportunity for professional advancement within the company unless you stay with the company for years
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Moorpark, CA – October 16, 2017
This location has changed hands three times in the last 5 years. This type of CM business is extremely price and schedule driven, and when understaffed will never be able to drive the process control required for world class Quality. Not enough qualified candidate's being hired and job training is poor.
Work is involved with high profile A&D customers and cutting edge technologies

Robotics Tech/Smt Setup and Teardown (Current Employee) – Nashua, NH – September 19, 2017
Overall a good company to work for, pay was fair, and people where great to work with. The 4 10 hour days was also a nice work week, left plenty of time to work over time. The building was very nice which made for a great atmosphere. All in all I found it a great work experience.
Test Operator (Current Employee) – 3535 Technology Dr NW, Rochester MN – September 11, 2017
Benchmark Electronics is a company that accomplishes many things for many clients regarding technology. We make test and distribute back to the clients a variety of things such as military tech, medical advanced machinery, and household security. It felt like rewarding work, but having managers breathing down our backs, not allowing us to talk even when we are ahead of schedule as well as having required overtime every other weekend, just gets tiring, leaving many to feel under-appreciated and devalued as members of the company.
Set weekly hours, rewarding work, multiple breaks
Tiring, stressful, and minimal to no flexibility on hours

Scheduler (Current Employee) – Winona, MN – September 4, 2017
Working independently as well as being part of a team atmosphere has been the rewarding part of my past 27 years. Management is great and opportunities for advancement is communicated often and Tuition reimbursement is offered and appreciated! Co-workers make it a great place to work and are always there to offer a hand when experiencing hard times that happen in real life. It's nice to enjoy coming to work knowing you are part of the bigger picture of company success . Appreciate that management recognizes your part in the success of the company.

Accounting Clerk II (Current Employee) – Angleton, TX – August 9, 2017
I love working at Benchmark. The people are fantastic, my managers are amazing, and the environment is the best I've experienced in many years. It's a great opportunity for those folks not wanting to commute to Houston or work in a plant.
You are promised promotions and advancements from upper management, but no follow through. The company seems to look outside for positions that come available when advancement opportunities open up for the most part. Good work atmosphere and work flow with fellow workers which will be missed greatly.
Some what stable because of location no competition
No follow through from upper management with promotions
