Very friendly atmosphere
Accounting Clerk and System Support (Current Employee) –  Valley City, NDSeptember 8, 2016
I learned alot about real world accounting vs State accounting. Management was very helpful and encouraged you to ask questions and ask for help.
Co-workers were friendly, accepting and helpful.
Hardest part was learning a whole new ERP.
Most enjoyable part of my job was the diversity.
Pros
Flexible with lunch breaks for appointments

Medical coverage and annual leave

Good, positive company that is growing. The different teams interacts a little bit throughout the day, which allows you to grow and see the full scope of what the company produces.

Procurement Specialist (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORJanuary 31, 2016
The company has been progressing towards a cross-functional working culture, this has it's challenges, but overall is a very good thing. The hardest part of the job for me is the complete autonomy with little management involvement even when escalations occur. The most enjoyable part of the job are the people.
Pros
Free Yoga 2 x weekly and softball teams.
Cons
slow/limited career advancement, lower than average pay/compensation.

Never Again
SOFTWARE DEVELOPER (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDJanuary 20, 2016
There were between five and ten people who left around the same time I did. The culture is a drag and the people who work there are full of themselves. Also, it is a foreign owned company which makes it nearly impossible to move up in the ranks because of how it is structured. If you want to end up in a dead end job, then by all means go right ahead. Then again, maybe it was the experience I had and maybe it would be right for you. You never know.
Pros
Free Coffee
Cons
Egos Abound

Very Diverse.
Software Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  MarylandNovember 23, 2015
The company is very diverse but they have their issues. The management does not pay attention to complaints of the employees. The supervisors are focused on keeping the management off of their backs but it's very stressful working on certain projects. The whole company is not bad as a whole but there are projects that need to take a look at their views of management.

Nice benefits, but reactionary greed dominated ethics after rosy quotas failed
Sales (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORNovember 10, 2013
There are worse companies out there in terms of how employees are treated, kind of a mixed bag with FEI. I would go back if I felt that I was on a team, but that was not the case before, where mid-upper level management had their mind set (based on incomplete and dodgy info), and just wanted the worker bees to duck-step without input or feedback. Long-term goals were stressed but decisions seemed all reactionary and short-term.
I wish I could take the worker bee colleagues with me.
Pros
progressive benefits package
Cons
conceited, uncommunicative management in at least some areas

Hectic Environment with a lack of process
Quality Analyst/BA (Current Employee) –  Columbia, MDSeptember 3, 2013
On a daily basis individuals are 'putting out fires'. As far a QA goes, the jog entails testing and is focused more on Quality Control.
