FNC is a great place to work if you need somewhere with a good work/life balance.
Hours are flexible and if you need to leave to go to the doctor/dentist you don't have to use PTO to do it.
Speaking of PTO, we get a week off at Thanksgiving and two weeks off at Christmas! And you start off getting 3 weeks vacation on top of that!
Company wise, the culture is great, they are trying to be a more open-communications type of work place and I think they are getting there. I currently am in manufacturing and it seems like the company is moving away from that to a more services based company, but they are trying to keep the manufacturing side busy, just the orders aren't really coming in right now.
great co-workers but overly controlled by overseas parent company
Engineer (Former Employee) – NY – February 19, 2016
NY facility closing. Future of hardware business is questionable. Questionable value in doing its own manufacturing. Positive working environment; supportive middle management; attention to quality. Reaction time to business opportunities is hampered by bureaucratic processes of decision making.
Talented, motivated workforce; attention to quality; long view of business
Burdened with bureaucratic processes; slow; subsidiary of overly controlling overseas parent
A solid company focused on customers and employees
PM (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – November 5, 2015
Provides employees security and has great benefits. Lots of opportunity to move around and learn wide range of job skills. Above average pay. Orgranizational silos, misalignment and lack of transparency creates conflict.
Security, Pay, Benefits, Nice Campus
Mistrust and Politics, Poor Financials, Insufficient Innovation
Great manager who gave me 100 % support. I was able to use my router experience and apply it to the COX fiber ring network. This opportunity gave me exposure to the Alcatel-Lucent SAM and Granite platforms.
Good, interesting and challenging work environment
Senior Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – February 3, 2013
Reviewing products, attending meetings, working with people with different culture and values, assisting others and learning from each other. Travelling for many hours not easy to manage when dealing with rigid schedules. Nice and interesting working with the Japanese.
