Pros: great ira plans, market comparable benefits plans
Cons: job security
I worked for Imation from its creation in 1999 until 2011. The best part of working there was the people I worked with. Imation has gone through so many down-sizings that there is not one person working there that is not the best at what they do, and enjoy doing it. It's like working with the best of the best, with everyone doing everything they can to make it work.
The company itself had gone through several changes in direction, which has resulted in losing the bulk of its employee base. One problem that has come of this is the loss of historical knowledge. As people are let go, the knowledge of the job goes with them, leaving equipment behind that no one truely knows how to operate correctly. But as the focus is directed away from Mag Media R&D, maybe this is not even a problem any more.
I wish all who remain the best of luck in the future.
