Great organization!
Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMarch 6, 2017
The organization is all about providing their employees the autonomy to be successful and win. High expectations for employees to perform, but that pressure comes with great rewards and benefits.

Network Administrator and Help Desk Administrator (Current Employee) –  Poway, CANovember 29, 2016
I didnt have any upward mobility, just not enough room. In the end I will be laid off but that happens sometimes. Had to fight for my fair wage but in the end I got what was deserved.
Pros
Great work life balance
Cons
No upward mobility, pay is just ok.

Challenging multitasking environment
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAMay 29, 2015
A typical day involves managing multiple customer and supplier accounts for quality issues. Self motivation is required to complete tasks with minimal supervision. Good department and interdepartmental relationships to complete tasks with co-workers. Hardest part of job is managing multiple internal and external customer requests. Most enjoyable part of job is being able to work with all the departments and employees of the company,

A friendly place to work with
Field Applications Engineer (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CaliforniaOctober 12, 2012
I had been working with this company for almost 5 years. It is a friendly place to work with from the beginning. Co-workers were quite nice. However, the company itself gave employees almost no compensation or raise in salary, only gave compensation based on or lower than inflation annually. When it needed to reduce force to save money, it always laid off employees secretly and individually. In these days, it is O.K to work with but definitely not the best place to work with.
