Too dependent on Nokia
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Manchester, NHJune 26, 2017
The management considered themselves as hotshots when in fact they did everything Nokia asked them to do.
While Nokia was doing well, Laird did well.
When Nokia tanked, so did Laird.

This may be the only company where you can continually claim you didn't receive an e-mail as an excuse
Business Analytics Manager - Connectivity (Current Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILMarch 16, 2017
The pros: The company is concerned that you have a good work life balance and was able to work around that; I was able to schedule my hours around when my children needed to be at school and other activities. They give a generous amount of vacation, it was difficult to even take it all.

The average: besides vacations the benefits are average. Management is willing to hear feedback.

The poor: The company needs a culture change. There is little accountability and engineering seems to always drive everything (products end up being what engineers can do instead of what the market needs). Important meetings are often scheduled at the last minute (literally) without full agendas which hurts meeting agendas. Although management is willing to hear feedback, there is little feedback on performance or goals given; my managers treated professional development as a chore. Finally information is often horded and siloed. I rarely if ever had contact with the other business division of the company and could not work on cross BU projects. There is no sharing of best practices as a result.
Pros
Excellent work / life balance, great vacation time
Cons
Toxic culture, no concept of career development, siloed information, lack of accountability

Electronics Assembler (Former Employee) –  Warren, OHOctober 7, 2016
Overall very good place to work, only few problems are just in time inventory which isn't always on time, and parts are not checked as well as they should be when they come in.

Quality Technician II (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSJuly 13, 2016
Upper management is not coordinated or has any clue as to what is going on in their own department. Board members are greedy! I was lucky to have a manager that knew what he was doing and what everyone was tasked with to accomplish. Thanks to his guidance and leadership, I was able to be promoted.
Pros
No one looking over your shoulder.
Cons
Upper management is a joke!

Pros
Free coffee and soft drinks, regulary scheduled free lunches
Cons
Corporate is closing this facility and moving manufacturing to San Marcos, CA and Reynosa, Mexico

Good quality products; Management and strategy are in constant flux
SALES MANAGER (Current Employee) –  United StatesNovember 23, 2015
Great colleagues and lots of talent in engineering. Frequent change in management structure and strategy direction does not allow for any traction. Bloated middle management structure creates obstacles and slows response to issues.
Pros
Many positions are home based; decent health & vacation benefits
Cons
Expectations for conference calls during off hours & weekends
