Good place to start your career
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 6, 2015
As I said, it is a good place to learn for a beginner, but you need to get out after a few years of experience. Work culture is very "school-like", need to swipe in on the dot or be marked late, even if you are a second late. Need approval on everything that you do. People scared to take responsibilty
Pros
People are friendly and are generally helpful
Cons
Management needs to care more about its employees, Low salary and benefits

Quality Assurance Engineer (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYFebruary 1, 2015
If you are a newly graduate looking to learn real engineering skills, this is the place to go. The engineering responsibilities here are not set and repetitive, everyday there is a new challenge that you have to overcome.

My coworkers are vey cooperative and it makes the work environment very enjoyable.

Robot Operator (Current Employee) –  Deer Park, NYDecember 7, 2014
Beginning of the day you get your orders, process them, run them in the machine and then get it inspected. I learned to be more patient, especially if a machine is not working properly. Management and co-workers are mostly the same in most jobs. Hardest part of the job is orders coming in too late and still expected to be finish with little time to work on.
Cons
short breaks, no annual pay rate raise

Buyer/Planner/Expeditor (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYFebruary 4, 2014
I worked at Mini-Circuits for 3 years. It was a great experience as a fresh graduate. I had encountered pretty much every possible scenario that would have happened everywhere else, more of the negative than the positive.
The workload is constantly overloaded due to the shortage of staffs in every departments. It is chaotic as we are expected to perform many hats in the work place.
Expectation is on par with major organizations, while the compensation is extremely low. Healthcare benefit is next to nothing.

AS400 Manager (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJune 2, 2013
Every day at Mini-Circuits is focused on exceeding customer expectations. You will learn the importance of how to keep customer's interest in the forefront. Management is very detail oriented and is quick to make decisions. The hardest part of the job is to finish every task you have decided to finish at the start of the day but in doing so, you will finish the tasks that matter most.
Pros
fast paced, never boring
Cons
short breaks
