Close to home with a friendly group to work with.
Engineering Electronic Technician (Current Employee), Branford, CTMay 30, 2015
Pros: Free coffee. located in a shaded area for lunch time walks.
Cons: Many extended meetings where people are not avaiable.
I work closely with engineers and scientists daily with PCB board repairs and modifications, wiring, and testing of instruments.

Since the instruments I work on are subject to high voltage I was sent for IPC-7711/IPC-7721 certification.

The site where I work has had between 30 to 50 employees and are close nit and friendly. The managers, scientists, engineers and machine shop work well with each other.

The hardest time I have is towards the end of a project stage when everyone has priority jobs at the same time and I have to decide priorty.

Great place to get experience.
EHS Specialist (Former Employee), Boston, MADecember 30, 2014
Pros: fun place to work, good vacation/pto program
Cons: low pay
I had a lot of fun working here. Our department was great and the co-workers were a lot of fun. The pay, for the Boston area, was very low. Two years after I left, my pay had gone up over 50%! If you can get past the meager paycheck, it is a fun place to work.

Good work, Great people
Senior Software Developer (Former Employee), Branford, CTNovember 25, 2013
Good work, Great people. At the Branford, CT site we were a part of a large company but we had a small company vibe. That combination is both good and bad but on the balance they did a nice job running the place, producing quality product and keeping their people engaged, happy and loyal.
