YSI R&D in Yellow Springs, Ohio is not a good place to work.
Cons: bad management, no recognition
There is extremely high turnover in R&D, with some new hires only lasting a couple of weeks. Management is poor; projects lack direction. The goals used for job assessment are arbitrary, vague, and constantly changing so that you will get a so-so review no matter what you do. Yearly raises are 2%. Achievements are rarely recognized and never rewarded. Originality is punished. Software tools are outdated. Management is paranoid, so they will often watch over your shoulder and second guess. Project schedules are arbitrary and have no basis in reality.
