Projects were assigned by your manager, you were given the tools to do the work. Schedules and timetables were reasonable. The people I worked with were professional in the way that they worked. It wasn't that hard to get up in the morning to go to work.
I liked my jobs at Goss International. I had great supervisors. Several of them gave me a chance to try better jobs although I had no formal education. Each time, it worked out well. I was allowed to try and improve the methods and the tools/programs used for documentation. Again, it was a positive experience for both my supervisors and for me. The downside of working at Goss was the lack of job security. People were never sure when a layoff was to take place. There was poor communication between departments. Ultimately, the people being laid off were the people needed to support our customers.
Very good immediate supervisors
Upper level management seemed disconnected from the actual job of manufacturing a good product
Nice place to work, work it self is good clean hands on assembly work. Goss is owned by investors that are making lots of changes. appears to be a large gap between the management and product assembly. Goss has many obstacles to overcome but could be a great place to work like it was in the past.
People, hours, management was good. Sometimes I found it slow paced and I personally like to be busy. The management I had while at Cabletron was always willing to help you advance if given the opportunity.

Customer Service Department (Former Employee) – Dover, NH – December 21, 2014
Thoroughly enjoyed working for this company. Enjoyed meeting new people at the different sites. Loved the travel. The worst part of the job is that it took me away from my family while my daughter was growing up. But now that my daughter is grown up, would like to travel for work again.
Many engineering problems to solve and great variety of new and existing products to work on. Great team of talented engineers to work with. Unfortunately, the industry is in decline due to increasing competition from electronic media.
Very old company with no chance in this new world environment, unless they become lean and change management . Co-workers have been working in the company form more than 30 years average , and they have created habits
