Job requirements were task based, with specific profit, delivery and customer satisfaction requirement.

Coworkers were professional and skilled at hardware – more... and software engineering.

The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job was managing resources so they were used most efficiently across multiple projects. – less

Great pay, but layoffs are always close by
Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee), Wichita KSJuly 22, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: knee jerk managment
You'll make good money with good benefits. Management like to express how much they enjoy jetting around the world while you sit in the same factory day in and out. Layoffs happen, however the company does make an attempt to move people within business units if possible. All in all its a good place to be.

Engineering (Current Employee), Hunt Valley, MDMarch 3, 2014
Pros: hunt valley is adecent area
Cons: everything
Management is changing hands faster than they deal cards in Vegas. Co-workers are a toss up, some good some bad as expected anywhere. No room for advancement, improvement or outside ideas. If you don't want to drink the kool-aid you wont fit in.

I would honestly recommend a job at wal-mart before coming here, and yes I've worked for wal-mart in college.
