    I have been working at Anaren full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The CEO and his team really care about employees. The benefits and compensation package are fair for the Syracuse area. The engineering talent is excellent and the work afforded through the S&D and Wireless businesses is exciting. The industries we serve are interesting and the products state of the art.

    Cons

    Need to continue to promote career development and get creative to offer employees who want growth opportunity to do so. Wireless seems to operate in a silo vs. as one business unit - not always support of employee growth if not within their business unit.

    Advice to Management

    With the new change in owner, continue to try and promote the culture that has made Anaren a great place to work! Continue to care about your employees.

      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Anaren full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      I wish there were some positive experience at this company but unfortunately my time there was nothing but unpleasant and aggravation

      Cons

      This company is a joke. From management to some of the old workers. No training in place for new hire. Company top management only listens to a certain person whispering negative feedback. Employees complain about everything especially if you're not part of their group. Management is incompetent. Can't get product out the door. Lying to customers all the time. To many people wants to be the boss and not enough workers....

      Advice to Management

      Be honest with whoever you are hiring. There is no growth at this company. Also look into the complaints instead of taking sides without asking. Try to treat everyone the same! Stop playing favorites.

      I have been working at Anaren

      Pros

      Decent pay with shift differential, good benefits, and great location

      Cons

      Management is constantly changing along with employees it makes it hard to get great quality.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees. It's very frustrating to tell 3 different managers a problem or be told by 4 different managers you messed up. Organization skill is lacking severely here.
