    Approves of CEO

    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.

    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. You are blamed for dropping the ball even if you are not trained properly. I wasted my time at this place!
