HW Engineer
in Chelmsford, MA

"This was a very challenging work environment that it was very rewarding to work there right out of college. I learned a tremendous amount about high tech module and system electrical design. Unfortunately a series of cooperate management decisions lead the company to stagnation over the past several years and to my knowledge they have not yet recovered. The new CEO has done little to nothing to turn the company around despite vigorous efforts to re-brand the company."
