    I worked at Genmark Automation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None, none, none, none, nothing!!

    Cons

    Never paid suppliers on time, yet still had unrealistic expectations to have just in time delivery!! Nepotism, racism & sexist!! I was threaten with my Job on a weekly bases to preform to impossible high standards under the financial situation. Was verbally abused! Received sabotage training from peers because of their fear of losing their jobs. Dishonesty abound!! I no longer work in high-tech because of... this common treatment of employees in this industry.

    I worked at Genmark Automation

    Pros

    None - the whole company is run by bullies.

    Cons

    Genmark Automation has no regard for your well being, or your career advancement. They willy nilly hire and fire people with no grounds.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the supply chain materials business & need employment retention programs. Stop hiring people and then letting them go four months later because your company doesn't know how to manage finances. Your company is adversely affecting people self esteem. Not to mention the adverse effects on one's resume. In addition your job requirements are a set up to fail. Very bad manament. They really dont know... whats going on Internally.
