Keithley Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Keithley Instruments is a measurement and instrument company headquartered in Solon, Ohio, that develops, manufactures, markets, and sells data acquisition products, as well as complete systems for high-volume production and assembly testing.
A former employee shares his experience on indeed.com, "I was hired by Keithley to be a designer but was expected to manage a group of programmers with no hands-on development work. Those who I managed were difficult to work with. Overall, it wasn't a positive experience."
Sales says"company culture is appalling, eventhough there are some wonderful people at Keithley, it is the leaches that you will remember from your time at Keithley."
Communications says"Keithley is a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants company. Serious miscommunication at the management and engineering levels is very prominent. Project Managers and engineers have been known to ignore emails that contain pertinent information on a project's deadline. Not enough time is built in to the milestone schedules and a large trickle-down effect is felt by all including shipping and handling. This creates an atmosphere of fear and produces incomplete products and documentation."
