A former employee shares his thoughts on indeed.com, "Xyleco's president is a nut-cake and spent the place into the ground. They laid off 80% of their workforce. Are the investors going to put more money in? The important patents now have at least 5 years on them and are almost burnt. Why put more money in?"

No human resource department. No competitive benefits offered.Hard working employeesunsafe environment, OSHA violations, poor management, no career development"
