    I have been working at CTS Corporation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Production Planning role is blended - includes customer service, production planning and vendor schedules. Most roles are not micro-managed. Trusted to make decisions and implement ideas for improvement. Good people / team members. Lots of recent and on-going changes to make improvements in management of business.

    Cons

    Morale needs to be improved - majority of the employees seem unhappy including most of the management team. Personnel issues with union employees can take away from time/energy management needs to manage and run the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make changes to streamline and focus the Automotive division. Need to make more strides with: quality, safety and inventory control/management.

    I have been working at CTS Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many long tenured employees have a good understanding of the business, opportunity for working with people in intenational locations, new management team is still coming together but has aggressive plans for the future, competitive compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Typical work environment for today, reduced resource pool and long work hours, communication from management is sporadic and too high level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am optomistic about the future of the company but increased communication is sorely needed in order to boost morale

    I have been working at CTS Corporation as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fair training. Great people, including upper management and Production staff. Within my position I worked with everyone from Receiving, Shipping, Quality, Accounting, Program Management, and Scheduling.

    Cons

    Little space for upward movement. I was a Temp. for almost two years, which I feel is way to long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seen more. Long term employees on the production should be paid more. They carry a huge amount of worth in there heads. Which leaves the Company when they do.

    I have been working at CTS Corporation full-time

    Pros

    You work there means you are unemployed, that's reptty much the pro!

    Cons

    Worked in accounting/finance area. Management managed by fear. Extremely disorganized. My manager is extremely cocky, took no blame, no accountability, no interest in developing talent, he is extremely selfish, no career path monitoring. Senior Manager is a complete mess, extremely out of touch of the operation, and if you are putting out a sales numbers they didn't like, they will yell and scream over the phone and if they needed an ad-hoc report, they called you every 5 minutes to bother you and will not let you complete the request. If you want to learn, that's not the place!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at CTS Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Inexpensive cost of living in Elkhart, IN - home of corporate headquarters and Elkhart Automotive plant

    Cons

    Rigid attitude toward work hours and work roles. Poor benefit package. The right words are in the benefit package list but the contents of each benefit are stingy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use best practices of other high rated employers. Consider flex time, reward creative thought, focus on retention of good employees with good pay and good benefits. Having hired good people, work harder to keep them and help them improve their skills by encouraging pursuit of CPE/CEU, on the job training, internal training to improve computer skills, communication skills and other professional attributes. Do not intimidate employees so that they are not interested in expending effort to improve the company.

    cross functional teams use analytical approach. excellent new product development with on site design, program management, etc... Cutting edge technology

    Cons

    Union shop with lots of game playing.. not to bad after you get to know the teams and are accepted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work together as a team instead of divided divisions. There are many talented professionals that are under utilized. Focus on improving communications
