    Pros

    Collaborative, strong company with a lot of growth opportunities. Management was very receptive and the intern speaker series gave me a chance to talk with upper management.

    Cons

    Very slow heavy industry, seniority is a high priority. MBA is vital for moving up the company to any high position.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Provides resources for an employee to get involved in their community. Tremendous global opportunities. Strong core corporate values. Telecommuting provided as a benefit.

    Cons

    Employees become slaves to their jobs. Work-Life balance difficult to achieve with the hours that management expect / show as examples. Medical insurance SUCKS. Office culture very divided. Nashville Office was like working in a library. Noone talks verbally, it's all done via instant messaging which can really hurt one's communication skills.

    Advice to Management

    Start setting better examples in the hours worked, vacations actually taken without working.

    Pros

    Good starting salary for a fresh graduate. Good benefits including 401k match, pension plan, stock purchase plan, etc. Willing to sponsor international employees H1-B visa, although requires minimum 3 years of service before starting the green-card application.
    Work-life balance is OK. Good people in the company. Managers are generally easy to work with.
    There are a lot of young engineers recruited in the recent 3 years, which has made the corporate culture more vibrant than a typical manufacturing company.

    Cons

    There is an unbalanced work load distribution within the engineering teams--some people get too much on their plates while others often don't get enough work to do. Data management is poor and disorganized. Global growth strategy does not appear to be optimal.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on employee career advancement and well-being rather than too concentrated on stakeholder return. Improve the transparency in mid-level and senior management.
