    Pros

    Great benefits, Competitive Salaries, Career opportunities and Experience

    Cons

    Very old manufacturing mindset, Highly difficult change management regarding the business processes, over 40 ERP systems globally

    Advice to Management

    IT and the Business need to compromise both must embrace process and change, for example changing the technology and maintaining the same business process is difficult to make successful.

    Pros

    Friendly co workers, It is a big company with a lot of divisions, there is some degree of job security but that seems to be a virtue not for a long period of time depending on the company's growth and investment in China.

    Cons

    Company seems to struggle to go beyond being an over grown machine shop. New ideas generally ignored and technology is not utilized to make day to day activities more efficient. Yearly raise is usually around 1 to 1.5% and its getting more challenging to meet with management expectations to meet up for a satisfactory bonus pay. Life work balance is challenging as management push more work on people without figuring out how to run their business efficiently. It could get really stressful at times for work to be finished without sufficient time given for the complexity of the projects.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about numbers, promote quality, listen to your employees and try to embrace technology and utilize it.

    Pros

    Public company with competitive pay. I felt the company was ethical and had ok benefits. lost of opportunity to grow

    Cons

    Public company and when the investor says reduce the workforce, they do so, even though they are still making money and turning a profit.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to those who work for you. They have good ideas!

    Pros

    Great company. Work Hard, Play Hard, expenses paid, company car, benefits good, disability, life, health, dental, 401K, matching up to 6% @ 50%, + Cash pension plan, Grow your territory be rewarded. stable on keeping jobs. if your looking for a challenge? You'll find it here.

    Cons

    Sales goals most generally are reasonable, however if one blows the doors off in a given year. The proceeding year's target will be last years sales, plus 5-10%. The old adage is, if you make extra bonus, above plan. Put your money in the bank for next year your going to need it.
