Great Place, too bad it ended

Engineer (Former Employee)
Suffern, NY

I worked at General Cable

ProsThe pro's were the people in the group. They were very helpfull, and they encouraged you to go for it more in terms of finishing projects.

ConsUpper Managment didn't have the company very stable. It lead to the office being shut down. The cons was that the company laied off a lot of workers due to the move from Suffern, NY to Highland Heights, KY

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to haveto have better upper management so that you don't kill the chemistry of the groups.
