    Pros

    Full of opportunities .. family business which is transforming in the last 5 years.
    Need for change.
    Freedom to explore & fail.. no questions asked.

    Cons

    Freedom without responsibility/ accountability.. Leaders are just speakers with no bias for action. Managers just play second fiddle.
    Laid back culture & conservative.
    No strategy in place.. IT or any teams.. Old fashioned & no challenge to change,
    Filled with consultants who have made LII their home.. so more speaking & less action.
    India is supposed to be a Manufacturing & Technology center but emerging more as a time pass center. No career growth opportunities..
    Less work & more personal balance.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage talent.. look beyond the share price & top line growth.
    Act on feedback given.. it makes a difference to the organization, teams & for yourself too.
    Check the pulse of what's happening within the organization.
    See if the culture is enabling you to move forward in reality.

    Pros

    2014 we worked 4 days at 10 hours. Had one 10 minute break before 30 minute lunch and one 10 minute break after lunch.

    Cons

    Starting January 2015. We work 5 days,8 hours a day. With only 1 break after 4 hours. 20 minutes in length. Most weeks are 7 days scheduled. Sunday is not optional. Many employees have quit. And we are not to the busy season yet.

    Advice to Management

    Return to 4 days at 10 hours. And show employees you care by giving a morning and afternoon break time. And $2 across board pay increase.

    Pros

    Stable industry
    Big company
    Good benefits
    Teamwork
    Work-life balance

    Cons

    All Senior management is male-dominated
    No advancement opportunities
    Impossible to transition from a Senior to Manager
    Salary ranges for each position are huge so pay is often unfair (people with low responsibilities making way more than they should)
    Low performers get moved around to other departments instead of being fired (and with that comes a pay increase)
    Management is very top heavy (not many lower level people that actually do stuff)
    Needed low level positions are not added in lieu of unnecessary new management jobs

    Advice to Management

    Trim management and add more low level positions
    Promote women
    Promote people that can actually do stuff and get rid of the "fat"
    Review compensation so it's fairly matched with people's skills and performance

    Pros

    They don't track vacation or time-off in IT so many employees benefit by the lack of oversight in this area,

    Cons

    Low pay - raises are usually 1 to 2 % per year if you are lucky. IT management are out of touch with what's happening in the rest of the IT world. IT jobs being moved to India as fast as they can move them. Most systems are old and out of date - needing to be upgraded but can't get approval for upgrades because lack of funding.

    Advice to Management

    IT Exec management needs to be re-organized and changes made. They are all long time IT employees who have never worked anywhere else and have no idea what's happening in the rest of the IT world.

    Pros

    This is my 3rd engineering job. When I took the position here I planned on leaving after about 5 years. I've been here 10 months, and this is by far the best job I have had. I have not had a bad day at work. I feel like my work makes a global impact, and its not just a quick money scheme like a previous job. This job is hands on. I design, I test in the lab, we train at the factory, we keep up with marketing through out the life of the product. I never work overtime, unless I want to.

    Cons

    Occasionally equipment needed is not there. But I there is no limit to a price if you can justify the use.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good. They make us feel appreciated. Cake every month.

    Pros

    There are a few people who genuinely care for others. If you are lucky enough to work for one of them, it is at least bearable for awhile.

    Cons

    The company practices a culture of blame, particularly in IT and Engineering. When problems inevitably arise in a project, management insulates themselves and concentrates on identifying a scapegoat. If you enjoy lots of overtime and travel away from home, with very little thanks in return, then this could be for you. Almost all of the growth in IT and Engineering is occurring in India, very little stateside except for replacing those who quit.

    Advice to Management

    Take ownership. Management is more concerned with sacrificing those that work for them than identifying and correcting the real issues.

    Pros

    Benefits but not very good ones

    Cons

    No advancement, when production is shut down, you either take vacation if you have it or take a day off w/o pay. Awful management. Brag about caring for their employees but that's a farce, only care about the bottom dollar and the upper management bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees right, let employees advance. Make unproductive employees accountable, too many things are looked over with the saying "it's always been like that".
