    I worked at Magnetek full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Had a good team to work with. Direct boss treated me like an adult but the rest of the staff did not.

    Cons

    This is the only company I've been at that the engineering department was the last one to embrace technology. They still ran Windows 2000 and management didn't want to upgrade...

    Most issues are not handled like adults... No one is approached like an adult they are belittled and scolded like a 5 year old.

    The same process that was in place in the 70's is still in effect today and to change anything that may be efficient would endanger your job as the senior staff is extremely scared of change. If you enjoy pushing buttons and never having an independent thought this would be the place to go.

    Each business unit is disconnected from the business as a whole and it would appear management does not care in the least.

    Most employees are scared and confused about technology.

    There is very little planning to any project and even everything is run by the seat of their pants.

    HR is not your friend and over reacts to almost every situation as they don't know what is happening and don't grasp the information presented.

    Overall the company is in the dark ages and progress is not valued or embraced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to listen to new employees!

    Refresh the staff and senior management as they will be gone soon and none of the younger generation will want to work with a bunch of dinosaurs and use software from before they were born because they didn't want to change.

    Get people in there that understand technology.

    Encourage independent thinking not monotony and button pushing.
