    Good, nice people. Most are trying hard. Compensations and benefits seem to be in-line with industry standards. Good internal training programs. Some departments can be great learning platforms for young professionals.


    The organization spends too much time planning for unrealistic objectives. Since they never reach those, leaders have to create new, more aggressive, objectives and reorganizations. Leaders are rewarded for trying hard instead of delivering the results. This favors spending hours making powerpoints that looks great instead of satisfying customers.
    Probably due to the internal focus, Sauer-Danfoss products and services are not keeping up with competition and they lose market share. As volumes decrease, profits decline and the sales force has to go out for price increases which keep alienating customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Steady that ship. Stop reorganizing the departments every six months. A lot of us can help this company but keep being interrupted because a new reorganization is suddenly decided.
    2) Create a culture of accountability. Most leaders spend their time creating unrealistic objectives because they are asked to do so and they are not punished when they don't reach them (because everybody knew they were unrealistic in the first place).
