    I worked at Briggs & Stratton

    Pros

    Lifelong relationships built with co-workers and customers alike. Extensive Training was provided early on, but fell off dramatically in the end. Pay was very good. Customer base was fabulous. The engineering staff I worked with was top-notch. Family always came first when it counted. Middle management was awesome.

    Cons

    Senior management became obsessed with numbers and reports. Wasted a lot of time talking about what needed to be done, but never accomplished what they set out to do. Started to micro-manage way too much. Costs reductions were always their main focus, but ended up creating more problems with inferior products in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to what worked in the past.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    nothing to it, questions for every job are the same, interview questions for the most part have nothing to do with the actual job, they usually know who is getting the job before the interviews
