    I worked at Gleason as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Global sales, well known in their industry (machine tools) a leader in their specialty (gear-cutting machines), a reputation for quality and precision, dedicated talented workforce, a great sense of pride in their product and their reputation, manufacturing floor is king, lots of attention on customer delivery schedule

    Cons

    Machine tools business is cyclical with the manufacturing industry and vulnerable to economic downturns, the company recently experimented with Lean and Six Sigma and other initiatives but results were spotty, top management shakeup in 2012

    Advice to Management

    Decide what your strategy is, communicate to your employees, stick to your plan
