    I have been working at Gleason full-time (More than a year)


    The people are good and helpful. Lack of organization helps you to work independently and teach yourself.


    Lack of organization with many plans but very poor execution. No general focus on where the company is headed in future. No long term plans. Micromanagement on daily operation which has caused no attention to inefficiency in processes. Generally, people do not know how to use newer technology to improve internal and external operations and also a lack of ambition in doing so. Very poor resource planning.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on internal issues and resolve them with results instead of validating everything and questioning everything. Only then profitability will increased. Define and train employees in customer relations. Make sure internal processes are flawless integrating newer technologies in Manufacturing, Industrial Science and IT. Focus on how to expand the business and capability rather than micromanaging actions of every employee. This simply adds waste in time for both.
