    I have been working at Phoenix Contact full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy-going atmosphere from the president on down. Co-workers are pleasant, and friendlier than at any company I've ever worked for in the past. The owner has set a goal to be one of the best places to work in the world, and evidence of that is all around, from the employee fitness center, to the ergonomic workstations.

    Cons

    German parent company uses different systems, and expects same results from US operations, with the same ease and speed achieved in Germany. This is definitely not the case and friction between cultures arises occasionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to forget the benefits of a small company. Piling procedures on top of procedures is taking away the friendly atmosphere, and sterilizing it by creating a lot of "it's not my job" type responses.
