    Pros

    Meeting new people and learning about different parts

    Cons

    Too much favoritism and not fair straight across the board. The upper management looks down on the employees as if they're beneath them. Not all of them sum of them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with respect and stop all the favoritism and be completely honest with your employees.

    Pros

    Global network of co-workers is a nice team building environment, this company is based in Sweden.

    Cons

    Adherence to any sort of HR rules was non existent. You name it was happening. If your boss thought your were good looking, it was a breeze. Try working for bosses like that. Impossible to openly discuss day to day business without things being addressed honestly, or it not being held against you. Sons working for their parents. Brothers reporting to their siblings. Glad to be gone.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through with HR rules and practices that are standard at large companies.

    Pros

    Good vacation policy starting at 14 days, name recognition on a resume

    Cons

    Below average salaries, vacation is discouraged, CYA is necessary, extremely pricey healthcare, no mobility between departments, managers at each others throats, LEAN style manufacturing with zero quality control on vendors so no parts are in or the parts you have are inferior in quality, nebulous job descriptions that include "do anything we say you have to", hourly workers regularly cheated on overtime, sales trumps all other departments

    Advice to Management

    None, SRCC and HPC facilities profit margin speaks loudly enough. Negative growth over three years, greater than 50% turnover, only recent grads coming in, low morale, and warranty costs in the millions. They're sleeping in the bed they've made.
