    I worked at CTS Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The office environment was very nice and so were the people. The benefits provided were also decent, so that also helped.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities were limited for most unless you rubbed elbows with the right people in charge, which was a challenge as the corporate office was located in Elkhart, IN at the time.

    Former Employee - Production Coordinator in Elkhart, IN

    I worked at CTS Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I learned to manage a group of individuals as well as multiple products. I accelerated in my time management ability. I learned about unfamiliar products and prototypes.

    Cons

    The only recognition received was that of negative enforcement. There was no team effort above my pay grade, only individuals faulting others instead of pulling together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get all of the facts and pertinent information before acting. Do not reinforce individuals because they tend to be loud or try to intimidate, positive attitudes should be rewarded. Hard work, personal effort and team players will make a corporation successful, and gain respect where it is due...management.

    I worked at CTS Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place for a local "fresh out", with a competitive college degree, to work for 2 yrs. Low cost of living area to live, easy drive to work, and almost non-existent business travel compared to industry peers. This means little unexpected overtime. People are friendly, and with a small cap, low-grade office poltics. If you want a safe place to raise kids, or other priorities, this presents fewer distractions than a Chicago or Detroit job.

    Cons

    Compared to peers, hire/promote too many unqualified people (insufficient education or training), and it shows in demonstrable ways, such as Quality department documents; lot of missing or messed-up APQP docs. Not worth a relocation unless a higher level job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Want to be competitive? It starts wtih hiring credentialed employees AT LEAST as good as your competition. Get some ASQ appropriately certified Quality Managers. Stop promoting people because they have long service records or considered very likable, start promoting people willing to put in the time for the education/training. Clean up the place so you can attract these people.

    Just another American based company that takes jobs away from American workers for a better bottom line.

    I worked at CTS Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The facility I worked at was a very friendly environment filled with highly skilled and helpful coworkers. Hours were reasonable with occasional over time.

    Cons

    The facility I worked for was closed, all production lines were moved to Juarez, Mexico to save money and raise profits for share holders. Numerous awards in excellence and a highly skilled core of employees was not enough to stop them from closing down this factory. No raise in 3 years of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value your skilled employee's more than your share holders.

    I have been working at CTS Corporation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Production Planning role is blended - includes customer service, production planning and vendor schedules. Most roles are not micro-managed. Trusted to make decisions and implement ideas for improvement. Good people / team members. Lots of recent and on-going changes to make improvements in management of business.

    Cons

    Morale needs to be improved - majority of the employees seem unhappy including most of the management team. Personnel issues with union employees can take away from time/energy management needs to manage and run the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make changes to streamline and focus the Automotive division. Need to make more strides with: quality, safety and inventory control/management.

    Pros

    Many long tenured employees have a good understanding of the business, opportunity for working with people in intenational locations, new management team is still coming together but has aggressive plans for the future, competitive compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Typical work environment for today, reduced resource pool and long work hours, communication from management is sporadic and too high level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am optomistic about the future of the company but increased communication is sorely needed in order to boost morale
