    Pros

    There aren't any, unless you are a senior manager on the gravy train

    Cons

    Waiting to be ex'd or outsourced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves and hire engineers. The single strongest predictor of long term investment value is "the degree of innovation" present in a company. Look at companies like Dupont & GE......lack of innovation is in inverse relation with shareholder value as a long term investment (especially in "high tech" markets). Companies like CTS hamstring product development (especially in times like we are experiencing now) with singularly myopic focus on quarterly financial results. Conversely, The BEST companies to invest in are those, who, during the tough times, use their time developing world beating, best in class products. CTS has been "hollowed-out", several times over in the past few years because of management's gnat-like attention span.

    CTS management is out of touch with the daily operation of their company.

    Pros

    CTS is close to my home, with the high price of gas, this is a great benefit. We always have plenty of work, which is good in this economy. I work with some great people.

    Cons

    The CTS management have no interest in the daily activities of most of the employees. There are many improvements that need to be made and they just ignore many of the suggestions that are made but the people who actually do the work. A lot of time and money is wasted due to incompetence of some of the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on the production floor (daily) to see how the operation actually runs. Interact with the employees, get to know them and their jobs. Listen to suggestions people have to improve things. Be willing to spend the money to improve the quality of life and work at CTS, this will improve efficiency and quality and eventually save the company money.

    I worked at CTS Corporation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very Good HR practices, excellent working environment, transparency among ranks, seniors are very approachable

    Cons

    Allocation of projects among resources, slightly regional nature of management,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every employee needs acknowledgement of the job he is doing. A simple pat or a nod from the manager can be really helpful. Also the responsibilities should be allocated based on talent, education and experience and not on the basis of which region a certain person comes from.

    Try to be a little employee friendly. Maybe you can devise better policies.

    I have been working at CTS Corporation

    Pros

    fairly low pressure, not much overtime or weekends required.

    Cons

    Poor communication between management and engineering ranks. It's easy to tell who management favorites are - they get best equipment, assignments and perks. There is no room for advancement - Few management positions to start with and they are filled with long time employees. CTS does not like to spend money, so don't look for cutting edge technology.
