    Middle and lower Management have a lot to be desired.

    Team Leader (Current Employee) Belvidere, IL

    ProsUnion representation and protection. Job security. Great pay (if you're first tier). Good benefits. Decent people to work with. Build great products.

    ConsArrogance and self aggrandizement seem to be the rule of thumb among the lower management tier.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize you DON'T know more than the people you're trying to lead and listen to good advice from the floor.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Rewarding but tough place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kokomo, IN

    ProsNew powertrains are being produced at break neck speeds gives you the opportunity to learn at a very fast rate

    ConsNot enough managers and engineers to manage daily production, WCM projects, and cover the alternate work schedule.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a large disconnect between CTC and the plants. The stress on managers in the plants is apparent and we will be soon losing very valuable people due to working environment in our manufacturing facilities.

    ProsNice company car program. Decent benefits.

    ...........................................................................................................................................

    ConsRaises and promotions are hard to come by. People don't develop expertise and competencies because they are forced to change jobs in order to get raises.

    .....................................

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the right people in the right job and compensate them accordingly. Development and providing challenging opportunities to your employees can still be provided in a constant job or environment.
