    I worked at Daikin Applied as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Gave me ample time to learn their products and were very good with working with me learning new software. Treated me like a direct employee instead of a contractor.

    Cons

    Moving the company from Auburn, NY

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep treating your employees like you have and all will be well.

    Pros

    They have a very nice cafeteria

    Cons

    McQuay is one of the worst companies that I have ever worked for. There expectations for a leader are totally unreasonable. Upper management have no idea how to manage it's managers. The Union controls productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the current leadership and bring in a leader that has worked at the floor level before.

    I worked at Daikin Applied

    Pros

    Dedicated people who want to do a good job

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of how quickly it could be turned round
    Past fears of further layoffs and the uncertainties of the Daikin Takeover have damaged the culture
    Too many silos
    Poor to non-existent leadership
    Japanese culture was not well implemented even thought it was needed
    Poor understanding of what it takes to compete against the market leaders in the commercial space

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you appoint a leader give him or her the authority to act and then give them a reasonable time to reach agree goals. Sales cycles for MCPs and systems far exceeds the expectations of leaders wanting results in months
