    Pros

    Good pay for interns, apply knowledge to everyday problems and work on your own group projects.

    Cons

    Sometimes can run out of work for and have to wait around for a new project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a list of on going co-op projects that are only for them. It will let them pick up where they left off when they have free time.

    Pros

    Nice facility and cafeteria. Most people (excluding management) are very professional, educated and fun. Pay is above average for Charlotte which is decent.

    Cons

    Terrible culture, very little internal growth. Every day feels like a Monday with a black cloud overhead. Management does not promote leadership, collaboration or team building. Honestly, the worst culture and management team I have ever worked for. If you are good at powerpoints and politics, regardless of the bottom line numbers, this is a place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Global CEO needs to clean house starting with the North American CEO and 90% of the leadership team, and bring in true leaders that promote teamwork and build up their employees instead of tearing the down. There is no training program and every new employee is on their own in learning how to do their job. There is no consistency is any procedures or programs and for an older company, which is the exact opposite of a GE type company.

    Pros

    close to where I live, close to go home dont have to fight alot of traffic.

    Cons

    Managment is unprofessional and half should not be in that job title, some people were hired for managment position only because everyone else has quit and they have no other choice! Also lack of technology for process's They are still using pen and paper excel spreadsheets and emails as a workflow process(very outdated). How can one person look at 3- 10k or more of emails per day?? Work in 750 different systems, and still manage their work effectively. Very good people have already left. I am very happy they got out. Hopefully I will be the next one to leave! My job has changed 3 times in the last 3 years because over 7 people left my team in 3 years, which has a total of 7 members! I still have the same job title and no extra pay. the yearly review is set so no one gets a high level rating . Especially when the pen and paper process's do not allow the time to meet or exceed expectations. Anyone who works here should expect to work very long hours to meet your professional expectations by year end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEE'S! Get Better skills for yourself as a leader. Stop dismissing what everyone has to say about effective work-flows and collaboration. Stop paying for more software and systems for someone to use on top of the 750 we already have to use, to get a job done . Yet we are still getting 3-10k of emails a day, to also manage.

    Pros

    I have a great amount of leeway to do my job as I see fit. Rewarded and acknowledged for performance. Pay is average to slightly above average. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Wish that there were more opportunities for career growth. The hiring process is painfully slow. HR and lack of common computer systems are the company's weaknesses.

    Former Employee - Engineering Maintenance Department in Jefferson, IA

    Pros

    Reasonable wages and benefits for the area.

    Cons

    Not the best work/life ratio. Expects loyalty while giving none in return. Only shares information with employees if forced to. Claims to be quality driven -( true until a lower quality part or method is available for a penny less). Outsources at the drop of a hat. Obsession with lower cost blinds company to true value of experienced, quality employees and suppliers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes relationships carry a value of their own. A dedicated, experienced workforce can deliver the goods in circumstances when a low-wage, undertrained workforce just doesn't give a damn.

    Pros

    Beautiful, modern campus located in Charlotte. There are many talented, intelligent, and creative employees who are wonderful to work with. There is a push for innovation and thinking outside the box. Great work-life balance and brand reputation.

    Cons

    No control over growing your career. Period. NA-CEO has implemented rule where you must stay in current role two years before moving and approves every move himself. You will be held back if your career change is not convenient for management. HR moves VERY slowly. Most workers are contract employees who wait over a year to be hired. The HR policies and CEO control over career growth are forcing ideal employees out the door. This is the most common reason for people leaving that I hear. There are plenty of career opportunities, but you are not allowed to take them. Too much time spent making TV appearances and attending sporting events - not enough time spent developing talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time taking care of your employees. Upper management - please voice your true opinion. So many members of upper management are puppets to the CEO and do not speak their mind.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good work-life balance, and ability to get to job done without be micro-managed. If you thrive in a fast-paced environment, then you will do just fine.

    Cons

    No robust career development programs (mentoring, career roadmaps/ladders) defined. Lack of technology creates inefficient processes and sometimes duplicate efforts in several departments to band-aid problems instead of fixing the root cause.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time focused on developing the great talent that is brought in.

    Pros

    Family, work-life balance is good. Location is great.

    Cons

    No advancement. Prefer to hire from outside than promote within. Changing roles or departments for career growth is not supported. Many "director" titled people walking around with MBA's waling around looking at their phones and being disengaged with business. Low compensation compared to local and country-wide comparisons for various positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support employees who will like to grow their careers within the company.
