I worked at AAF-McQUAY

Pros

Decent pay and benefits. Mostly good people to work with. There are a lot of veterans with very good product knowledge. There is a real desire for growth.

Cons

HR is completely incompetent. One example is when they opened the ADC, HR was in charge of the grand opening and sent out an email a month ahead of time for employees to choose to attend the catered meal. A week before the event they announced that all employees could not park their car on the premises and had to park half of a mile to a mile away. Lets just say that the food ran out halfway through the service.

Senior management has no clue on how to implement Daikin's growth plan. Their best marketing job is to Daikin and the new CEO, not to actual producing and promoting products in the markets necessary for growth. Daikin wants them to be a leader, but McQuay continually operates in niche markets. Part of the veteran employees is that management is also full of long term people who haven't moved on from the micromanaging of the 60's and 70's. Performance is determined by how many hours you are at your desk. Some of the poor middle managers work 12 hour days, partially because the systems are antiquated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Daikin wants you to be a leader in the Commercial HVAC market, not the Applied. You have to think bigger than your comfort zone currently is. Clean out the HR department (again) and fix your systems issues. It will take getting rid of some of the long term managers to move forward. You should start with the managers who over-hired. Why are they still there?

    Innovator in the filtration industry stymied by internal politics and poor leadership.

    I worked at AAF-McQUAY full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong brand equity- AAF invented air filtration; Good people that are dedicated; Recent acquisition of innovative technology; Global reach; Parent company (Daiken Applied) has deep pockets.

    Cons

    Extremely poor leadership with limited corporate vision; Disfunction within the business model (conflict between channel partners and direct sales); Lack of R&D/ new product investment; Large Gaps in solution portfolio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the dictatorial approach and embrace Daiken's People Centered Management philosophy. You need to trust the professionals that are driving the innovation and success. AAF also needs a stronger bond with the community- there is a limited commitment to being a "good corporate citizen".
