I learned and accomplished a great deal, but eventually left when it was clear that atmosphere would not improve.

Pros

Manufacturing in plants around world. Some cool technology with motors.

Cons

Secretive rather than cooperative atmosphere in engineering department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't tolerate disruptive behavior by a few insecure employees. It has undermined your ability to retain and develop talent.

    Pros

    No overtime, so 40 hr per week. If you leave late, you can use the time you accumulated to leave early or come in late.

    Cons

    Pay is about 25-30% below market rate. There isn't any bonus or profit sharing. Employees are not motivated and has very low morale. The engineering manager/director is a jealousy person and will take credit for your work to help him to get promotion from his boss while the top management doesn't really know your existence. Has very low ethics and has no shame in taking other's work results w/o other's permission and shows no appreciation. Promote a very political climate within the department. Uses his pet engineer to spy on other engineers. Between managers and managers, there are major issues. Quality and Manufacturing (managed by a Redneck bully) doesn't communicate or exchange information and most likely hate each other to death. MRB takes place once a quarter it seems. Once the failed production units are found, they go into the MRB cabinet and stay there for 3 month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees with market rate and boost up benefits to motivate employees. Hire some qualified managers for engineering, manufacturing and quality. Promote a friendly working environment.
