Focus has changed, and not for the better

(Former Employee)

ProsGood people to work with (At least in the production side). Great benefits (at least 1 exception) for single people. Opportunity to interact with various cultures and learn multi-national business internally.

ConsFrustrating mid and top level management. Often contradictory to each other to subordinates. Benefits seemed great, except tuition reimbursement (contractual requirements and ability of manager to override reimbursement for courses not deemed to influence your daily duties (MBA programs include multitude of functions, not all align with current role within company).
Subordinates looked at as pawns, and a very top-heavy company seems to refuse to acknowledge support structure needed.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce number of managers at all levels (you don't need a manager to supervise one person). Filter managerial prospects better to have those with ability to lead as managers (micromanagers tend to demean people). Evaluate internal candidates for growth potential, internal growth does not seem likely.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Unfortunately, employees are not a valued… Advice to Senior Management: You can only sh!t on your people for so long. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
