Current Employee - Senior Management  in  Milwaukee, WI
Current Employee - Senior Management in Milwaukee, WI

Pros

Access to projects you never dreamed you'd work on, just because you were in the right meeting or expressed interest. Unfortunately, most projects go to people who, like you, have no experience and do a mediocre job. Open door policy results in easy access to any executive.

Cons

The only leaders with Fortune 500 experience are gone...too different? Seem to prefer middle of the road educational credentials, so my colleagues aren't too intellectually inspiring. COO and CEO need to LISTEN and accept what info walks in their doors. Corporate Coach is a former broker, serves as the messenger between executives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drop the Coach; LISTEN to feedback and input; hire people NOT like yourselves to inspire change, growth and challenge! Benefits are among the worst for this size company.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI

    Pros

    good pay, good benefits... good people at the working level

    Cons

    corporate politics have created a culture of mistrust and paranoia.
    Too many rumors about closing plant and moving to China or Mexico.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support employees to focus on their work, instead of worrying about what the score is.
    A lot of inefficiencies are caused by people feeling aprehensive to stick their neck out on an issue, especially if it will cost $$$... regardless if it is needed or not.
