Pros

Excellent yet a bit late decision to spin off electronic T&M group
Great individuals and teams around the world do know how to deliver amazing results
Very few senior managers are excellent in mentoring new employees and adopting change

Cons

Some long-time and/or senior employees (especially from larger sites) have a well established network, influencing or trying to control key changes in major initiatives as they see fit - expect the unexpected

Advice to Management

Accelerate a true adoption of younger generation(s) in senior management
Continue staying focused on growth, innovation and superior operational results

    Proud company with amazing employees held back by management infighting & lack of investment in operational excellence.

    Pros

    Rich heritage. Employees are greatest asset who go to incredible lengths, working countless hours with very little reward or recognition. Engineering talent is outstanding and folks in trenches are highly creative.

    Cons

    Need to focus on the customer with greater intensity, Circular door of management with the same leaders simply changing seats which causes repeat mistakes and entrenched beliefs. IT investment is constrained for internal operations.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risk and act with company values instead of pretending to. Need to take more leaps and make greater investments in Marketing setting achievable goals and tolerating less in-fighting and management of personalities.
