Pros

It is a job and a paycheck. There are some nice people that work for the company, but that is about it.

Cons

Short staffed, poor management, no direction, no money, bad atmosphere, no 401k match, benefit costs going up more then average, no pay increases, no communication, poor operations, a lot of bad employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to do some true organization development making clear lines of responsibilities and make people accountable. Have people work in their specific area and colaborate with other groups, but focus on doing their own job and giving direction to their own staff.

    I worked at C&D Technologies

    Pros

    Location and proximity to my house made this a favorable position. If you like hands on work, this is a great place. My supervisor and peers were educated and hard working. The company had talent in several of the key positions.

    Cons

    The strategic planning of the company was less than favorable. They try to encompass too many markets instead of keying in on the products that produce to the bottom line. The workforce does not realize the importance of a quality product. The manufacturing facilities are not strategically located nor are they fully utilized. There is no best business practices in place that govern the operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate the division, drop the low market share products and focus on developing a superior product for the major products.

    I worked at C&D Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good entry level company for foot into a door for better opportunites elsewhere. Learn what you can while there. Common workers are good folks.

    Cons

    Currently the company faces a multi-million dollar judgement against them for labor violations in Reynosa. The plant comptroller in Reynosa made an ethical slur against the Mexican workers by saying that "the Mexican workers must stay on the other side of the wall, because they are the ones who bring the beans to the table." The phrase is a very bad slur in Spanish. When two supervisors filed a written complaint to the director of operations, the complaint was never even responded to. Too many folks, just managing their careers and really not interested in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do better research when moving operations to another country and respect their laws and customs.
