Pros

It's a job... the only adventure is wondering how it got this bad.
there are some great people here with their heads in the right place, but they are in the minority.

Cons

If they want to make your job miserable, they will find a way, ask any factory worker.

Some managers only point out the bad... never the good.

The merger with Andrew was awful. Andrew was clearly the better company/mgmt. of the 2 to work for.

Every year they degrade a benefit... just enough to upset you.

People in hickory come off as arrogant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I will not give these mgmt types my expertise... they can go fly a kite... better yet. go golfing... they do that well...

    Pros

    You don't have to pay for parking (surprising for as cheap as this company is!)
    Cafeteria is quite nice
    It's a paycheck

    Cons

    They say that Carlyle is good at cost-cutting... it's hard to believe there is any more costs left to cut once the good ole boy machine (aka - everyone knows that is Hickory!) got rid of them.

    This used to be an awesome company to work for (when it was Andrew). Now, manager's work you like crazy to make THEM look good and they never give the recognition which you are do after making them look good. Manager's didn't necessarily change per se - I mean, some did, - but rather the Hickory mentality slowly trickled in the doors of Andrew :(

    I hope that the machine in Hickory is rocked to it's very core once Carlyle takes over and they get a taste of their own medicine! Perhaps they'll even close down Hickory - that would be sad............... all those VP's applying at Wal-Mart and Wendy's.........

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like dictators and start acting like manager's and recognizing that the people on the lower levels are WHY you are WHERE you are in your career.

    Pros

    It is a global company

    Cons

    -Poor leadership & communication in Audit Department
    -Performance Feedback is a joke. There's no formal process and not communicated to the individual it pertains to. So everyone in the dept knows your performance except to whom it concerns.
    -No work/life balance. Told to travel out of country for weeks with no work/life balance
    -Questionable management ethics
