I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time

Pros

Working with Contech has been great in their management team. The company is looking to expand and is very open to suggestions from all levels of the company. Also, being a part of American Manufacturing is important as well

Cons

Pay is a little low for like work, sometimes feels that there are too many initiatives going on to proper focus on, nurture, and cultivate single ideas/projects

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow new initiatives to come out at the plant slowly over time instead of adding multiple initiatives rapidly. Give the plant time to adjust and refine new SOP's before pushing in another.

    Pros

    Great sales and marketing position, with great exposure to market due to breadth of portfolio.
    Create your own schedule, good benefits (car, phone, med, etc)
    Technical experts and staff second to none.
    Old company promised good return for good work, you reap what you sow.

    Cons

    Management (ELC) gets in the way of progress and growth
    Stifilng of regional management to conform to a National model which doesn't work, since engineering/construction markets are regional.
    Nationalization has alienated customers and compromised product quality.
    Inability of management to embrace 21st Century "Consultative Selling" of highly engineered systems and "Value Added" approach to customers.
    Pressure to conform to Corporate initiatives for performance metrics, such as number of calls per week and reporting, rather than letting the sales numbers speak for success.
    Company let too many good people go without realizing how poorly they would be missed and how underappreciated they were.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave and never comeback. You destroyed a great company.
    Perhaps you can apply your commodity sales experience in China.
    You do not belong in the modern Engineering/Construction marketplace.

    Pros

    Great employees (if there are any left)

    Cons

    Yet another round of job cuts last month, how many more times will senior management do this before they realize they have decimated what once was a great company? Morale is awful, everyone is looking over their shoulders wondering what will happen next and nobody has trust in the executive team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your egos aside and leave so that some real leaders can come in and salvage what is left of this company. Your employees are smart enough to see right through what you are doing, stop spending money frivolously when you haven't made any contribution to the company.
