I worked at Daimler Trucks North America

Pros

Great pay and benefits. Able to see the results of your labor in a complete truck and able to point to a truck going down the road and tell your son..."I built that truck"

Cons

No Job Security
Company built plants in Mexico to take advantage of low labor costs.
Lack of communication between Senior managment and workers "ie when asked if company was building another Mexico plant...No! I am not aware of plans to build a plant in Mexico! And I should know, I'm the President! (Town Hall meeting with employees a couple short months before company announced they were building another Mexico Truck Plant)
Union protects workers with bad work ethics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication, Communication, Communication.
The American worker contributed to the companies success...but you have turned your back on the American worker to have a low wage worker build an inferior product.

    Pros

    Very little to list here. Plenty of opportunities for additional work when you do a good job?

    Cons

    All the pleasantries of working for the Borg. Top management is generally fat cats who are too busy defending their entitled position to make necessary changes. Trench warfare between departments. HR slowly whittles away already below market wages and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within based on merit, not because of back room deals between executives. Reinvent business processes.
