    Pros

    An interesting industry. Cuurent products are fairly robust-no thanks to management.

    Cons

    Senior management(located in a different state) has NO background in new locomotive manufacture, marketing and aftermarket support...and it shows.

    Certain managers whose careers were absolutely dead in days of GM ownership have risen to exalted hights under current owners. Amazing !!!

    Minimal focus on customer-and the customer is not unaware.

    CAT seems to keep EMD at arms' length-for ??? reason. EMD is supposed to operate under the "CAT Code" (which was distributed to EMD folks with great fanfare) but managers (and CAT) seem to be oblivious of ongoing violations of same.

    Little or no investment in employees-in the form of equipment and professional development. Compensation levels appears to have dropped for newer employees.

    Corrosive, toxic work environment. Management is big on playing the blame game-and dumping on junior level employees.

    Way understaffed for the challenges at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Sell EMD to a company (Bombardier, Siemens) who has a better grasp of the marketplace and is in the business for the long term.

    Comp is good. Product is interesting.

    Cons

    Communication is poor. Executive team is disconnected from the day-to-day business.

    Advice to Management

    Have CAT come in and clean house.
