Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Charlotte, NC

I have been working at Electrolux full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great Group of People to work with. Good Environment. Good Managers.

Cons

Public announcements "HIRING" but quietly laying off departments simutaneously. Sending everything to low labor countries creates significant low labor results.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Know your chinese engineering labor is generally good for about 2-4 years - then they move onto other companies with all of that knowledge we spent building them up. Likewise, look at Motorola's path - when they moved their production to China in the late 1990's it started out ok - then when they got effecient - their suppliers became their biggest compeitors. (Now Motorola Cellular in Libertyville, IL is vacant and HTC & Huawei are booming - both got their start from Motorola) - Short term outlook will have significant long term results. Upper High Management very nebulous, look at accounting numbers - quality runs asham. Failures they can't resolve without overkill support from US or Swedish engineers constantly flying over to china or mexico.

    I have been working at Electrolux full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    non. I have worked for the company when they first relocated. There are very few of those people still there. there are no pros for working at this company.

    Cons

    The company has many different computer systems. This instills a silos within the work place. They have rah rah once a month meetings that pat each other on the back with no use information. They layoff good people instead of doing real hiring. They would rather hire new instead of promoting within. New employees beware. You will never get a promotion!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is to far removed from what the employees actually do. A real training program for new employees would help. Reward those who work hard to help the customer instead of hiring from the outside or promoting the lazy workers.
