    Pros

    Job satisfaction depends on your dept. and manager. Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Company struggles with efficiency and ethics. Managers not hands on problem solvers. Lack of communication. Layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unqualified people were hired or promoted into management based on who they knew instead of what they could do, and lacked job and communication skills. Managers lacked an understanding of ethics when the company desperately needed good ethical decisions.

    Company pays well ,but lacks any systems...I can see how they went bankrupt and don't know how they stay in business.

    Pros

    Good pay. Interesting industry with a lot of variety in the processes required to make a battery. Have a huge opportunity to leverage there global stance and experience in the AGM market.unfortunately the complete lack of systems and abysmal production efficiencies guarantee they will get left in JCI and East Penn's dust.

    Cons

    Weak leadership. No ability to create a cohesive global company. Still feels li,e a conglomeration of multiple companies. Continuously losing ,market share. Continually closing plants... You name it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of dead weight. Focuses on plant productivity and cost reductions. Plants need to be autonomous and should house resident experts. Centralized engineering structure is out dated, costly, and ineffective.
