Former Employee - Manufacturing Engineer in Roxboro, NC

I worked at GKN Driveline North America full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good company with established business processes, I was given plenty of opportunities to develop myself and show what I can do. Very good lean practices and committed to educating the whole workforce in lean. The working atmosphere was good and everyone always pulled together to get to the job done

Cons

As an organization it leaves buying machines and committing money too late in the process which makes it challenging to meet project timelines.
It also does not do a good job of attracting the best talent.
Senior management is sometimes indecisive and leaves decisions to the very last minute

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen more to some of the challenges of your people. Spend money earlier, it will help you be more successful. If you don't spend money, don't be surprised if it doesn't work as planned.

    Pros

    Stable company that tries to do the best for its employees. Promotions from within are now being done as they were not before. Mgmt seems to be more consistent.

    Cons

    Manager who turned company around left and it seems to be falling apart. Should pay those that are vial to organization not what a cart shows, same for all levels in the organization.
