    I have been working at General Cable full-time

    Pros

    I stated the above years of service in that way to insure I remain anonymous. As a whole it has been a very rewarding experience working at General Cable. My fellow employees are a great group of people to work with. I have a highly technical position and believe the company does its very best to stay a "State of the Art World Class" organization. Very good vacation plan compared to other companies I have worked for.

    Cons

    Like any other employer I have worked for there are some issues with some managers having their pet employees. I believe those managers fail to look at the skill set, talent level and proven performance in decision making. Concerning both promotions and pay increases. However I want to point out that I said some managers. Just like every large company has some bad employees they will also have some bad managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better HR training to managers. Some are placing the company at risk of legal litigation. Mostly because of their lack of education in HR. There are never any winners when an employee sues a company. The costs of defending those types of claims is one reason the company spends so much money retaining lawyers.

  2. Solid company but needs to find a way to elevate itself in such a mature market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you say you want to live in a paperless world, you should act on it.
