    I have been working at General Cable full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the people I have seen come and go have become really good friends, excellent resources. The company does attract highly talented individuals but tends to have high turnover.
    The autonomy is nice, you organize your own priorities. Some bosses are great, depends on where you land.
    Gym & cafeteria.

    Cons

    Perks? None. Compensation? Below average to average. Promotions? Only the few in the fold.

    The company wastes money. If the shareholders only knew. Equipment that doesn't work, man hours spent on projects that go nowhere, excess trips (ex. multiple associates to one plant, multiple associates to baseball games) during a time we fire so many people and are doing feasibility studies to decide which NA plant to close? Yet you worry about my work lunch?
    There is a skills/profile in our files of which no one pays attention. There have been job openings (of course), for many positions which I am highly qualified. This skills/profile is a development program we do every year, that no one really utilizes when filling positions. Such a waste to spend time on.
