I have been working at General Cable

Pros

Very good coworkers that are understanding to your role within the company. Also, the cafeteria has been remodeled and is nice.

Cons

The Operations VP's are not respected within the organization which creates a tense working environment. Also, you must be a member of their club if you want to feel as if you are contributing to the organization. Generally, there is an overall negative vibe in the office and the culture is very rigid. The Jeans days have been taken away and the company does very little for its employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take some time to engage and colloborate with your coworkers.

    Pros

    Long history of business success. Company has a history of good pay and benefits. Supportive coworkers and flexible work arrangements.

    Cons

    With company up for sale over the past two years in the worst economy ever experienced, Alcan Cable is trying to cost-cut their way to profitability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management Team needs to develop a new strategic plan for retaining and growing the business to capitalize on the pending recovery and look beyond short-term cost-cutting solutions.

    I worked at General Cable

    Pros

    Benefits pretty good, salary fair. Many worldwide locations across the globe. Convenient cafeteria in the building. Not too bad of a place.

    Cons

    Company has too many regulations and reporting to Wall Street. You have to provide a report for Everything you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have compasion for people, don't treat them like a number. Listen to employees ideas and suggestions and really consider them.
