Pros

The pro's were the people in the group. They were very helpfull, and they encouraged you to go for it more in terms of finishing projects.

Cons

Upper Managment didn't have the company very stable. It lead to the office being shut down. The cons was that the company laied off a lot of workers due to the move from Suffern, NY to Highland Heights, KY

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to haveto have better upper management so that you don't kill the chemistry of the groups.

    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.

    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.
